Waiting and WorkingSeptember 28, 2023
Dear friends and family,
Our return to Chad has been delayed for several reasons, and we are still in America. We just wanted to share a quick update.
We praise God for traveling mercies after traveling close to 7000 miles around the country, visiting churches and family. Thank you to everyone for the speaking invitations and for the visits we had.
Our return to Chad has been delayed for various reasons. Our most recent delay relates to a finding in Liliana's routine eye examination; this resulted in our driving back up to Minnesota for further testing. We praise the Lord that the results were positive, and that she is apparently clear of any serious condition.
Last Sabbath our son Gideon was baptized in a beautiful mountain stream in Tennessee. He desires to serve the Lord and be faithful to Him for the rest of His life. We are very happy for his decision, and have enjoyed seeing him growing spiritually over the years.
Let me share a short story from one of our workers. He was recently in the capital for about a month to acquire his drivers license. While there, he distributed over 700 tracts to various people. He shared this experience:
We will never know until heaven the full affect of the thousands of tracts and books being distributed. Please join with me in praying for all the literature being produced. Because of the printed page, people are being drawn closer to Jesus Who is the source of life and truth.

In His service,
Jonathan, Melody, Gideon, Liliana, and Eliora Dietrich
