Our March 2018 Newsletter


__________________________________________________



We've been trying out various formats for sending out our Cru Communique newsletter ... sending by postal mail, by email, or a combination. Our most recent choice has been to send our news in the format of a large-sized two-sided postcard. We hope that it is easier to read, as it is very visible when it arrives in the mail. 

We greatly appreciate the prayers and financial support that we receive from churches and from individuals, and want to keep in touch with you!

Memories of Dad Siebert

Just 2 1/2 weeks after our wonderful Family Christmas, Cherry's 96 year-old father passed away after a fall and a heart attack. These pages taken from Cherry's digital scrapbook, share part of the story of Dad Siebert's passing.








It was a sudden passing, and though we are grieving our loss, we are also celebrating that our father received his wish of seeing his Savior and being re-united with our dear mother who passed away in 2007. It was so special to have Cherry's three brothers and two sisters-in-law here (from the east and west coasts). Along with other family and relatives, we had a sweet, memorable time together sharing memories. The Memorial Service on Jan. 18 was filled with tributes and memories from the 38 years that Cherry's parents spent in Japan as missionaries with SEND, Int'l.
