Hah! Reading a greek new testament to his youngest grand-baby? That sounds like something my dad would do!

Sounds like a real man, even if he does root for the (shudder) Red Sox (spit, sputter, spit).

That's a man with a lot of accomplishments. Though they are all impressive, I'd have to say his family is his greatest achievement.

Firepig and Z,
We both received training at Missionary Medical Intensive. This supplies the missionary who will be living in an area without medical service, the equivalent to the EMT training along with a midwifery course and dental training. we then worked in accord with the Venezuelan Ministry of Health and set up the dispensary and other medical endeavors including malaria control and treatment.
