GOD BLESS YOU, DOUG AND MILLIE!
How many people can two lives touch? Especially two lives who have been surrendered to Jesus and His will of mercy? Last September, during the Fall Retreat we honored the life of Jesus in two of our dearest friends, Rev. Doug and Millie Detert as they transitioned into retirement. Jesus brought together a boy from Montana and a girl from Boston, MA, almost a miracle in itself, and through the love and examples given them produced a lasting legacy that cannot be ignored. It is one thing to read about David and Goliath in the Bible, but it is a much more personal thing to see spiritual giant-slayers living in front of you. Their “inescapable example” has been an immeasurable blessing to many. After over 30 years in the Zion Faith Homes, and almost 20 years here at Evergreen Center, Doug and Millie are pleased to step back and see Jesus ministering through others. This has been a gradual transition, but Doug is happy to stay busy caring for Millie, which has included learning to cook! Millie’s health is slowly declining, and she is glad to have her husband close by. It is a joy to them to see the young people they have helped giving away what they were given. They are proving Doug’s life verse that, “The end of a thing is better than its beginning.” Eccl. 7:8. Please continue to uphold them in prayer.

NEWS FROM THE CLASSROOM
Maria Crews is teaching English this term. Maria graduated from the EC a few years ago, and helped edit the book, A Vast Simplicity, which was written by Reverend Detert. Maria drives up to teach here every other Monday from Kenosha, Wisconsin, where she serves on staff at the House of Prayer church. Under Maria's guidance, our interns are learning how to write and communicate better, which will serve them in whatever role God has for them. Having Maria teach English helps balance out our curriculum this term.
