"Although HERMAN BUTLER is in a home in Colorado Springs, his mind is still very active in the many ways he can serve God." In a recent letter, he said, "I like to look west out of my window where I can see the mountains. It always brings to my mind Psalm 121:1-2, 'I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from where comes my help. My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.'"

THE REV DONALD ZUHN, Lutheran pastor for the Deaf, Houston, Texas, former pastor for Bethel Deaf Lutherans in Colorado, is continuing to recuperate from the stroke he had in October 1996.
