I'm not sure when we were last in touch. We now have 4 children ages 4 - Hannah, 8 - Danielle, 11 - Andrew and 14 - Elliott. Since leaving Taylor, I studied at Northwest Bible College (Bth) and at SouthEastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest NC (MDiv). I was ordained in 1993 and serve in the Church of the Lutheran Brethren of America. I pastored in Calgary in 1992, Sexsmith, AB 1995 and in July of 1997 came to Chandler, Arizona as the founding pastor for a new church. This is where we are now. It's going slow as there was no core group when we came and I've been solo pastor so far but we thank the Lord for seven families that have come together as a core group and we are also thankful that we will be able to have youth and young adult servant teams with us for the coming year. Please pray for us.

Grace never complained about having cancer and never complained about pain. She was firm in her faith and an example of a life well lived trusting God every day. She was aptly named Grace. Those who visited her as she fought cancer left more encouraged in their faith. I was blessed to have her as my wife, friend and lover.

Being a dad to our son, Daniel (born 1996), filled his life. Paul died suddenly and unexpectedly in April/99 of a congenital heart condition. After Paul's death, Daniel and I moved back to Edmonton.

In 1997, I took a 2-week trip to Ecuador with Sunrise Community Church in Sacramento and God used that trip to call me to the mission field. I am now a nurse at Hospital Vozandes del Oriente in Shell, Ecuador. I went to language school in Costa Rica and started ministry here in Shell January 2000. God has been really working in my life since I graduated from Taylor 15 years ago. I know that God has ordained every step to bring me to the point where I now am. As I look back I can see how He has put every step of the plan together. My greetings to everyone! God's richest blessings! I would love to hear from anyone I was in school with from 81-83.

Perry Friesen, BRE 1982 (PnLFriesen@aol.com)
I graduated with an M Div. and an M A. in Counseling from NABS in 1986. I was pastor of youth and family ministry for 6 years at South Calgary Community Church ('86-'92). There I met my wife Lynda at a CE conference (yeah, Lou Sawchenko), and went on a short term mission trip to Russia in 1992. That was life altering, and after some further training, we became full time missionaries with the C&MA. During our first term '94-98, Sarah was born in Moscow in 1995. We studied Russian for 2 years, and then started a church plant in Krasnodar. During our furlough year, Katelyn was born in 1999. Now we are back in Russia, in a city called Maikop. For more details and pictures, see our web page on SCCC's web site: http://www.southcalgary.org/missions/friesen.shtml. God bless!

Well, the B.A.R. was the first of three degrees for me, the next two being a B.A. double-majoring in Economics and Political Science, and an M.B.A. in Finance and Management Science. I also took a year of law school, but realized something very important at the end of the first year -- I liked the study of law, but hated the idea of being a lawyer! Since then, I've married a wonderful woman named Karen, started raising Shih-Tzus ("Gadget" and "Gizmo") and created several consulting firms as well as a software development company, all of which have kept me quite busy. I'm still involved in I.T. consulting and software development, but middle-age is starting to slow me down a *bit*. And yes, I'm still into photography, for those who remember me with a camera glued to my face -- only now, the wonders of modern technology mean I can enjoy the "digital darkroom." I do appreciate living in the 21st Century. With brief stints elsewhere, Edmonton's been home since my days at N.A.B.C. I'd welcome anyone who wants to contact me from the years I spent at the college. God bless you all.

Arnold Rapske, Certificate, 1946 – 48
We moved to Calgary in February this year and now live in a condominium. A medical incident was the cause of the rapid decision to move. We have met a number of friends here. We have two children in Calgary as well. Energy level has been drastically reduced and we are limited in activities. We are still in the process of choosing a church to attend. I was in the employ of the college for 35 years. The first 17 years were devoted to teaching and the rest of the years involved library management. I am very thankful for the opportunity I had of being involved at the college and am satisfied that I did the best I could in my interaction with students and staff. Posted May 2005.

Hans & Jule (Weber) Serger, 1966 - 72
The past 30 years have been a wonderful adventure with God. Jule & I met at CTI and were married in 1969 after my first year of university. We were back at NABC that fall as house parents in the girls dorm. Our first daughter was born the year I graduated and she too attended NABC. Now she works as a ward clerk in the hospital. That year we also began serving as pastor for 17 years beginning in Trochu then Whiteshell and lastly at Balgonie. In those years our 2nd daughter came, Heidi who now teaches music in the elementary school system. After 17 years in pastoral ministry the Lord blessed us through a time of transition where I served four different NAB churches in Saskatchewan on an interim basis and finally ended up working as a technician at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. But my ministry has not ended. Over the years I have developed the art of ventriloquism and use it in a variety of ways, but mainly in children's programming and summer camps. That ministry has a high demand that I can't begin to meet while working full time. Another area of ministry has been learning to play the saw. Its a wonderful ethereal quality and adds to our worship group each Sunday at Calvary Baptist Church where we attend. For ten years and now with the help of 8 other musicians we minister regularly at two nursing homes each month. It seems that they love the puppets as much as the kids. Jule is nursing part time and looking to slow down. The adventure continues. Praise the Lord he's the Goal! posted 09/02
Milton and Alice (Cirankewitsch) Zeeb, 1948-1951
Alice & I met at CTI during our Second year 1950-51 and we celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary this Aug 31, 2001. Alice was from Trochu, Alta. and I was from the States. I am a Grad. of NABS ('60) and also a M.Th. from Princeton Seminary (73). We pastored 12 years (two Churches, Kenosha, Wi./Philadelphia, PA.) and served 22 years as Area Minister in the South Central Area for NAB. We lived in Texas for 13 years and recently relocated to Kansas City, MO. in a Townhouse. Alice & I have done 7 Interim Ministries in NAB Churches since our retirement in 1994, following the Triennial in Dallas. We have two daughters, Faith & Joy. Faith and her husband pastor a BGC Church in Colorado Springs, CO. and they have one daughter graduating from HS in 2002, Rachel Anne. Joy is married and she & her husband live in Seattle. and Joy has one son, Jesse, also graduating from HS in 2002. We love our family, our memories of CTI and still in touch with many friends from that era. God is Good and praise Him for his Grace and Mercy.
