Mar.3 Suzanne and I have done a lot of travel throughout Indonesia in the past five weeks. Roger also travelled with a friend to Thailand for a few days. We are now in Papua to see our kids and friends.
Jan.28 We are back in Indonesia until May. We will be visiting Brian and many of our friends in N.Sumatra. Roger will be going to Thailand in February and then meet up with Suzanne in Papua at the beginning of March. We expect to make one trip to the interior to visit with our friends in the village that we lived in for over 30 years.
Jan.11 We are having serious issues with our technology here in Asia. Roger's cell phone is missing, two computers are not reliable. This has all happened since hours before leaving the USA. We believe that this is a direct enemy attack.
Jan.04 We are on our way to southeast Asia to visit our daughter and son-in-law. They are expecting another child this month! Then we return to Indonesia for three months! Please pray for us as we travel and make sure you see our travel calendar!
Aug 15 "Pearls of Wisdom" our new monthly devotional was launched today! If you receive our e-News, this addendum will be in your email box soon! (This month only, it will arrive twice. Nope, you're not seeing double, we're doing some systems testing ;-)
Aug 14 This website will undergo a significant systems upgrade in the next few days. During this maintenance, access to the website from our primary site, www.rogerdoriot.com, will be impacted. The backup site, rogerdoriot.webs.com, will be available. Thank you for your understanding.
May.3 We are on our spring road tour that will take us to Chicago, Ohio, Michigan, Ontario (Canada) and West Virginia. If you subscribe to our e-News, we can notify you in advance when we will be within approximately 100mi of you.
Feb.9 Roger is at the GIDI Church Conference in Sentani and will present to all of the conference delegates today about Vision 2025, Mother Tongue Translation and how they are important to delivery of the Gospel to Indonesia.
Jan.14 This week we welcome new two "virtual assistants" to our team! Grace Dugger, from Vancouver, WA, and Donna Williams, from Atlanta, GA join Rita Falanga from Jarrettsville, MD and Celia Crowley in Philadelphia, PA, in helping us with the day to day work required to keep our work moving forward. We could use more help. If you have some adminstrative skills, a computer with reliable Internet connection and a little time, please contact us today.
Jan.2 ~ ANSWER TO PRAYER! Our car was written off as a result of an accident in December. After negotiating with the insurance company, we settled with $1000 more than they had originally stated would be paid out! We have found a low cost Buick Century that we will use for a few months. When we return from Asia in April, we will need to replace it with another vehicle that will be more appropriate for a lot of highway travel. Thanks for praying and if you know of a slightly larger and more comfortable car for long highway travel that would be available in the spring, please contact us.
Dec.7 ~ The Tolivers (Mom, Dad and "small" brood of 8 kids) are close friends of ours here in Dallas. John & Gwen are Wycliffe Associates here at the International Linguistics Center. Gwen has just published her new book, "Seed Sowers Gospel-Planting Adventures", a collection of stories about modern missions including a chapter about us!
