  1. Chan and Bertis were such an encouragement to us while we were in Abilene transitioning from ministry in the Dominican Republic to Guayaquil, Ecuador. We last saw them in Amarillo while on furlough in 2017. I’m from Amarillo, and my mom was attending Washington Ave at the time of her death. So many warm memories of your parents … I even went with Chan to DCC to listen to Sam’s senior sermon. May the Lord comfort you all and give you hope.
