Once there was a time Theresa & Adolph had only their German Bibles and when they sat together in the evening and read we children were left out because they refused to let us learn or speak German. So the campaign started that they needed an English Bible and as soon as money could be had they would send to St. Louis Concordia Publishing House for a nice large usable Bible. After that, at night after the kitchen was cleaned the bright light was on the table, we all sat around and Theresa would read the Bible. There would often be discussions in German, then once again the explanation and then the rest of the chapter was read. I remember those times so clearly. It was a real miracle to us children to hear our parents read and tell us all about the Grace of Gaod and his son our Savior Jesus.
