2001 - DANIEL SCHANTZ
of Moberly, Missouri, writes, "The year l999 was one of magnificent monotony for the Schantzes, and the new millennium tiptoed in like a kitten."But the calmness stirred a bit when a little redheaded boy named Abram was born to Dan
's elder daughter Teresa, of Kansas City, Missouri, making a total of four grandchildren for Dan and Sharon.Dan's other daughter Natalie lives nearby and often comes to town to visit him and Great-Grandma Dale, Sharon's mother.Dan's wife of thirty-six years continues her work as assistant teacher at West Park Elementary School, and she comes home each day with both funny and sobering tales to tell.In his thirty-three years of teaching at Central Christian College, Dan feels as if he is in the pause before the race, as the school begins to reach out to a global base for recruitment and service.
Already many of Dan's students are involved in internships and ministries all over the world."I feel like my final decade of teaching could be the most interesting of all.I have a worldwide family of former students, and we have the same Father watching over us all."
