Who is DDSrail?
I'm a grumpy old retired fundamental missionary. I'm a Biblical language graduate. I spent most of my ministry planting Churches in Montana. I also have been a pastor in some established Churches in places like Midlothian, Illinois and Orr, Minnesota. I love to study the Bible. I do most of my own translating. I'm a Byzantine Text proponent, but not a King James Version fanatic. I have my own views, and call it the way I see it. I will do my best to always be Biblical. I have a temper when it comes to trivializing the Christ whom I love, and the Book that reveals Him.

I must shamefully reveal that my wife and I are getting divorced after 18 years of marriage. I have tendered my resignation to the mission where I have had Emeritus status since my retirement. The following is that letter.
It is with great shame that I must tell you Nancy and I are getting divorced. I have been verbally abusive to her, and our children throughout our marriage. It reached a climax two months ago when my anger caused her to have me committed to the mental ward with our pastor's approval. She left with the Children to live at her sister's since then. There are a lot of complex emotions, and circumstances that vary with how each of us perceive the events that have lead to this shameful disclosure. The hurt is deep. Much deeper then I ever imagined. It is not just Nancy, but all three children who have revealed the monster I've been to them. I never physically harmed any of them, but you know that verbal abuse can hurt far more then physical pain. I shamefully admit it is true, and am guilty. We can't agree on any method of reconciliation that would work. It is complex as these things always are, but the bottom line is we are divorcing.
I would like to tender my resignation from NICE due to this sinful failure on my part. I must take full responsibility as the head of the family for letting things deteriorate to this point. I am sorry for the reproach that I have brought upon you and all who so faithfully serve Christ through NICE. It is with deep regret that I tender my resignation.
Your Servant in Christ,
Don D. Srail
