No Time to Quit



Della Letkeman


5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″

One of the luxuries of 90-year-olds is looking back over the hills and valleys, the ups and downs of a lifetime. I always shunned the idea of a biography on the principle that the more honor you get in this world, the less in the next. But when Della Letkeman asked about it, I agreed to cooperate fully. I had just made, for my own interest, a 90-year summary of the places where I had lived since birth. I had a pile of 35 diaries which Della researched. She also contacted my family and old friends for pictures of stories. After I know not how many hundreds of hours, we spent three days reading the manuscript orally to correct any minute errors which might have crept in. Finally the computer disc was given to Alma Turnbull for typesetting.

The apparent catastrophe in a life can turn out to be just the first steps to some larger advance. Our prayer is that those who read this book will give God the glory and understand that there is no time to quit.


Della Letkeman and her husband Bill served the Lord as missionaries in Colombia and Ecuador for 13 years. As a commended worker with Everyday Publications for 26 years, Della witnessed the power of God’s Word in transforming lives. Although officially “retired”, she remains active as an author and Editorial Committee coordinator. She now serves with New Life Prison Ministry in Canada. Her latest book is a biography of the Apostle Paul.
