DNR – Do Not Resuscitate: When you face the impossible in life, but know you’ll win no matter the outcome

Dave Wall spent the majority of his adult working career as a linguist, consultant, and director with a mission agency near the equator in the South Pacific. Life wasn’t always easy for Dave and his family as they lived in remote conditions with little direct access to medical care and the conveniences of the modern world. But the life experience gained from learning several languages and immersion in bizarre tribal culture has equipped Dave to relate life experience in a front row seat kind of way. Dave and his wife Cindy currently reside by a lake in northern Minnesota and continue to enjoy their five children and 11 grandchildren. And of course, Dave still plays hockey.
