	I am just getting back into my Greek studies after 12 years absence, so 
please forgive me if I miss the boat here. If I understand DOKIMION is to 
be translated "proof" (ATR) rather than proving, it makes more sense to me 
to take HUMWN to stress the relationship/possession of faith.  The faith is 
something you possess and the proof is the end result that works itself out 
in patience.
	I appreciate your prayers.  Twelve years is a long time to be in the 
"belly of the whale."  Everything is rusty.
