Micronesian Missionary Reunion

Yesterday was a fun day of blessing. We had some very special visitors: Steve and Anne Stinnette and Steven and Angela Leuice. We were all missionary colleagues back in the mid-80s in Palau and Micronesia. We also worked together in Guam in the 90s. We were trying to figure out when was the last time all 3 of us couples were together. As far as we could remember it was probably 1997 or 98. So this was really a momentous occasion. Steve and Anne's daughter, Amy, and our daughter Missy were with us and we also each had one of our grandchildren playing loudly near us. We spent a lot of the afternoon reminiscing about old times and catching up on what friends and colleagues that we knew are doing now. We talked about future plans and hopes for ministry. For me, it was very encouraging to hear what God is doing in their lives and to hear about how they have been praying for me. It was also good to get their perspectives and advice on our future steps. The Leuices are now ministering close by and I am hoping we can do some ministry together in the near future. I hope we don't have to wait another 20 years before we all get together again!
