More Friends Come By

1003137_10151754603937700_1920529606_nI have mentioned that we love having people come by and see us. This is especially true now since, once I get into the transplant process in a week or two, I will not be allowed to have people come over because my immune system will be compromised. On Saturday Dan and Renee Newton came by, spent the afternoon and had dinner with us. Dan and I were high school and church youth group friends. We played a lot of sports together in high school. Renee and I started teaching at 10686705_10205063211556792_6227696652529126072_nBaymonte Christian School in the same year: Fall of 1980. Dan and Renee also have been faithful supporters of our ministry since we first went out to Micronesia. We had a great time talking about old times, family and their recent mission trip to Belgium. I saw them when I was in Chicago a couple years ago, but Joyce had not seen them probably for 30 years. Joyce and I are really bummed that we forgot to take pictures when Dan and Renee were with us. So I snatched a picture from their Facebook page and another of Dan and I with our high school baseball team. That is me front row left and Dan is first row 2nd from the right.

They greeted us when we arrived on the plane in February of 1993. They served with us in ministry at Yigo Baptist Church and May was office manager and receptionist for many years at PIU. Their two boys and our three kids pretty much grew up together. We consider them part of our family. Thus, it was very encouraging to see them, hear about how well their boys are doing and get caught up on their lives.

It was a real blessing to us to see both of these couples and we pray God’s blessing on them.
