20171029_124600 (768x1024)After the apheresis, harvest of stem cells, we decided to take Saturday off and stay at the Stanford apartment so we could rest and catch up on the sleep we lost from the 3am drive the day before. It worked out well for us, because PIU CFO, Nino Pate, was in San Francisco, on his way back to Guam from the TRACS conference in Orlando. We met at a café right across Highway 101 from the SF airport. FB_IMG_1509321845086It was great to see Nino. We spent almost two hours talking about our families, how things are going at PIU and what has been going on in our lives. Nino and I had offices right across the hall from each other and I really miss being able to talk with him regularly. I also miss Gwen poking her head into the doorway of my office to check out what I am doing. We were very happy to be able to get some news about the school and to hear how the PIU family is doing. We pray for PIU and the people there every day and now we can pray more knowledgeably. We were also sad because seeing Nino reminded us how much we miss our life, ministry and relationships at PIU and our other friends on Guam. It was really a blessed time and thank you to Nino for making the effort to come and see us.
