|Gerald, Pam, and I met half-way in Manhattan, Kansas for lunch and some encouraging conversation|
During a brief roadtrip from Omaha to Manhattan to North Platte, I managed to visit several folks - friends, family, supporters, and fellow missionaries - and simultaneously did a bit of reminiscing. It was wonderful to see everyone, plus a few more who aren't pictured here.
|Deb and Charlie (who I've known since the mid-70's) recently retired after over 30 years as missionaries in Thailand.|
It was wonderful to see them again and 'compare notes', so to speak, about life in a different land and culture.
|It was wonderful to catch up briefly with a few of the Epting family!|
|My long-time friend, Mary, always welcomes me with a bed and a smile during my stay.|
|Wow, a lot of memories flooded my mind when I happened to drive by our old house in North Platte!|
My first three children joined our family while we lived here (approximately 1975-1981).
|I've always loved sunflowers...|
|... as well as wild grasses that grow by the side of the road in Nebraska!|
