Renewing acquaintances

42 years ago we met two couples who were also studying to be missionary pilots. We really loved these couples and have kept in touch over these intervening years BUT we hadn’t all been together since then..

So knowing that Kent and I would be in Tennessee where I thought they both lived near each other.. I contacted them to see if we could have a mini reunion. I had planned it in another city from where we had all lived, but when they got back with me..one of the couples had moved back to our original city where we had met and the guys had studied. Wow, and that couple even invited us all to come to their house to visit there. It was a little like when we all were there 42 years ago..without kids and just learning a lot of life and missions.

So that is what we all did. It was so fun to stay together and to hear the stories of the other couples and their lives since. We have maintained some contact but all of us hadn’t heard the way God had worked in each of the couples lives. It was interesting to hear and some of it was sad, as there were many hard thins the one couple had had to go through. It was so wonderful to hear of God’s healing and blessings on them since.

We also went to places around the town that we used to go to and just some places of interest and to the airport where the guys had studied.

I must say that I was sad to leave them all but we know we will see each other I heaven someday if not here on this earth. It was a wonderful time and thanks Jan and Jim for hosting us!

So grateful for these special friends!

Love,

Jan for the Roaming Reimers
