More great visits with dear friends

This next visit was with friends that we met 42 years earlier. When Kent was training as a missionary pilot so were these men as well. Jan and Jim invited us and the other couple, Don and Claudelle to come and have a mini reunion at their home.

It was so fun to be all together and sharing what God had done in our lives. We had all visited each other some over the years but since we were from different parts of the country all three couples had not been together in one place for 42 years.

We did drive around to see the airport where the guys took their training and even Jim worked there for many years as well after some time in Brazil doing missionary flying. We drove to one of the local earthen dams and right by where we had lived for 2 1/2 years. Our little old house had been torn down and nice log house replaced it. It was fun to see the old neighborhood though. We also drove to see how the downtown had changed since we lived there. Not a lot had changed , although some different businesses in the stores than we had known. And everywhere we went we would stop and chat a bit as well.

Our time with the others came to a halt much sooner than I would have liked but we were scheduled to speak in our church there that had supported us for many years. So way too soon, Kent and I were leaving these dear friends again. Don and Claudelle stayed a bit longer and I was so glad they were free to do so.

God blessed us all with a wonderful fun time.. I only regretted not being able to set off fireworks as a bunch of the students had done at Don and Claudelle’s house many years earlier…

We are so grateful for these dear friends and maybe when we all get to heaven we will get to hear more of the stories of their lives as well.

Gratefully,

Jan for the Roaming Reimers
