It seems like so much has happened since our last post. I’m going to break this into two posts to keep things concise.
Our last semester at IBP ended with a beautiful graduation night. There was such joy and celebration in the air. Everyone seemed to have a great time. It is at these times that our multipurpose building suddenly seems small. Some wonderful friends visited that we hadn’t had the opportunity to spend quality time with in years.
We are so thankful for our time together, Solomon and Lori! Love you, Friends!!!
December we also had the opportunity to travel home to the states and spend the holidays with family. First, however, we were privileged to be in Texas for a very special occasion. The engagement of our daughter, Felicia. Her boyfriend, Caleb, knew we would be passing through Texas for a couple of days and so waited for us to be there before he popped the question. She said, “Yes!
In Texas we were also able to see Eddie’s family. We attended church together, exchanged gifts and simply enjoyed being together. We are thankful to the Lord for allowing us that special time in Texas.
Our final destination was California, where I got to see my family. I am always especially thankful to see my mom, who is now 91 years old. Our son, Jeremy, flew in from Minnesota with his girlfriend, Ali, for this special family time. Felicia flew in, too! And all too soon it came to a close as we all headed back to our different corners of the world and to our unique responsibilities. A special shoutout to my sister and brother-in-law for hosting all of us. Actually, they are the ones who instigated this holiday get together. Thank you, Beck & Chris!
