Traveling and remembering our veterans

We have been moving again. We spent last weekend in Nampa, Idaho at Mission Aviation Fellowship’s Headquarters. That is where we spent the summer in 2010. So we have several friends and Kent has some first cousins that live there. We were able to get together with all that were available.

It was a busy weekend also for Kent as he was getting new tires put on the truck and car and then had to have a CV joint, put in the car. BUT…The CV joint was under the car’s initial warranty and so we were grateful for that.  For those that don’t know that has something to do with an axle. 

So we are grateful to be safer on the road as we pulled out on Wednesday morning and drove to Pendleton, Oregon. Yes, that is the town where they make the Pendleton woolens.

Kent had a lot of office work to get caught up on, so we parked early and he got a lot done.  Kent has had lots of interviews with several couples that re interested in going with WorldVenture. He has been processing their paperwork to get them in the application stage. So he has spent a lot of time on the phone and also then documenting the conversations. That has been a lot of paperwork but we are sooo glad to have new people interested in serving God overseas.

Friday we pulled into SAMBICA camp in Bellevue, WA. We are glad to be here. I went right to work on Saturday afternoon as it was sunny. Sunday we re-connected with the Asian church where we attended lots last summer.

I did want to take the opportunity of Memorial Day celebration to THANK the veterans out there. I am sooo grateful for the freedoms we have in this country. I am so grateful for all those that have served our country and for those that gave their lives. After living overseas I can even more appreciate the sacrifice of our military personnel.

I now have 4 male family members, two brothers and two nephews all buried in the same military cemetery in Pennsylvania. It is very hard to say goodbye to these family members and my nephews were way to young to die. They served our country well but none of them died in the line of duty.

Here is pictures of that cemetery:My brother Ralph’s is first

My nephew Christopher who was killed in an auto accident not even a year ago.

An overview of the cemetery, all of these are new graves since last July.

Please THANK a VETERAN for their service…not only today but any day you see them. Just take a moment to thank them. That is what I do… May you treasure your freedoms in America! And pray for our country to honor not only our veterans but God as well.

May God bless you!

    Hi Jan, So glad hear that all is well even with the last few things that have no doubt bit into your funds…but at least you are doing well and getting to the places that you and Kent hold so dearly to your hearts…My God be with you both always and keep you well and safe.
