Easter with Family, a conference and travel

I love Easter. It reminds me of our Lord and all He did for us..and then the resurrection day to celebrate the victory over death and SIN. It reminds me that Christ gives us victory. I love the spring flowers and all the spring colors. Also I love the newness of starting over…because nature has started to bloom again. I loved seeing these Iris in bloom too.

We are so grateful that this year again we could be with some of Kent’s family for Easter. His Uncle Mel and wife Chris live in Las Vegas as well as a first cousin and her family. They had also invited Chris’ son’s family. We all have been together before and it was so nice. Again this Easter we had a grand time. Chris’ granddaughters were such fun to be with.

Uncle Mel had taken a fall the week before but was in rare form despite his Parkinson’s. He almost runs with his walker though and it made me just a bit nervous. But I did get them to stay put long enough to get a picture.

We had several times that we go to see them including Easter Service at their church where a clear presentation of the gospel was given. So great to hear that and on the day that every Christian should proclaim that message.

Easter dinner was at first cousin Karen and Tim Dolan’s house. It was a delicious Ham dinner. We all brought something to help but Karen did most of the heavy cooking. Thanks Karen and Tim too.

After Easter weekend we had a conference. It was with other owners of the samp type of Rv that we have. These are to get together and learn things from each other and also from speakers about various things about living or maintaining our RVs. Kent did a seminar on solar for RVs and also on full time living. We had many opportunities to speak of God’s love as well. It was a fun and busy week.See all the rigs parked near each other to visit better.

We did make some new friends too, but didn’t get pictures of them. Opps!

Then we headed on down the road…we went about 200 miles a day. First night was at a very peaceful roadside pull off. WE had three other Rvs with us that night but it was sure peaceful.

It took us 4 days to reach our next destination which is where we are currently parked near Roseburg, Oregon. That is southern Oregon but along the 1-5 corridor.

We are here for about two months. Kent has already been able to meet with several people including the pastor of a local church. They were encouraged to hear how they might be more involved in Missions opportunities.

We are also here visiting our good friends Phil and Jeannie Teel. We met in Juneau, Alaska in 1980 and have kept in contact. Phil is a welder, now retired, but keeps an active shop to do things in. So Kent had a big project and they are both tackling it.

The project it to take the back of our truck and re-configure it to accommodate our new car.. It is a Smart Car and only 8 foot 4″ long. So it can work it out. So this is a BIG project. More about that next blog as it is still in the works. Come back to see it. OK?

Here is our BIG TRUCK and little car.

That is about all we have been doing these past several weeks. I (Jan) also got 2 boils on her ear canal and so that is why this blog is so late…I am starting to feel better finally. Yeah! I can hear again!!!!

Love, Jan for the Roaming Reimers

    Looks like a beautiful Easter celebration with family. Glad to hear you are feeling better Jan. I have not heard of anyone getting a boil in their ear canal.

      Yeah, even our daughter-in-law who works with a dermatologist said it is rare! I actually had two and one is almost gone but one is just starting to heal. We did have a wonderful time with our family. I love your blog posts and am always glad to get them.

    Good to hear about your travels. We are on the road back to Minnesota. We are in Logan NM for the night. We saw a unit just like yours with a smart car on the semi. Their license plate was from Ontario Canada. Safe travels.

    • RoamingReimers Says:

      Wow, Audrey that is something to see a semi doing what Kent is working on. Neat! Stay safe on the roads and enjoy your family once you are home. Kent is in the midst of this project and it is coming along. Thanks for thinking of us!
