Settled in Mesa

December 31, 2016

We have been here in Mesa, AZ for a little over a month  now. We are in a new location in our RV park and it is where we see a lot of people often walking by. We are trying to get to know more people and I ( Jan) am more involved in classes etc here in our little community. I am part of an aerobics swimming class and on the bowling league from our park. We occasionally go to the afternoon concerts held here too.

Because Kent still is busy working for the mission, he misses a lot of this but does get involved when he can. We feel this is our community to make an impact in, and are trying to do that.

We also got busy decorating for Christmas. I have a small Christmas tree and some outside decorations. Some dear friends sent us a real evergreen wreath which is a real treat for us.

We pray that as you prepare for Christmas and have parties etc that you will have opportunities to share why you have a “Reason for this season.” We are so blessed and have the freedom to share and to enjoy this season. I pray that you will be blessed as you celebrate Christ’s birth!

Visiting good friends!

December 4, 2016

In November we drove to San Marcos, California to visit some dear friends. We have known Ross and Denise since a few weeks after we both got married. We both married a week apart and then met at a church in NJ where we all were new to the church. Ross was in the armed forces and they were without a place to live for several months, because they waiting for base housing. We had been living in a parsonage and had a huge family room and half bath we were not even using, so after getting the church’s permission we invited Ross and Denise to move in with us. We all shared the kitchen, and full bath but with all of our working schedules we didn’t have any problems. It is funny now that none of us can remember any problems nor how long it actually was. But one thing is certain we made life time friends.

They started supporting us personally after we joined our mission and then a few years later increased that but told us the increase was to go for our retirement. We have always been so grateful for their generosity and kindness in getting us to start thinking about retirement. It is now even more appreciated!

So we got to go and see these dear friends! We have visited many times over these more than 40 years of knowing each other. They have moved a lot in the early years too. We are so grateful for friends and for their kindness to us!

We also got to see the Pacific Ocean when with them too. Fun!

Thanks Ross and Denise!

Love,
