It was a good week. We got a lot accomplished in the hangar and my family got to visit last weekend for Emma’s birthday. She is 6 years old now! It was very special to spend some memorable time with her. We spent time doing one of her favorite things– swimming. The family enjoyed time together at the lake on Saturday. Emma used my hands as a diving board as I propelled her up out of the water. She loved it! On Sunday, Ben (her dad) and her grandparents were able to join us for more time at the lake. The entire weekend was fun. We went to a small train museum, ran errands and had a family meal on Sunday afternoon. It is always nice to spend time together.
As far as work in the hangar, I was able to remove a magneto, do more airplane paint stripping, participate in several annual inspections, remove and replace a couple of starters as well as a voltage generator. I am sure there was more that kept me busy but those are the things that stick out in my mind.
This coming week, I am REALLY looking forward to hosting some missionary friends that I met during my time job training in the military. I was stationed in Texas at the time while Dave and Jill were on deputation trying to promote the ministry God had called them to while seeking prayer and financial partners as well. I attended the same church that they were members of. We have remained in touch, off-and-on, since we met, 4 years ago. When I heard they were coming back to the States on furlough (from Africa), I emailed them, hoping we would have time to meet up. Lori, the Missionaire director’s wife, asked if they would be willing to speak at Missionaire and offered to host them overnight. They were happy to come and, as it turns out, I get to host them! I am excited!!! 🙂
Well, I hope you all are doing well. (Notice I didn’t say ya”ll, aren’t you proud of me?) Thank you for your continued support. It means so much! Well, stand firm, always abounding in the work of the Lord.
Continue to grow stronger in the Lord,
