This has been a wonderful whirlwind week-end in Oregon/Washington, seeing family and friends.
So we finished out Sunday evening with one more set of dear people!
Angela was in Dave's and my youth group in Karlruhe, Germany back in 1987/88 when we were serving with Malachi Ministries! She finished university in Germany and then came to Portland at our recommendation to attend Multnomah Bible School (today, University). And she's still here today!
We laughed tonight saying how old we felt when she was in our youth group, when in reality the age span wasn't that great. She just celebrated her 50th birthday! With Dave and I both 58, there's really not that much age difference between us! But it felt like a lot more back in those youth group days. We have loved Angela for a long time, so it was delightful to see her this evening.
Dave had already spent time with his brother, Steve, this week-end, but I hadn't gotten to see him!
So we popped over to his place after being out with Angela and Tony, and enjoyed an hour with him too!
There are many others in the Portland/Vancouver area who we didn't get to see on this trip. But we'll be back another time and hope to see more family and friends then.
