Time with friends

Last week I had the opportunity to spend some time with three wonderful women. We had such a good time together that we hardly noticed the SIX hourse went by! From left to right: Anna Stepanian, Christina Stanton, me and Laurel Jenkins.

A few weeks ago I introduced you to Christina. She is back from Slovenia and was spending some time in the Portland area. Anna also lived and worked with Josiah Venture in Slovenia - in fact she and Christina were roommates over there for 4 1/2 years. She moved home at the end of the summer and just recently moved to the Portland area. You might recognize Laurel from our photos taken in Colorado. She and her husband were at the language training we went to there.

I first met all three of these ladies while they were students at Multnomah. They were all RA's while I worked as a Residence Director there. Anna and Laurel were both Head RA's and Christina served as a Head RA the year after I left Multnomah. So, we go way back and have spent a lot of time together over the years. So many stories I could tell. :-) While I'm sad that Anna and Christina won't be in Slovenia when we go over, I'm so excited for the doors that the Lord is opening for them here.

I thought about posting some photos from long ago . . . but unfortunately, those were the days before I owned a digital camera and most of my photos are in storage. Might have to save that post for another day. :-)
