We enjoyed a quick visit June 28 from Carey and Susan Abbett who are on furlough from their ministry in France. Susan and Julia have been close friends since about 1996. This was Abigail's first time to meet her "Aunt Susan and Uncle Carey." Next time she hopes they'll bring their three children!
For many years, we've spent most Sunday afternoons with Jennie Lue and we've shared those lunches with Andy and Erika for the last six years (since before any of us were married!). These pictures are from our last Sunday together before the Merkles moved to Illinois for Andy to assist in pastoring a church. We miss them greatly and pray often for God's blessing on them. Abigail keeps hoping that Emmalein and "Baby Celia" and their parents will show up for Sunday dinner with Jennie Lue.
