Comments:

I had 3 beautiful children, was married for 22 years then got a divorce.

I turned to the Lord and He has taken me on a great journey, as a Missionary, serving Him in Russia, Romania, Ukrain, Hungery, China, Hong Kong,( smuggled bibles out of Hong Kong into Mainland China. Scary but exciting and fun!) Indonesia, Malaysia, Mozambique Africa. In Africa all the children that I worked with were in an orphanage and all had AIDS or were orphaned because their parents died of AIDS. Then India, Costa Rica and 5 years in Turkey, where I worked in an orphanage with 500 disabled and abandoned children. Had 17 that I loved on and cared for. Also started a ministry for homeless street kids.

I graduated from a bible school in Mpls MN. Antioch Christian Training School, with a degree in Ministerial Studies and was licensed as a minister in 1997 and ordained in 2001.
May 12,2013-I just returned from Jaipur India. Of all the places the Lord has ever taken me I have always wanted to return. India is not one of them! I taught a seminar at a bible college there on Praise and Worship. We also took 21 puppets for the children's bible stories in the villages. Terrible sex trade of 12 year old little girls and I saw that in action. It's a God forsaken land with 330 million gods. Bless the missionaries who are called there!
Feb.2014 Went on a wonderful mission trip to Costa Rica. The missionaries there actually live in the jungle. It was wonderful teaching 185 children! Our final day we went zip lining and no I never want to do it again!

School Story:

Soon we will be coming up to our 55th. year from graduation and our reunion. I spent last year in the hospital and nursing home and so many of you sent me wonderful cards. Some even sent me more than one. I received 177 cards. Thank you all so much for the cards and prayers!!!!!! I can't wait to see you at the reunion. Love and Blessings to you all!

THANK YOU, ALL OF YOU, WHO WERE ABLE TO COME TO THE REUNION! WE HAD A REALLY FUN TIME AND IT WAS SO WONDERFUL SEEING ALL OF YOU!
WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO PLAN ONE IN 2 YEARS. MAYBE JUST ONE NIGHT WE'LL HAVE TO SEE WHAT THE COMMITTEE WANTS TO WORK ON BUT IT WILL BE SOONER THAN 5 YEARS.
HAVE A WONDERFUL HEALTHY DAY!
WITH LOVE AND BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL!

Hi sweetie, will you please post something on the announcement page about the sun. Picnic and ask if they would respond with a yes or no. I make too many spelling mistakes and you do that so good. Thank you. I sent a notice about the reunion to Vickie, Bill and Paul.
