Allow me a dream: I would LOVE to be able to have a huge MTF member meet! Bring all ye tractors, trucks, chain saws, boats, guns, and other fun things and just show and tell!! Wouldn't that be a sho 'nuff hoot?!?
Not a dream Jim! You make it happen. I'm sure there are many members in your area who would like to have a get-together. We did it up here last year and a good time was had by all. We didn't bring tractors but set up during a tractor swap meet and pull. We are doing it again next month. You can start a thread to see if there is any interest.
AP, hmmm, maybe we could arrange a coffee meeting in my neck o' the woods.
Canary, our work is and has been in Japan. But I've been about everywhere, all over Asia, Europe (that pic is of me in Spain, and those flowers too), and Kenya one time. But Japan has been home a long time. So I'm really like old Rip van Winkle when it comes to America, even though I am one!
Congrats Jim on being MOM for May. Thanks for your service to our country and your service in the missionary field.
I'm sure it frequently seems like you are alone in your work and the need is great.
I believe I know something of your position. Our daughter is a missionary, serving overseas since 1999. We try to visit her yearly for a few weeks to visit and assist her and her family in their outreach activities.
Many Blessings to you!!
