I was thinking what to title this entry. I started typing and that popped out. I haven't heard it in a long time...I love that song!!
Today we had some friends come up from Orem. They came with us to church and we ate and visited. It was really nice to see them. Kathleen (or Sister Eschler as I first knew her) was my companion about halfway through my mission in Bangor, N. Ireland. She was so fun to serve with. We got lost a lot, we had coins chucked at us (and not to pay us for our services!), rocks hurled, she was spat on, and more thrilling adventures. But she was a terrific companion. She was bold but kind, and has a great sense of humor. She helped me learn to plan and set goals better.
Here she is with her husband, Bret, and their 5 kids. Bret was also a missionary in the IDM (No, it didn't happen the way you're thinking), and was my District Leader in one area...we can't seem to remember which one, though! Hey, Bret, I'm thinking it was Dublin...? He was cheerful and fun, a great missionary. Together they make a great pair. It was wonderful to have their kids come over. No stress. They just blend right in with the chaos naturally occurring in our household. The kids had a blast playing. Thanks for taking the time to drive up and spend the day with us, Gundersens.
