Catching up with friends

from Tim

While Martha has been hanging out in Papua New Guinea, I’ve been spending a few days near Melbourne, Australia. I’m here getting acquainted with colleagues in partner organizations here. And I’ve also had opportunity to catch up with some friends I haven’t seen in a while.

This past weekend I spent some time with Gerry and Melinda Beimers. Gerry was the director of our work in the Solomon Islands when we first went there back in 1998. And Martha and I had taught their three oldest daughters when we were all in Papua New Guinea back in the early 90s. So it was fun to see them again and catch up.

We had a nice time together, not only reconnecting, but getting a chance to see of the the beautiful countryside outside of Melbourne.

Thanks Gerry and Melinda for a nice weekend.
