1969 was a very significant year in US history: the Viet Nam War was raging, college campuses were the scene of many protests and shut-downs, we landed on the moon for the first time and Woodstock became a legend. It was also the year I graduated from Princeton, Jeannie and I got married and I began seminary and Christian ministry.
It’s fifty years later and time for us to celebrate these events, so
we will be taking some time off this summer to do so, beginning with my Princeton 50th Class Reunion, May 30 to June 2 in Princeton, New Jersey. Please pray that Jeannie and I and our Christian classmates will have open opportunities to tell of the wonderful things Jesus has done in our lives over the last 50 years.
We will then have a reunion with folks from our youth group we pastored at our first church in Pennsylvania. (You know you’re getting old when the members of your former youth group are all near retirement age and have grandchildren!)
In July, we will have a family gathering in Utah to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Our actual wedding day was August 16, but we will be back
in Hungary then. Jeannie and I rejoice in our 50 very blessed years together. It’s been awesome.
We will head back to Europe July 30th after fulfilling a promise to our granddaughter, Moxie, to be at her 7 birthday party on July 28.
