  1. Hi Jen,
    I am a classmate of your mom’s from nurses’ training at Miami Valley Hospital. I’m going to see her tomorrow at Dorothy Love when we have lunch with your grandparents while she is visiting Ohio. I live in Celina about 20 minutes fom Sidney. You’ve been to our house but it was when you were little. We live on Grand Lake St Marys. I think Chris was here too, but I would have to find the pictures to be sure. I enjoy seeing your blog and your little ones. My husband is Flipino, and we have a granddaughter named Sophia too. I have an email I’d like to send you so email me when you find time. XOX Jackie

  2. Dear One, Mary Brewer sent your blog to my husband and I and we enjoyed it so…much. Mary and Norm Brewer are there in Tirana too, I’m sure you know that. My husband and I are retired from the ministry after 41 years. We now travel and do some meetings. David is preaching a missionary conf. this week, Sun–Wed. We LOVE missionaries. Happy serving Him.

  3. My daughter is in an Awana program in Holly, Michigan. One of her assignments is to research a missionary. I had no idea where to start, so we tried to find a missionary who lives near us. No luck. Then, we tried to find one who shares my daughter’s name… Jadyn. We found your story. My daughter just turned five, and she is using you and your story in her assignment. She knows your name (and your daughter’s), and where you live (and where Albania is — we colored it on a map). Thank you for taking the time to share your story. It helped me help my daughter know what a missionary does. God bless you, your family, and your work.

    • Jamie,
      Thank you for your sweet note. I love how you found us… by our daughter’s names! And with the same spellings!
      I so appreciate your kind words and thank you for your prayers!
      Bless you!
