Our family is healthy and happy; Kelley (like Leslie Houston) is an MK in that she is a "Minnesota Kid."  We met in my mother's home church in southern Minnesota in the summer of 1979 - married now 29 years.  We have four children - Faith (26) is married to Jeff Sheldon and is expecting our first grandchild in October.  Joel (23) is a fire fighter for the city of Vail, Colorado, and just proposed to Jamie - they are planning a June wedding (2011).  John (20) is starting his junior year at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO studying sports medicine.  Jesse (17) is beginning his senior year of high school, and looking forward to his third year at starting fullback for the varsity football team.  After thirty years in the States I'm finally becoming a fan of the American version of this sport!  Kelley is starting her third year of teaching third grade for Cherry Hills Christian School here in Highlands Ranch (south metro Denver), CO.  I have been Director of Finance and Administration for OMF International's U.S. office for over six years now.  I love the privilege of serving missionaries, and OMF's focus on the Far East.  I also have the blessing of working with Jon Fuller, '78 who is my boss's boss at the international headquarters in Singapore.  Just enjoyed attending a reunion of the graduating years 1965 - 1978 in Estes Park, Colorado - wonderful to reconnect with staff and classmates and make new friends of "upper class men!"  My gratitude to Helen (Eyestone) Peterson.  May the Lord refresh your joy in all circumstances, every new day.
