We have really been looking forward to the founder's dinner. After reading the book "Prisoner of Hope" written by founder Jessie Miller, we just wanted to meet these missionaries who have paved the way for us.
MaryEtta Reynolds hosted the dinner in her home. She and her husband are such godly people and they truly live out their faith. I know that when we need some wisdom out on the field, they are just one phone call away. We have both really gotten to love this couple.
We had a sweet time together all these founders went around the room sharing of God's goodness and faithfulness. They shared about soldiers who now some 30 years later are still walking with the Lord. They told of times when God blessed them beyond measure. They spoke of the hard days, the funny days, but mostly they encouraged us. It was beautiful. Tom and Dottie Hash lead us in some wonderful hymns to close out the evening.
