Cherise Beekman's High School Graduation. Cherise was the Saluatorian for her class of 24 kids. She also sang in a trio as part of the program.
Gary Stewart and Gary Beekman. We named our Gary after Gary Beekman, Cherise's dad! I think our Gary got some his mischieveness from his name sake.

Ed Cannon and Dr. Gene Getz Ed Cannon is one of the head hanchos at MBI. He always has a smile on his face. Gene is one of my favorite people. He and Glenn play rball from time to time here in Dallas. I enjoy Gene's godly wisdom. Everytime I see him, I always ask which scripture he has been working on. He is working on a Principles to Live By Bible.
Lou and Carol from Moody. Dr. Barberie was my Theology teacher back in the 70's. They will be going to Israel this year and traveling with the other 12 tribes of Israel buses with the Moody gang this next week. He is an excellent teacher.
Bob and Pam McCrae both teach at Moody. Pam and Glenn were in Ben Lippen boarding school together back in the 70's.

Glenn and I took up a suitcase full of 2006 Spanish World Cup tracts to give to students and faculty. Marcos and his friend loved it.

George Verwer and Tom Shaw at board meeting. George is the founder and former president of OM and also Moody grad. Tom is the former Alumni director and is currently the VP of Student Services. I've done several Alumni gatherings and College fairs with him recently
Board meetings and luncheons can be very relaxed!
Me, Lori I. and Annette Moy Lori is Michael's assistant up on the 9th floore. Annette is the Dean of Admissions. She is my cheerleader as Glenn and I take additional college courses to get our degree from Moody in a few years

George Sweeting and Ian Leitch. Dr. Sweeting was my president while as a student here from 1975 -1978

Ed Cannon grabbed Glenn's camera and took a quick shot. Normally, I do get a photo of Glenn. Here he is with our friend, Michael.

Dan and Laurie Anderson, CAM missionaries from Guatemala. Dan recieved his Masters degree today. The Andersons both meet at Moody back in the 90's and have served in Guatemala for many years. Now they are heading to Spain to work with Comibam.

Our Alumni Board meetings started this evening. I just love being around such wonderful folks. Ian and Hugo are my favorite! Ian always makes fun of me by the way I say "M-i-c-h-a-e-l" in my LONG southern draw! I quite frequently forget that Ian is not from England, but rather Scotland. Hugo sits next to me in board meetings and between these 2 guys we have lots of laughs. He introduced me to Blogging.

Moody Alumni Board meetings and Graduation

Glenn and I flew up to Chicago for Board meetings. We had hoped to fly on the 777, but they changed out aircrafts and instead we flew up on a 767. As we were boarding, we couldn't believe our eyes. Captain Don Stackpole was "dead heading" on our plane up to Chicago and then he was flying a MD80 to Atlanta. Wow, we hadn't seen him in about 2 years. We first met Don Stackpole in Bolivia back in the early 90's. Don would fly to Bolivia. Go out and witness in the city parks, then sleep. Then we would either have him over for a meal or go out to dinner. Don would do this routine several 2 or 3 times a month. Don is a believer and loved being with our family. We were able to catch up on his family and stuff. Small world. I'm glad we were able to run into him.

Tomorrow, we'll be having our Alumni Board meetings, followed by graduation on Saturday. More late.

Photos from our recent trip to Guatemala
May 5

Our trip to Guatemala was SUCESSFUL. We got so much accomplished. Glenn was able to meet our new landlord and sign a rental contract. We were able to bring down 7 pieces of luggage. Purchase some used furnishings. We lack a few large items, such as refrigerator, dryer and bed. But I feel good that we already know where we are going to live.

On Glenn and Gary's return trip, they got "stuck" in Miami and spent the night in Terminal D. They were glad to get back to Dallas the next day.

Now we are on the "home stretch", as we pack our house, find renters and move down to Guatemala. Lots of stuff to do between now and June when we hope to move.

I'll hopefully will write from time to time in my BLOG...so don't forget to come back.
