The guest speaker was actually the senior Pastor's wife, Jana. She spoke about growing up with her family in Portugal. Missionary work has woven Jana in to the person she is today. She shared her deep passion for spreading the word and work of Jesus Christ into other countries where His name is unknown. It was a wonderful presentation and we had a lovely turnout of guests.
Saturday afternoon, our friends from back home came up to spend the evening and night. Joe and Allison had left their children with Joe's parents. Allison and I went to see the musical RENT at the PAC in Appleton. It was my second time seeing it, and her third. Two of the original Broadway actors from the 1996 company of RENT, Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal, were touring with this company... we were so happy and lucky to catch this unique performance with two of the actors that made it famous. Allison and I grabbed a few martinis after the show and just had a great time catching up (without children and NOT over emails).Wow! I think that about does it. My heart has been heavy all day today, following MckMama on twitter. Can our God be any greater?? My thoughts of rejoicing are with the Mckinney family and the rest of the world as we celebrate the wonderful news of a successful ablation today. Stellan's AV node was NOT damaged (so no need for a pacemaker at this time) thanks to the wisdom of a specialist who advised a risk (but ultimately affective) alternative routine to the percise location in little Stellan's heart. No SVT! Praise Him!
