  18. I was blessed to have shared part of my journey with Don and Marj. Faithful friends who encouraged and supported a young Christian and then as missionaries and in latter years, friend. A wonderful example. Lots of ‘water in the soup’ sharing around their table. Wise and faithful servants. Sadly missed.
