Then and Now

A blast from the past – I had sent this around a while ago, but am posting it here to give you a chuckle:

Some things change and some things stay the same. In the 60’s, during our Peace Corps service, Fr. John taught in a University in the city of Rio de Janeiro. I taught sewing and pattern drafting in two vocational schools. Forty-six years later, in Guatemala, Fr. John will still be involved in higher education, but this time in a seminary, training future priests. I will still be teaching sewing, but this time it will be the sewing of vestments and other ecclesiastical necessities.

What has remained constant is our love for you and our gratitude for your love and support of us during these many years. Without the prayers and nurture of our family and friends, we would be unable to accomplish anything in life. We humbly ask that you continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers so that we may meet the challenge that God has laid before us. As long as God gives us strength, we will continue to answer His call to service.
