HA Chronicle #4 - Our First and Only District Tour for 2011

Usually we have about 3 or 4 district tours during our home assignments, but this time we only have one.  We were scheduled to speak on the Pittsburgh District for seven days (twice on Sundays and every night of the week), April 10-17.  We had spoken on this district several furloughs ago, so we were excited about returning.  Jean Brake has been the district NMI deputation coordinator for many years and she does a great job!  Jean and her husband, Frank, invited us to stay at their lovely home near Confluence for the first 3 days of the tour.  One of the days they took us around to see some of the interesting sites:

the place where the UA flight #93 crashed on September 11, 2001,

and Fort Necessity in Maryland constructed by George Washington before he was president.

We enjoyed all the people that we met and enjoyed some fabulous potluck dinners too.  One of the churches had their children present a special bell choir.  Sylvia thought this would be a great idea for the kids in Vanuatu!
We are always delighted to be able to spend some time with missionary friends as we are traveling.  We were pleased to stay in Dale and Pat Stotler's home who were missionaries in Lesotho.  We also enjoyed lunch with our PNG missionary colleague, Carolyn Myatt.
This was a wonderful beginning for the next 3 months of speaking across America!
