...and Kendra and I went :)
Kendra drove 50 minutes south, and I drove 45 minutes north,
and we wound up at the Potteigers'. We joined them for a church picnic,
complete with games and enough food to feed a major work crew.
These two have a special place in my heart. After serving in ministry-- as teenagers on Navajo land in New Mexico, and as a couple in multiple pastorates scattered throughout Pennsylvania, plus a handful of years in Romania, and also with a church in Alabama-- the Potteigers gave five years of dedicated service to our small congregation at Bethel in Michigan.
In 2010, they moved back to the hills of Pennsylvania, which is right where I found them on Saturday, just up the road from a place accurately named, "Pleasant Valley."
