Well, this is the first time I'm posting to my blog! We had a big weekend with a family reunion, the Franz-Goossen families! There were over 200 people there, including all our children and grandchildren. We have 5 grand-daughters, and 3 grand-sons. We had so much fun!
It was so neat seeing so many different family members. We have such a neat family, and such a rich heritage. Both sets of Vern's grandparents were dedicated Christians, and so many of their family are too!
It is such a blessing to hear about Grandma's prayer to raise up workers for God's kingdom, and then to meet all the missionaries and pastors, as well as regular "church" workers in the family. The sun doesn't set on the family name. We have workers around the world!
Next time, in three years, it will be our turn to host the gathering. The kids are already excited about it, and I hope the enthusiasm will continue until we have a wonderful gathering planned.
