In 1999 I moved to Matamoros, Mexico for the summer to work with Adventures in Missions. I lived in a house with 14 other women. They were the Mexico interns. I missed my good friend Kelly’s wedding to be with them throughout orientation . . . but one of them missed orientation all together. I was doubtful of her commitment and her ability, she was only 18 years old and was late because she was at her High School Graduation.
But from the moment I met her, I adored her. She is and was one of the most capable and beautiful women I know. Allow me to introduce you to Janeen.
Janeen is celebrating 30 this week. She was born in 1980. We celebrate the big decades together.
And we are now celebrating over a decade of friendship. Here we are in 2000, once again in Mexico when she came to visit me.
Over the years we have connected in a number of different places . . . Georgia, Texas, New York, Boston . . .
Here she is with Ben at one of my favorite places, Halibut Point.
And she came to see us and stay with us . . . so good to reconnect . . .
Cole was enamored, and so am I. Thank you, Janeen for celebrating this decade with me!
