Making acquaintences

Last Wednesday Mark had an appointment for a massage by a young woman Rose had told us about.  The young woman’s name is Amy and her mother is Kris.  Kris runs a B&B near Moon Lake, about fifteen miles west of Tok.  Mark had a wonderful massage and said that I would get one as soon as I am well.

This morning we went to my church, Chapel of the North, and the second person we saw when we walked in the door was Amy!  As we entered the sanctuary, Mark said, “There’s her mother, Kris!”

After the service, unbeknownst to us, the church was having a potluck.  We hadn’t brought any food and were going to leave, but the pastor invited us to stay and eat with them.  We put our things at an empty table near the back, and after we had our food and sat down, Amy and Kris came to join us.

Amy had spoken in church about going to a Bible school in Germany last year.  She talked about joining a drama team in school and at first there was no accord between them.  By the end of the year they were like family.  I told her about my reading of Clement’s first epistle to the Corinthians and how he said that when there is discord between Christians, it blasphemes the name of the Lord.  She agreed and said that God brought about a miracle in helping the drama team learn to love each other and pray for each other.

Kris is interesting too.  She is from Germany and the school that Amy went to there is near Kris’s parents’ home.  I asked where that is and she said that it’s the part near the Swiss Alps and the Black Forest.  She said it’s beautiful there.

I made an appointment with Amy for a massage tomorrow evening (Monday).  I’m looking forward to it!
