“What comes around, goes around.” This is truer than we sometimes want to admit. In this case, its more of the world really is very small.
Many of you know that before becoming a missionary, I worked for DHL Worldwide Express in Tempe, Arizona for nearly ten years. Ironically this year, I spent Thanksgiving with some old and new friends from DHL here in Bonn.
While at Tempe, I worked with Lyle Fawcett and Curtis Meyer. Lyle transferred to England in 2000 and just recently moved to Bonn via Brussels. Curtis and his family recently transferred to Bonn in July.
Curtis’ wife Kim, hosted this “Bachelor’s Thanksgiving” which included meeting a couple more DHL people, Brian Phillips and Rick Singer also from DHL Bonn.
The Meyer’s kids, Alexa, 15, Curtis Jr., 11, and Brittney, 10, provided the “entertainment” for the evening along with a lot of willing help from the adults. It didn’t take much motivation to get into an endless night of laughter. It was great fun to see old friends and share this special American holiday with them.
Thanks Kim for putting up with all these rowdy guys and kids. I hope everyone had half the fun I did this year.
