A French Afternoon
Rev. Pierre Ledent and his wife Lilia and their four children (l to r) Samuel, Manina, Daniel and Philippe visited us this afternoon for a long lunch into the evening. Pierre is a chaplain with the French Navy stationed in Taihiti. He was the pastor of the little village we stay in when we go to France. From our first visit to France, they welcomed us into their lives, inviting me to preach, Liz to play her flute during worship, and join the church men to play petanque on all-church suppers. Lilia is Philipino/American with family in Los Angeles. It made for a wonderful afternoon of long eating and catching up with family friends spread around the world. We are rich with friends!
