Hey Mia & Mike - Look Who We Met!

video

So we head downstairs for breakfast this morning and asked another couple from our Travel Group if we could share a table with them. You know how these things go, we each asked where the other lived. Turns out they were from Illinois, from the same city that my sister and her husband live in. What a coincidence, so they ask what my sister's name is and I'm thinking, no way will they know Mia & Mike but how nice to ask...

They don't just know them - they go to church together and just went out to dinner with them last month! How cool is that!?! :)

Hey Don and Be, you know what you were telling us about how nothing on these journeys happen by chance, well, here's another example!
Got to go! Post later...

I am glad you made it safely! I love the video. Great idea! Troy and Amy are a great couple. They have been sharing their story with our church. Hopefully, Alyzabeth will have a long time friend, their son, Ty.

XOXO,
