Patrick and his future wife, Grace Go, both teach at a Christian school in Jakarta. Patrick teaches English literature. Grace teaches art. Indonesia is the most Muslim country in the world, but their school is still respected there because it is perhaps the most academic in the country. Pat and Grace get to teach the smartest children whose parents are some of the greatest leaders and most influential people in the country. These children will become the future leaders of this country. And Pat and Grace get to teach them Christianity. What a wonderful school. What a wonderful mission.
Pat met Grace in Singapore at teacher training. He said that it was love at first sight. He knew instantly that he wanted to marry this young woman. And now it is going to happen. I am so proud of them and happy for them. They plan on staying for the near future and continue to teach their wonderful students in Jakarta.
Can you think of a prettier place to have a wedding than Bali? Yes, Bali is a part of Indonesia and where we are headed. Barbie and I hope to get a little vacation while we are there. It is only a 40-hour trip to get there.
Thanks to all of you for being so loving to our family. Pray for Patrick and Grace in this new beginning.
