Have you misplaced something?

Two weeks ago I mentioned my propensity for misplacing items like my car keys, glasses, wallet, and phone.

Three Mystery Men

Dear Church Family, Mystery Man #1 Yesterday I walked around a corner in the Cupertino Community Center and there I stood, face to face, with a mystery man. We locked eyes. He smiled. I waved “hello” and then walked to a bench to write a text message. Then “Johnson” (that’s his name) ran up and…

Stars in my eyes (and ears)

Baptisms, Myanmar
