Luke and Dawn Mann come for a visit

Saturday afternoon long-awaited guests arrived at the Haley’s. John and Amy had just moved into their new home in Rock Hill and welcomed the Mann’s from Vermont, Connecticut, Thailand, Italy and Minnesota. I say it in this way because they have had no real resting place for nearly twenty years or more and have pretty much lived wherever and however they can for the sake of the gospel. Luke and Dawn finally gave up on getting official visas to Italy and came home until they can figure out a new strategy. During this period Luke developed some rather serious health issues and they have spent the year trying to figure it all out and find a cure. Turns out it is more like Lyme Disease than anything else but they have no clear diagnosis or remedy. At any rate, Luke says he is feeling better for the time being and they are attempting to figure out their next step for ministry in Italy. You can read more about them with lots of pictures by going here  and then scrolling back on the blog entries to Citta di Castello. Anyhow it was all rather good to see them again and we celebrated by making some risotto, salmon, Caesar salad and apple crisp. They are off now to the northeast to visit old friends, supporters and church family.
