Year 3, Day # 273 - Mark Oliver

This afternoon Sister Edna and I stopped in at the Amish & Mennonite Information Center I met up with Mark Oliver. The first time we had met was in the mid-1980's or so. He was a 16 year skinny lad who came to visit Aylmer Ontario because he wanted to join the Amish. And here he is 30 years later, living in Holmes County with his wife and children. We spent over an hour catching up, well no, we never did catch up for we just started telling each other about our journey  from where we were to where we are now. I am amazed is about all I can say.
