After finishing my term as an officer in the US Army at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland, I decided to visit my grandparents in Florida. On the way home to St. Louis I stopped to visit a friend, Wayne, in Corinth,
Mississippi. Wayne invited me to go with him to Bemis, Tennessee to attend a
youth service where his girlfriend lived. That evening it was Jane's turn to
speak and after the service I introduced myself. After many trips from St.
Louis to Bemis we were engaged. Together we went to the Apostolic Bible
Institute in St. Paul, Minnesota to prepare further for the work of the Lord. With permission we married during the Christmas holidays with our pastors W. M. Greer and Oliver Spencer officiating..
For a while we had a group called Big Sisters-Little Sisters in the church in
Bemis, Tennessee. Our project was to help support a Bible school student in India and one Saturday while passing flyers for a paint store, one of the
girls revealed she had just found out that "there is a new guy in town!" Of
course we all wanted to see him. We drove to the ball field where the guys
were playing football. When I saw him I knew I wanted to meet
Arlo, but I wasn't sure how to bring it about. In fact, no one even knew how to say his
name correctly! Our youth group took turns speaking at the youth service, and
that Saturday night it was my turn. I had prepared a simple "chalk talk" and
after the service Arlo came to me, introduced himself, and commented about
the lesson. I've always said he gave me pointers to improve the chalk
drawing but he says he doesn't remember doing that. I was so pleased to meet
him and have an opportunity to talk together that I didn't mind the
suggestions. It's been many years since we married,
and now we share suggestions with each other to improve our teaching.
