January 2012 Plattner Family Update
It’s the middle of February and I cant think of any kind of intro to our update. I typically try for a thoughtful or quippy intro but time has got the best of me. Also, it is our best intention to write meaningful content every month for our accountability to those who care and give such wonderful support. But, with no intro and poor content, we acknowledge sending this update out as a mater of discipline and not delight. So, here is our update for the month of January in its fully sorry state.
January was full. We flew back to the island on the 3rd and picked up our first team on the 7th. The team was great and we enjoyed the fellowship of our friends from Little Rock, Arkansas. The next week was a board meeting. This means lots of traveling and lots of hosting as board members fly in for the meetings. The board members flew out just as we welcomed our second team of the year. This team comes every year from Dayton, Ohio. The team did some great work in the school and with our staff. And, in a blink, our January was gone.
Our family continues to experience profound blessing. Between our fits of complaining and extreme selfishness, we stop and marvel at God’s grace on our lives. From our children’s growth, to our marriage, to our opportunities to minister, we give thanks. We have fellowshipped with some wonderful people and have been blessed by the Body of Christ. Thank you so much for your ongoing support of our family.
