My Proudest Spot

I had two gentlemen take me out for breakfast today. I joked with them that because their wives had other plans they had to find some lady to go out with! It was a joke. The big brother (the little one) is a friend from good old Florida times and somebody I do translations for. He has the same passion for working with children as I do. The little brother (the big one) is my former real estate guy (the one that drove my moving truck when I went to Fort Gibson and then worked on selling my house but it didn’t work).

We had delicious sandwiches at Panera and then they took me to Staples so I could get a new ink cartridge. Back home again I had to show them my proudest spot. And here I am showing it to you. It’s the map showing the different countries I have reached with my stories and teaching materials for children.

I’ve had a tough week, battling an upper respiratory congestion and having an even bigger battle with my Internet provider. After some days without service, when I finally got it back on again, and I had wireless service installed, something has been going mighty wrong. Just to get through and finally talk to a live person is an ordeal of its own. There is a blessing with all this new technology but at times it almost feels like a curse. Life was so much easier back in the “typewriter” days. But even so  I’m not willing to give up the hassles of modern day.

I’ve had three different service people come out this week. How many more will it take until I’m back to normal again? In the meantime, let me show you my proudest spot.

I hope my world this coming week will be a little more hassle-free! But what a blessing it is to reach the world from my little spot on the globe. The greatest blessing? That I reached YOU!


About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
