50 years of marriage is definitely an accomplishment!  And one that deserves a huge celebration!  Scott’s parents, Floyd and Arliss Freeman celebrated 50 years of marriage this year.  Their anniversary was actually in January, but the celebration was held in April… especially so we could be there!  We couldn’t miss it for the world.  Staight

 after we sent our first children at risk team to Colombia, we boarded a plane ourselves and headed for California for the big fiesta.  Over 300 people attended and guests traveled from far and near.   It was such a special event.  Specific people shared how Floyd and Arliss have touched their lives, several sang or performed in their honor, including all three of her sons. Scott kicked the event off sharing how his mom and dad prayed for him in faith all through his years on drugs and he sang a special song of thanks to them.  By the end the microphone was opening up and people were sharing funny stories and laughing.  A special video slideshow showed them through the years.  It was amazing to see the fruit from the lives of two people committed to God, living for Him, and the incredible impact they have made on this world.
