Day 313: Don and Donna

13 Feb

Yesterday I was interviewed by Channel 10KTVL News about my pie project.  A nice young lady named Caitlin came to the house and spent about fifteen minutes asking me questions and taking photos.
We saw the results of this interview at 6PM last night. It was just about a minute long and fairly accurate.  A few hours later I received an email from a woman I have never met named McKenzie asking me to consider making a pie for her grandparents “the sweetest people she knows.”
This morning McKenzie and I exchanged a few more emails and I made her grandparents a lemon pie because it was their favorite flavor.
Late this afternoon I knocked on the door of a home in Phoenix, OR.  A beautiful woman named Donna answered the door and I asked of I could come in for a moment. Once inside, I met her husband, Don.  We talked for a while because I wanted to learn more about them and it seems that they wanted to know more about my pie story.
During the course of our conversation we found that we had some things in common – Ashland, San Francisco, the Firehouse Five,  and our friends the Delsman’s. Threads that united us that we most likely wouldn’t have discovered but for this project.
Tonight I give thanks for the gift of this amazing journey and all of the people I have met along the way.

    Keep making those great pies. I know this older couple from my church who would really appreciate one of your pies. Lorene is kind and generous in taking time to tell me about Jesus through studying the Bible at my home. If you need to reach me, calling me would be better. My name is Christina and my number is 530-756-0254. Take care.
