Special Award Ira

Ira will be leaving Okinawa this Sunday and then Irma and Izak will be leaving Wednesday. They are heading back to California. Ira's tour of duty on Okinawa has come to an end. We are really going to miss this family. We are blessed that Ina and Iza (in Korea) will be staying until the end of the year. But before Ira finished up on base, he was given a special award from the Navy. It was given in recognition of his great service while on island. Personally I have seen Ira go way beyond the call of duty and serve his country whole heartily. He did things that I know others would not have made time to do. Thank you Ira for being such a great witness here on the island. A wonderful witness for Jesus Christ. We are going to miss you bro, we love you so much.

Awwwww...
Wish the three Amargos could stay in Oki for awhile, at least until next year! :) But God will bless your hometown now as He's blessed Oki for a good while.
Thanks so much for your faithfulness. Encouragement. Brother/sisterhood. Sweet Christ-likeness to all of us.

Looking forward to seeing you in CONUS sometime!
