Youth and Enthusiasm and Adventure!

While I am posting photographs to go with prior entries, I want to be sure to post this one of Everdene and Garrett DeJong....

This photo was taken to celebrate their wedding on July 1, 1925, which means that it was only about a year later that they set sail towards the end of August, 1926, for their first posting as Dutch Reformed missionaries in the Arabia Mission. (In an earlier post, I copied the text of a letter that Everdene wrote to her friends back in Milwaukee, telling of some their adventures on their trip over to Kuwait, as well as during the first few months they were there.) It is amazing to me how young Everdene and Garry were when they undertook this huge adventure!
