Today I attended the memorial service of a man I knew through church and work. He was born in Kansas, raised in Africa, lived, worked and taught in Hungary and California. He passed on in Florida, was buried in Ohio, and now lives in Heaven. He was a faithful servant of God, the son of missionaries who served in Rhodesia(Zimbabwe). Mark Bloom was on staff at Campus Crusade for Christ for nearly twenty years. He will be buried in the town of Twinsburg, where my wife Carol attended high school.
Most of my family still live in Ohio, and my parents are buried there.
On September 11, 2001, I was in Kenya, working on "The Jesus Film for Children" for Campus Crusade and Carol was in Florida.
Small world, no?
