This is Christina Scheck, from Germany. We had just met her a few minutes ago, but felt like we knew her for much longer. She has two brothers, Heiko and Jens, who came to Micronesia a few years ago as volunteers for our ministry there. When I visited Germany in 2002, Heiko and Jens toured me around their village, Ulm, and we enjoyed great fellowship, even though a German-English dictionary was necessary for much of the time.
Christina, or Ina, as she likes to be called, was also in the States volunteering to do ministry in a local church about three hours drive away. Even though we only spent little time together, our bond in the Spirit was instant.
