Farewell to the Strasslers

Thomas and Ruth Strassler have been EBC missionaries in PNG for a number of years now. I have had the pleasure of teaching their children in PE for the past 2+ years. Joas, Remo, and Elena are not only good students, but good athletes and fun to have in PE. There time in PNG has come to a close and now they will transition back to life in Switzerland, for the kids that means school in German, not something they are use to. Joas has been attending a boarding school here in PNG, for the past 1+ yr, to help with that transition, while Remo and Elena have been in our MK school. At the end of our Christmas Lotu we prayed for them as we said goodbye. They will be missed.
