This is so precious! If it's a true story, it is even more special as you shares the selfless commitment of this elderly couple. I can't help but smile picturing a 96-year old on a mission trip. But then we took an 80-something evangelist with us on our first trip to Kenya. Thanks for sharing this story. God bless! :)
This was very touching.Thank you.

Is this true? If not, I'm sure there are more than a few just like Jake in this world. If it is true, what an endearing tribute to this treasure of a man. Nicely written. Left me with a smile.
This story was a true blessing! I hope to still be able to serve the Lord as actively as Jake and Viola when I'm their age!

I love the title of this, and Jake's realistic accent. A very charming story.
A story of a true visionary couple! Nicely told; great dialect. :-)

WONDERFUL job with the dialect, and what a marvelous retelling! You truly made these people come alive. I adore that this is a true story - what a blessing this couple is!
