The VandenBos family of Lynden, WA, served at the Baja Mission. Steve, as our builder and Sherry, as our piano teacher and tutor. The VandenBos’ were strongly led to adopt Ketta. The following is their letter:
“Dear Chuck and Charla,
We are sending you a video of Ketta’s senior violin recital. We hope this is a reminder to you that one of ‘Charla’s Children’ has been given a second chance at life. Praise God! We have seen God’s hand on Ketta’s life since she arrived at ‘our’ orphanage. We thank you for listening to God when He gave you the vision of the field ripe for harvest. Thank you Chuck and Charla! Ketta has been the biggest, most unexpected blessing in our life.
Now we are excited to see where God leads Ketta next. We are SO PROUD of her. To God be the Glory.”
Nancy Benning represented FFHM at Ketta’s graduation and at her violin recital. Ketta enjoys many activities including running on the cross country team, playing tennis, volunteering in the junior high youth group and church ushering. Ketta will attend Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, AZ , majoring in accounting.
