Art & Grace Laemmlen in Germany, 1956

German Relatives 1956 5In 1956 my parents, Art & Grace Laemmlen took a trip to visit our family members in Germany.  They’d just spent 2 years at Brook Lane Farms near Hagerstown, Maryland, where Dad was the administrator of a hospital.  As a Mennonite, he was a  conscientious objector and did his required voluntary service there.

Before returning to farm life in Reedley, Dad and Mom spent a few months traveling through Europe.  They bought a little Volkswagen and had a great time.  German Relatives 1956 4Here are a few photos from their visit to our relatives in Grossgartach, Germany.German Relatives 2.jpgGerman Relatives 1956 1German Relatives 1956 3German Relatives 1956I love looking at these photos and my parents when they were young and had their entire future before them.  And I love our German family.

    So good to see all these wonderful pictures. They look so happy. Really was really beginning to show his age in the other picture even though they are only about 8 years apart. You looked in your picture . what an amazing life you have had. In so many ways of serving. The Lord still sends me little ways to service if just look for them in my limited life style. He does know our every need.
