"Good News From a Far Country" 3/11/07

"As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country." (Proverbs 25:25) Our good news this week was in the form of a visit from Jasmin Ibrahimovic and his beautiful wife Tomislava from Zagreb, Croatia. Jasmin arrived in the England Bristol Mission in 1998 as a convert to the LDS Church of one year, the only member in his family. He was an awesome missionary and served as an Assistant to the President before his mission ended, he was very close to both of us. He returned home to serve as a counselor in the District Presidency and CES Country Coordinator. He married Tomislava in 2003. After working for a computer and internet company for several years he now works for TAHITIAN NONIĀ® Juice International. He loves his job and the company. He is in the U. S. for a convention next week. It was so great to see him again and to meet his sweetheart. The last time we saw Jasmin was in Rome in 2001, he and Sister Jogna Prat took the train down to meet us and see the sights with Gloria while Tim worked doing Italian dubbing of Church films.
We also had a couple of other Former missionaries stop by to visit. In the photo, right to left: Tomislava and Jasmin Ibrahimovic, Kate Lyon (now living in Bend, OR), Angie (formerly Thorup) and Bruce LeBaron and their son Jonathan. Jasmin, Kate and Angie were great missionaries and are our great friends still. They all consider Joseph their "little brother". He loved to tease them in England and still does.
