I got to know Ron in my first “Let’s Talk” English class. I was kind of late, so when I entered the class, everyone was seated already. As I stood there awkwardly, a gentleman stood up and invited me to join his table. He was Ron, the leader of that discussion group.
I got to know more about Ron recently when a family was visiting their home. The family had just returned to the U.S. from Taiwan. The wife is Taiwanese and had worked with Ron & Shirley when they were in Taiwan. I saw many photographs from Ron & Shirley’s time there and how passionately Ron played guitar and sang.
From 1988 to 2002, Ron & Shirley lived in Taiwan helping people as English teachers and missionaries.
