Our guest speakers this year are Phil and Diana Lindberg. Phil has spent the majority of his life in church leadership and service, teaching Sunday school for all ages, leading worship, and leading home groups and Bible studies. Number five of seven children, Phil grew up in a busy house. His parents were missionaries at the China Inland Mission, started by Hudson Taylor, and was born in Taiwan. His father was a pastor, counselor, and college professor, with a Masters of Divinity and a PhD in Education. Wanting to see the world, Phil joined the Navy out of high school and spent the next seven years traveling throughout Asia and the Far East when he wasn’t serving on a battleship.
His love of airplanes and flight led him to work for Boeing for a few decades, helping develop and test the Boeing 777, including testing with flight simulators. With his background in computer tech and engineering, he offers a unique outlook on the Bible and how it applies to us in every aspect of our lives. Phil and Diana have also been involved with YWAM and, over a period five visits to the Ukraine, did VBS work in outlying villages, as well as taught a week-long DTS class.
Diana grew up the Midwest, graduated with a degree in teaching and met Phil in the seventies in California, while Phil was in the Navy. After marrying, they were stationed in Yokahama, Japan for several years before moving to Oak Harbor, Washington. They have lived on both the west coast and east side of Washington and are currently in Greenacres, which is on the outskirts of Spokane. She is a retired teacher and has taught Sunday School the majority of her life. Together they raised and homeschooled two daughters, Becky and Sarah, who are both married.
Diana has spent the last seven years caring for her mother, in their home. She went to be with the Lord in May of this year at 97 years old. Grandparenting is proving to be a delight with six adorable granddaughters, five of which are under five years of age. Their current project is helping Sarah and Pat build an addition to their home.
Phil is an avid reader, loves jigsaw puzzles and jokes involving a good pun. Diana loves to sew, always enjoys a delicious latte and spent 11 years studying ballet.
On Friday night and Saturday morning we'll gather in cozy Good Shepherd Lodge. Our dress-up banquet is held in the Main Lodge and on Sunday morning we'll make our way up to the Prayer Chapel for our final time together and the renewal of our marriage vows. Lodging will be provided in Good Shepherd, Heritage and the Main Lodge. Come snuggle up with the love of your life and grow together through Christian fellowship and looking deeply into God's idea for marriage through His Word.
