First thing he says when he walks in the room --- "Did you bring any Valentinos with you?"
I knew immediately I liked this guy! We then talked about Runza and Amigos and bowl games he has gone to .... Eventually we got around to talking about his attitude toward ministry and serving people here in Grand Island and how to reach out to 18-35 year olds. Obviously first things first!
He then tells me that while in St. Louis he reads this website to keep in touch with the Huskers -- he knew who I was and many others that we shared ... LutheranHusker in Lincoln; JonCarl -- I shared the story of talking with him about a funeral they were conducting here in Grand Island and many other fun stories.
Young man is from Lincoln, his wife is from Seward. He attends Christ Lutheran in Lincoln and his wife attends St. John's in Seward. Both are UNL grads.
Biggest problem I told him he would have to deal with is that we have church on Saturday night and he would have to lead it -- while I take his tickets and go with his folks!!!
So -- what amazing interviews or stories of surprise meetings have others had with Husker Nation.
