Five-ish years ago I got a phone call out of the blue from my youth pastor Jerven, from when I was 15 in Penticton. He told me that him and his wife Sarah were expecting their first child – he had always loved my name and would I mind if they named their child Jerusha if it was a girl? I was so surprised at this blast from the past and so tickled that he had called to ask! The baby was a boy so they named him Joshua (coincidentally my parent’s choice if I had been a boy). Then almost exactly 2 years ago Sarah and Jerven had a little girl. They named her Jerusha.
Last weekend I got to hang out with little Jarusha, and the rest of the family in Stanley Park. It was so great to see Jerven again and meet his beautiful family. And so crazy to hang out with another Jerusha! As you can see in the photo above, she wasn’t quite sure what to think of me at first
My fav – she’s hilarious!This happened to be the very first time these Prairie kids have ever been to the ocean – it was a blast and everyone was soaked by the end!
