My name is Len Engel... not the famous one, the Canadian! My family and I are Christians of the Lutheran persuasion. We live in Boise, Idaho and Lancaster, California. When in Boise we attend Redeemer Lutheran Church when in California, Lutheran Church of the Master in Lancaster. (Its a long story -- I work in southern California, family home still in Boise) God has been very patient with me... I can safely say that I spent 40 years wandering in the wilderness. I was one of those infamous PK's Being raised in the "church" I had all the right words and phrases, I could sound very pious. My world imploded when I was about 40 ... all the lies caught up with me and I was forced to come clean.
Life started in Medicine Hat, Alberta in May of '46. By fall we were in Winnipeg at the Bible School/Seminary... School for Dad and a couple of Baptist churches in Saskatchewan and North Dakota we ended up in Lodi (yes, the Stuck in Lodi, Lodi) California by '58. Dad said he had about 150 sermons, so we moved every three years. I launched into adulthood from Lodi... a couple of years of college, then the Air Force (the draft years).. more college, some years as a DJ, then, WOW, 40 years in the public transportation industry. Along the way we got involved with the Internet and formed Horizon Internet Solutions -- since what we have is what He gave us our company is HIS. We do hosting for Christian organizations at no cost to the group... let us know if we can help. If you would like to know about what we are up to... horizon-internet.com or servicelearningpro.com.
I have, not so, recently entered my 6th decade, God continues to bless. A wonderful wife, four great kids, two great son-in-laws (Not good enough for the daughters, but as great as you can find anywhere!) and two fantastic grandsons!.
For those that may be interested my Mom's brother Ed and his family were at the "sem" at the same time we were... that's my cousin Sharon and I in the married students' dorm (we weren't married, duh). That photo won first prize in a local photo contest back in the winter of '48 -- that was the bad one you know :-)
