One of the best parts of my job is that I get to be intentional about seeing people. Sometimes this is just friends that I haven’t spent time with in a couple months, sometimes it is friends who I haven’t seen in a couple years and sometimes it is even friends who I haven’t seen for a lot longer.
Earlier this week I got the chance to reconnect with my friends Dave and Debbie. Dave was my highschool youth pastor and I remember when his youngest child was born. That same child is now graduated from highschool. It was great to share with them what God is doing and how he’s moving me towards Australia.
Next week I will be traveling up through Oregon, Washington, all the way to Vancouver, Canada. Along the way I will be connecting with churches and reconnecting with friends and family. I’m looking forward to more visits like the one with Dave and Debbie. It’s amazing how we can be encouraged by sharing how God has been faithful in our lives. More about my northwest trip to come!
