Nicki and I have been planning for quite some time to take the trek over the mountains to visit the Waldrons and the Majors over Memorial Day weekend. I have been looking forward to it, and to be honest I was quite distracted from school because of my excitement!! 😀 But the time arrived and praise the Lord, the pass was open! I was so glad we didn’t have to go the long way around. It was a beautiful drive for sure.
The weekend was spent building wonderful memories. Lots of games were played (Sorry Card Revenge of course, and Phase 10), some won, some lost. Just so you know, if Maggie complains about her bruised arm, you need to know that she was a very sore winner. hahahahaha. yup…she deserved it. 🙂
One of the things I was really looking forward to was the opportunity to spend Sunday with them to see the work that’s been started. It was wonderful to see how things are being done and it was very encouraging to me. The Lord is doing wonderful things over there and I am excited to see what He will do this next year. It’s hard to believe they have been there for a year! Nicki and I sang a duet, praising the Lord and purposing to be a blessing. Later that evening the Majors came over and we ate some delicious homemade pizza and watched Josh Waldron’s picture slideshow from the Juarez outreach. The Lord really did some amazing things last week in Juarez, Mexico!!!! Continue to pray for the souls who were saved that they would be discipled.
I was very sad to leave today, but we truly had a wonderful time. The drive back was just as fun. Again, the Lord reminds me how good He is to me by giving me friends who are exactly what I need. They have hearts for the Lord and that enables true fellowship and friendship that goes beyond anything the world can ever know.
