About 6 months ago there was a community outreach day that New Life Church organized asking any and everyone interested to get involved in a way they felt it best. So i thought making food for the Ronald McDonald House would be fun and encouraging way to serve. There a met a wonderful and uplifting girl, named Lindsay, whom i thought would be great to have over for dinner and fellowship and such. So she and 2 other girls, Megan (a fellow Africa visitor) and Andrea (another easterner moved back west) came over, ate, laughed, and fellowshipped. Funny thing is they all went off to college soon after.

They are all back for break. Today we had lunch having only talked really once briefly since last semester began. I cannot describe how encouraging it is for God to provide these ladies into my life. We don't really know each other hardly at all, but in my time with them I will always remember that God would have us share our lives. Though God would not ask of all relationships the same, being a body of Christ means we are one family with One Father that has provided us with many brothers and sisters as we walk through this thing called life.

God is good. He is so good. He doesn't have to give so freely, but He does.

See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children
of God; and such we are.
-1 John 3:1a

Hola Sistah,
nice to realize/remember that God does provide "family" wherever we go.
hope you're doing well,
