"Oh! I pray for you...."

Last Sunday we were at Brian's home church in Valparaiso, Indiana. After the service we were enjoying seeing old friends and catching up on news. As we were leaving the building, a friend introduced us to a gentleman who used to live in the Philippines. We talked to him for about 5 minutes about his experience in the Philippines and where we're living and what we're doing there. As we were saying goodbye he told us his name and asked what ours were. When we told him our names, his face changed and with a smile he said, "Oh! I pray for you!"
Overwhelming feelings of thankfulness and amazement at our incredible God filled us as we continued our discussion. As we meet people that pray for us and reconnect with those who have influenced our lives, we're overwhelmed with God's grace and provision for our lives. Thank you for your prayers - they make such a difference!

Hey guys!

Thanks for checking out my shamelessly slow-to-be-outdated blog, and for the very nice comment. Here in Cape Town, we're well, although South Africa's recent outbreak of violence has been heartbreaking to witness. Ironically, I was in Zambia and Zimbabwe at the time, enjoying the hospitality of our gracious neighbours! Justin is gorgeous - congratulations. Thank God for those Julie-genes, eh?

Come visit. Seriously. You know you want to!
