Last weekend we visited dear friends of ours from our Beijing days. This family is so precious to us! Being with them is like getting a jolt of soul nourishment and encouragement.... we are so blessed by their friendship and example to us of loving the Lord, His Word, His people..
And we absolutely delight in these kiddos. What a joy for us that our kids can grow up close (enough) to these guys. May they have life-long friendships, packed with fun memories, and grow zealous for the Lord's glory together.
