God has richly blessed us with literally thousands of new friends over the last couple of years. Many of you have become part of our family, especially those who stay for extended periods of time. Kristy, one of our friends from Immanuel Baptist Church in Louisville KY, has become like a little sister to me. She has served with us in Lakeshore for the past five months. Her passion for the ministry, heart of mercy, her contagious smile, and her tireless work ethic has blessed us beyond words. From working in the office, to organizing the warehouse, to working with the teams, to running errands, to tiling Mrs. Gillum’s bathroom this week, to introducing everyone to the infamous “mixed frosties;” she exemplifies her gift of encouragement. Her tour of duty ends today. Her scheduled flight back to Louisville KY lifts off any minute. Kristy, we will miss you and we look forward to your return, or whatever God has in store for you. May God continue to bless you and to richly bless others through you.
