Good Friends, Good Fellowship, Great God

Mid September we were able to share the experience of crossing the boarder into Canada with our children. It was their first time leaving America and even though it wasn't that far out of the country it was a big deal for them. Kent said, "we get to use our passports for the first time!" and we practiced asking questions of him that the boarder patrol might be asking. He took the job very seriously but when it came time to cross over they never even asked him anything.
It was an exciting trip for them and they kept asking, "is this what it will be like in Cameroon?" :)
For Drew and I it turned out to be a wonderful blessing. The Dawn Valley Church Family were wonderful and such an encouragement. It was great to be able to spend some time with them. Seth and Heidi Wetherald put us up for the night and after a delicious Sunday dinner we sat around talking and enjoying the company. It is one of those times were you just thank God for the blessing of good friends that we are able to connect with.
I believe God cares very much about our relationships. He knows the power and strength that is found in true friendship and he blesses our lives with them to keep us encouraged and reminded that God's people everywhere.
