Year of the Visitor: Part Eight

First of all, let me say that I think it is awesome that in the past 7 months we have had 8 sets of visitors; all but one of them have come from across the ocean. It's been so fabulous. And we're looking forward to many more before we leave in July!

Next on the list are our friends Bill & Kathy Anderson. They are great friends of both of our families. We've known them for years, ever since they started coming to our home church in Richmond, which was what feels like ages ago. As it typically goes with good friends, they seem like they've been around our entire lives; it's hard to imagine a time when they weren't a part of our lives!

They've both been a huge support to James and me in more ways than I can count. The trend continues as they are coming to train and instruct a large group of people, from the church we work with, to transition into teaching and leadership roles. They are perfect for that role and we're looking forward to seeing how God uses them.

I'm so glad you've enjoyed all these visits and gotten so much support from people at home. Every time I read your blog, it makes me smile. Thanks so much for being over there, out of your comfort zone, while I'm sitting mega comfortably here in Richmond. :)
