Being so far away from family and friends, it is only natural to seek new friends where you live at the time. There are several families within our IMB family that have become great friends to me. It is a great blessing to know that you can count on them during the hard and difficult times that come with living in a “foreign” culture and land.

God blesses me with their friendship. They encourage me and teach me, stretch me and hug me when I need to be hugged. With all the traveling I have done this year, it has been difficult for me to develop deeper friendships with some. However, I know that these friends are always there for me.

You are a blessing!
