Sad good-byes and Joyous Celebrations

Last weekend we said goodbye to a sweet young lady.  We have gotten to know Bruna over the past two years and are so thankful for her sweet spirit and love for the Lord.   From the moment we met her she was willing to help out in any area.  She planned games with the children, cleaned the church, shared the gospel with people on the street, played the keyboard and more.  At the beginning of the year she started helping me with Children's church on Sunday nights, which was a huge blessing! So on her last night with us, we held a little going away party for her... and we took lots of pictures!

You might be wondering why she is leaving.  Well, now you know!  Last Saturday she and Jonathan were marreid.  He lives 12 hours from here and so although it was a joyous celebration,  it led to a sad good-bye.  We are so thankful that God is sovereign and we know that it is His timing that she go.  We also know that she will be a big blessing to the little church plant there in the town where they will be living.
