Saying good-bye and may the Lord bless...

About two years ago God blessed us with some special friends...
One Sunday morning an American family showed up at our church...we had them over for lunch and that was the beginning of a special friendship.
Their two sons were a special blessing to Daniel and really all 3 of my kids.  
 Raquel invited the kids over often and once I think she had all three of them spend the night!  They lived on a little piece of property about an hour south of us.  It was a great place to shot bow and arrows, play in the pool, or just play video games together.  We celebrated a couple of  birthdays together, doing American cook-outs with hamburgers,Doritos, dip and  chocolate chip cookie cake!
 I enjoyed all my talks with Raquel who was a real kindred-spirit.  Trading recipe ideas like how to make pumpkin spice coffee creamer and sour cream... As well as sharing burdens and praying together.  Raquel came and participated in our ladies retreat and was a great evangelist among the other hotel guests!
Thursday we met this family for lunch at a mall for one last outing before they head back to the states.  We are so thankful for our time together, for their example of a passion for souls, for their generous love which reflects the love Christ so generously poured out on us.

Good-bye and may the Lord bless you!
