During the very quick trip back to California I was able to spend a couple of meals with some friends. Unfortunately I was unable to see and meet with every friend in the area. One of my oldest friend’s Ken and his wife Sherrie happened to be visiting my parents at the same time I did. It was great to be able to have breakfast with Ken and my Dad.
I was also able to have dinner and catch up with two dear friends of mine. Matt and Josh are also old friends of mine. It was great to have a meal with them and their family one evening. I am so thankful to have faithful friends who support me.
No missionary is an island unto themselves. I was reminded of this during my visit to the United States this past week. I am so blessed to have many friends all over the United States who are faithfully supporting me in many ways. I wish that I could have spent time with all of my friends who contacted me about visiting when I was in the States. I think that I will need at least 6 months to visit everyone when I return again in about 3 years.
