Shout-Out to Sweet Ruth — When we first met on a missions trip, I didn’t think we’d be friends, but boy was I wrong! A few years later, you moved to the States, and we had one of those awkward “hey-we-should-probably-be-friends-so-let’s-go-to-lunch-and-try-to-get-to-know-each-other-better” lunch dates. The rest is history, as they say. You quickly became one of my dearest friends! I love all the memories we shared over those years.
And to this day, your story still inspires me. During the season of what was probably your worst trial, my faith grew so much as I watched the Lord work on your behalf. When I saw what He did for you, I knew He could do anything! And you have always been so full of faith and peace — even in the face of terrible trials and danger, your trust in the Lord keeps you steady.
Thank you for a beautiful testimony of walking by faith…. and for a fun, adventurous, and encouraging friendship!
