Short, but sweet - that's how I would describe our conversation with Mark this morning. It was only about a 30 minute conversation, just enough time to know that he's doing well and is ready to get to New York. It was strange, he sounded different. I wasn't expecting that. But it was different in a good way - very mature sounding. I know, Mark??? He said that Spanish is coming along well, probably not as good as he would like, but well enough to get by once he makes it to New York. He's just anxious to get there!
So, yes it was short, but oh so very sweet! I will have to cherish the memory for quite a while. Christmas is a distant 7 1/2 months away. That thought makes me a little bit sad, but I'll take comfort knowing that's he's heading to where he longs to be and just pray that he's happy. I know that the Lord will bless him as he teaches and serves, and that he will be a blessing to others!
I trust that he will love New York and certain people in New York will love him too! I sure do!
