Mimi and Nonnie

My friend Amy and I met twenty eight years ago on the campus of Moody Bible Institute when Dave and I were there to share about the ministry we were involved in at the time.

Through a supernatural twist of God's grace and kindness, our lives have been intertwined for many years.

But whoever would have imagined that we would be grandmas to THE SAME BABY?!!!

Her daughter married my son, and now we are Mimi and Nonnie to our sweet Charlie!

Our daughters became friends when they were teenagers, and now are sister-in-laws!

It is one of the sweetest delights to be together in Fort Collins right now, enjoying our children and grandson.

Amy and her husband, Mark, have served with us in Josiah Venture for the past five years. They live in Slovakia, about three hours away from us. Yet for this time, she and I get to be here in the States loving on this little man!

Tell me God didn't chuckle to himself all those years ago when we met as young women. He knew all along that someday we'd not only share children, but grandchildren as well. What an absolutely wonderful delight!
