Body and Soul Snapshot
Recalling the events of the past year, has given me reasons to sorrow, be thankful and to rejoice. BandS has no better friend than the Carrigan family. When Danny and Amanda lost their son Bryce in a tragic automobile accident, it brought us all to our knees and in need of heart repair. Bryce had travelled with his Dad to Kenya the summer of 2012 and all the Malindi team fell in love with him. For my immediate family, the feelings for the loss of a child/grandchild were much closer to the surface of our hearts than we realized. We sorrow, but not as those who have no hope.
However, we do have so much for which to be thankful. High on that list is our gratitude for our BandS donors, who have been very generous. Our work has not suffer for lack of funds. My season of rejoicing has not ended. Living in the world we do, we could not travel safely, eat food we are not accustomed to, travel in countries that have very little security if it were not for the mercy that is extended to us by our Heavenly Father. Please know how thankful I am for your support. To view a summary video, click here: Watch Video.
