Today was super nice as I had an opportunity to visit with my younger sister Kimmy and her family – we actually exchanged Christmas gifts and spent the day just catching up. My mom was also there and we unfortunately don’t have the chance to spend much time together due to work/life schedules so this was also a nice treat. One of the greatest sacrifices that came with moving and our call to ministry was moving away from family. I miss them dearly and appreciate the time I have with them. I know that distance often prevents closer relationships with them and this is hard for me.
