A couple of years ago, two families who live in RV's and travel the country as evangelists came and shared at our church. One of the families had a daughter named Natalie. Natalie and I became close friends very quickly, and by the time they left about a week later, it was like we had been best friends for ages. Since then, we have emailed each other almost every day. About once a year, the Agents for Christ (that's the name of their ministry) pass through Arizona, and come pay us a visit.
Yesterday was that occasion. One of the families was not able to come, but Natalie's family visited with us.
Sunday evening we had dinner, talked, played games, and sang worship songs and Christmas carols. Natalie spent the night with us, and we had fun just talking and playing games before bed.
The next day we just hung out, and did a lot of baking. We made breakfast, played Dutch Blitz, decorated sugar cookies, wrapped candy, and made pizza.
That night after dinner, we got to go out witnessing. We went to the Prescott Courthouse, and then the mall, handing out candy canes and tracts, and singing Christmas carols. We had a great time, and I discovered something new: It's not easy to walk and sing at the same time in the cold! I had never before gone caroling while walking, and I was surprised by how difficult it was! Sadly, I didn't get any good pictures of our time out witnessing.
Even though Natalie was only here for a short amount of time, I was so grateful that she and her family could come and visit with us! I thank God for such friends as them!
