Last Sunday was an exciting and emotional day for us. Four of our closest friends, Leighton and Mandy Radtke, Tonya Wilkerson, and Leticia Mosqueda blessed us by putting together a going away party for us. This was such a special time for both Freeman and myself as we were able to visit with so many dear friends, many of whom were in from out of town. We were honored to be surrounded by loving and supportive friends – some of whom we see daily and others whom we hadn’t seen in awhile but were excited to reconnect with before our big move. We were also encouraged by their sweet words – both verbally expressed and handwritten for us to bring with us on our journey.
To everyone who was able to attend, we are so grateful for the support and encouragement you are already providing us. We are so blessed to have friends who understand the calling God has placed on our lives and who support us in our going, even though we all know it’s hard to be so far apart, We are grateful for the friendships that God has given us in Texas, we are hopeful for new friendships to form in NYC, and we are confident that all these friendships can span geographical distance when the need arises.
The Three Hostesses – Tonya, Leticia, and Mandy
We also wanted to use this time to provide our new mailing address. We would love to hear from any of you!!
