A Wonderful Visit with Redeember Pres, Santa Rosa

In mid-October Wendell and I were able to fly down to Santa Rosa, CA to visit Redeemer Presbyterian Church. Redeemer has prayed for us, supported us financially, and sent teams for the last five years! We are so grateful for them and their partnership in the ministry. As you can imagine, the visit with this church family was wonderful. We enjoyed staying with the Hall Family and visiting with them. Wendell and I were both overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and concern for us and the Yakama people from this church. To my surprise, Wendell opened up to the church at lunch on Sunday and share about the suicide of his son which took place last November. We all wept and the elders came up to pray for him and his family. The whole experience was very moving and powerful.
