Day 5: When Worlds Collide - Sioux Falls, SD

It is always a little bit strange when we get the privilege of getting together with Quito people stateside. Living in two vastly different worlds and having a community of people in each, and then having those people occasionally cross over to the “other” world may always seem a bit disorienting. Explaining that alone has gotten my mind a bit confused...

But all the strangeness aside, it was a real treat to see part of the Bierle clan (Sarah and Tessa) in Sioux Falls. We know the Bierle’s from working at Alliance Academy with them. Phil coached JV Basketball with Brad. This past year, I had asked Sarah to mentor me and keep me accountable in a couple of specific areas I hope to continue to grow in, so we have been meeting weekly. Tessa, their youngest (second from the left in the picture), has also baby sat for our girls on several occasions.

Thank you for feeding us and making time to see us, AND THEN stocking up our cooler with treats and yummy food! May the Lord continue to bless you too!
