We have come to our final day on the road!
The finish line is just ahead and we are ready to sprint the last little bit!
Our last stop is Bend, OR. Here we are visiting our pastor's daughter (from our church in Portland) and her family. We got to know Andy and Naomi when both Phil and Andy were part of the leadership team that led the (then) small Saturday Night service at Southwest Hills Baptist Church. We were immediately attracted to their servant hearts and genuine desire to continually learn from others. It takes a deep kind of humility to be willing to "consider others as better than yourself" (Philippians 2:3) and they live that out distinctly. Even though it's been several years since we last saw them, they are still the same in that sense. Thank you Andy and Naomi for encouraging us with your Christ-like humility and desire to grow and learn from those around you. We truly enjoyed our time with you and getting to know your little ones!
