Benji's Back!!

So, we had community group at our house last night, and just as we were wrapping things up, we hear a knock at the door. Boy, were we shocked and thrilled when we opened the door to this familiar face!!!
He had literally JUST flown in from Africa!
And surprised us!
Such a happy reunion!

For those of you that don't remember, we took in Benji to live with us for a while last semester. We lovingly began referring to him as our foster child. While he was here, I showed him one of my all-time favorite blogs, kisses from katie, and warned him that it would change his life. Because it's changed mine. And, if you click on it and read it yourself, it will change yours as well. Anyway, little did I know how true that would actually be for Benji! Shortly after he started reading the blog, he knew that God was calling him over there. And, he just returned from spending 2 months in Uganda. We stayed up till midnight hearing stories and laughing and crying. Needless to say, he had the most amazing 2 months ever and is actually back here to raise support so that he can return!! If anyone is interested, PLEASE come on board and let's send Benji back to Africa so that he can continue to serve the Lord there!!!

Here he is with letters that Katie's girls gave him before he left. So precious!!
