Goodbye to Two Dear Friends

Luke, Miss Brittany, and Susanna

Today was a sad day as two dear friends of our family said goodbye. My friend Brittany is moving to Colorado for the summer to work on a vacation-style ranch, working with kids and horses, two of her greatest passions. We hope God's plans follow our hopes and expect to see her back here sometime in October. While we're really going to miss her, this is a dream come true for her, and we wish her the best.

Luke and Susi's friend Nikki is also leaving this week, returning to California on Tuesday. She is returning home with her mother, after being raised by friends of her mother for more than half of her short life. We celebrated our friendship today in a going away party at a local hotel where we enjoyed pizza and lots of swimming! We pray for God's blessings on her, too, and hope that one day soon they'll both be back in Minnesota. Please pray for this little girl and her mom, that they will trust in God in all things and that God will keep them sheltered in His palm.

Miss Brittany and Nikki...we love you...and we will miss you so much! Can't wait to see you soon!
