Another huge answer to our prayers is our small group! After over two years of church shopping Michael and I finally found a church we liked in 2010, soon after that we decided to join a small group to help get a little more connected in the church. Little did we know that this group of people would become such a support to us and an incredible blessing in our lives! Words cannot express how much we love and cherish their friendship. They have been a tremendous blessing in our lives, they have supported us, prayed for us, encouraged us and celebrated with us. I know that these friendships will last a lifetimes no matter how much distance seperates us. Michael and I have enjoyed getting together each week studying the Bible and learning so much from each one of them, they truly have helped Michael and I grow so much in our faith and as a couple. They are some of the kindest most generous people we know and we are honored to call them our friends. It was not easy at all saying goodbye to them, during our last Bible study together they all prayed over Michael and I and it was so touching for me, it meant so much to us and I would be lying if I said I didn't quitely sob through the entire prayer. To know that we have so much support and love surrounding this transition was so comforting. When we finally said goodbye I put on my brave face and smiled but when Michael and I drove away I broke down in tears in the car, I really really hate goodbyes, but I know we will be visiting as often as possible and hoepfully skyping in occasionally during Bible Study!
Love these people!
