Friendship is a blessingRich Stigall
Friendship is a blessing in so many ways, and when friends come to visit and be present in the places that I get to hang out at with the kids in the Pastors’ care I get giddy.
One of my friends who recently visited is an incredible artist. She had made a journal for her time in Haiti this year, and was excited to journal her thoughts, sketch new ideas and have the kids write their names in it. Very quickly after arriving for our visit, a new friend started drawing something in her book, and then I watched as she started sketching something she saw across the compound. After she was done, he then looked across the way and then for a long time worked on duplicating what he saw across the way, too.
It was such a beautiful moment between two very gifted people and their unique way that they look at the world. It made my heart soar as I saw them sitting together for our entire time we were at Philadelphia.
