For Allison Simmons (Zach's Buddy)

My friend, suffering is a part of the Kingdom that I like the least.

"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you."
Luke 6:27-31

You are a gift to our family in the way you care for Ali, Megan and Zach. You are immensely gifted with a mind, a personality and a heart that honors Christ. You are one of the many reasons why Ordinary Community Church exists.

Peace of Christ to you.
