On Sunday, John, Eli, and I hit the road for our first family events of 2013. I was a little bit apprehensive, but only because it had been several weeks since our last event. If God taught me anything last year, it is that He is with us wherever we go. So, in the back of my mind, I knew it was going to be a great day. We began our day at Elon Baptist Church in Pamplin, VA. It was a special day for the church because a wonderful dedication was being made.
We were privileged to hear about the many lives that were touched by Peggy Mann. Because of her passion and love for children, her family and the folks at Elon have created “Peggy’s Clubhouse”. It is a beautiful, kid-friendly place where children will learn about Jesus! I couldn’t help but think about how thankful I am for the angels who work with children every day. John would share with the congregation how Eli was seriously injured at the age of 3. One of the greatest comforts that I had at that time while Eli lay unconscious in the hospital, was knowing that he knew Jesus. When I couldn’t comfort him, I knew that his friend Jesus would.
