On the 21'st of January 2017, I went to see a play of Little Women that my youngest sister-in-law was staring in. I decided to join her and my in-laws at the cast after party where I decided to sit with my in-laws and one of the other dads because I didn't really know anyone in the cast. I had just gotten my food and was about to eat when a girl came up to me and asked me to sit with her and her friends. She was so nice and welcoming to me and invited me to attend the Wednesday night service at her church that my sister-in-law also had been begging me to go to for months. I finally decided to go and started enjoying the worship, the small groups and became friends with this amazing woman of God. We kept getting closer and closer until I asked her to be my wedding photographer and she became a very important person to making my wedding an amazing day. We have gotten so close that we spend almost every day together and we are each other's second eye when we edit sessions. She has become my best friend, my confidant, and my sister in Christ.
On January 24'th of 2018, she will be leaving for three months to go serve on a mission trip in Tialand and Cambodia. She will be working on a ranch that serves as a rest home for people that have been trafficked in Tialand. She will also be working with children teaching them English while in Cambodia. I am so excited to see how God is going to use her over there.
She is such an amazing friend and I can't wait until she gets back and I can hear all the amazing memories she has made. If you are reading this Hanna I am so proud of you and thank you for being such an amazing friend to me this past year. I am so excited for you but I will also be counting down the days until you get back. I hope you have an amazing time over there and I can't wait to hear all about how God is going to use you.
