Dave Griffith just walked out of our office for the last time...he and his wife Sue have been working with us over the past 4 months. They are missionaries to France and they will be missed. They have made a HUGE impact on the community, our church and me. I love them like family...it is hard to say good-bye. Don't get me wrong...I am VERY EXCITED about what they are doing...I am excited to send them off. The reason I'm crying at my desk right now is because I won't see them as much.
THIS IS HOW IT SHOULD BE!!!! It should be hard to say good-bye...because that means that they have invested their lives with us...it means that they have impacted people...they didn't just come and show up...they DOVE IN...
I pray for each of you...that if God moves you to a different neighborhood, city, job or wherever that you will be missed. That there are tears shed because you have poured yourself into people.
I love you Dave and Sue and pray that God will use you to reach MANY people for him in France!
