Today, during URBAN, a young man our team has been connecting with over this last month was sitting off to the side. I sat down next to him and asked how he was doing. He asked if we were leaving him. I had to say yes. He got up and walked away without another word.
Later, we chatted a bit and he was back to his smiling, jovial self. We ended up playing a few games of UNO which re-established our friendship and ended up laughing and joking. It was good and God answered my prayers for my time with Eric today, but it is still hard to leave these people who have gotten to mean so much to us over this last month.
Please pray for our team to love well as we say good bye.
