"And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again."
2 Corinthians 5:15
Isn't my friend Afua beautiful? You can see at a glance that she is beautiful on the outside, but she is beautiful on the inside, too.
Aaron and I have known Afua almost as long as we've known each other. She played viola while we played cello, and she followed us to college in Florida becoming another member of the caravan as we drove the 1000 miles back and forth.
She played in our wedding, and we played in hers, delighted when she found the perfect husband. They have encouraged and supported us while we have served the Lavukal in the Solomon Islands.
Now they have a beautiful family, and we were blessed to stay with them on Monday night. They are the kind of people who "no longer live for themselves, but for him who died for them and was raised again", and we were encouraged by our time with them.
