Proverbs 27:17 - "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another."
This verse is true about many friends in my life. I was able to spend the weekend with one of them. I met Kari when I moved to IRBC. We have been roommates, partners in crime, but most of all - friends. True friendship is rare and a treasure. She truly sharpens me and points me to Christ.
Kari has been a missionary to Brazil for the last four years. She is now going to begin a new chapter in her life. She is marrying a Brazilian and will be a pastor's wife there. Our time together will be rare, but our friendship will last forever.
Thanks, Kari. I love you and can't wait to see what God has in store for you.
(Kari isn't used to the cold, Iowa winters anymore. She was wrapped in a sleeping bag, blanket, jacket and hat.)
