It's been almost five years since we've seen our dear friends Clint and Christel. Way back in the day, when Justin and I were first married, these two were some of the people closest to us, and two of the people God used most profoundly in our lives. On top of that, they're just so much fun to spend time with. We were so thankful they were here for a conference, but also able to spend time with us.
This is a couple who will forever hold a dear place in our hearts.
These urban Galotti and Clary kids were fascinated by videos of the Humfrey boys riding horses and living the lives of cowboys.
In the morning of their visit, it was actually Ella's birthday, and so we were able to have a particularly festive birthday breakfast!
And the big gift for this four-year-old...
a new bike!
Clint drew pictures for our boys that they have treasured.
Clint also showed them how to have an authentic western fight. (I'm not sure if I'm describing this correctly... a shoot-em-up of some sort, anyway...)
Sunday morning in church Clint preached at WTBC, and I know for Justin it is always particularly meaningful when Clint is able to come and bring the word, as Clint was one of his mentors way back during seminary days.
All in all, it was a short be sweet reunion with dear friends.
