These Revelations Changed How I Think about Friendship

Every friendship begins with a hint of selfishness that we all innately possess. But if we learn to flip our vision outward in obedience to God and service to others, His purpose for friendship is revealed.

  1. Dear Meg, I thank God today that I have ‘found’ you. I see that you have walked a long road with the Master. I cannot imagine the amount of tears that washed your face all these years. Your words have the fragrance of perfume. I can smell it thru the laptop. It is my privilege to read your letters. I was born in Romania. I am 66. I was an atheist until I became saved thru a crisis conversion. I live in Nigeria with my husband. We are both medical doctors by profession, but now in full time ministry. We have 3 adult children who live in Texas and 7 grandchildren. I send you greetings… From my lockdown to yours… The Spirit is ONE! God bless you!
