Chatting With a Friend Based in Indonesia

I chatted through Yahoo Messenger with a member of our church who is now based in Indonesia. He is part of a peace keeping mission there, an international police and we did some catching up on each other's lives.

He mentioned to me that he has a house in Bali and invited me to come and visit him on March and told us to stay at his house. I thought, "Wow!" I sure was interested to accept his offer, Lord willing and if my wife and I would be able to raise air fare until then. At least we wouldn't need to look for vacation rentals in Bali, Indonesia because of the offer he gave.

We had a great time chatting and shared pictures of our families and we are hoping to get our sons together (his son is just a few months younger than mine). Being brothers in Christ is what really kept us close and I am blessed to have him as one of our members at church and as a friend. His generous and caring attitude toward full-time ministers is such a blessing. I do hope we get to see each other again, whether here or in another part of the world.
