Yesterday I was out of the studio. Nelson and I drove over to New Bedford, Massachusetts to see our friend Pastor Paul Emmanuel Ntap Ekoue, visiting from Yaounde, Cameroon. Pastor Paul is married to Wabi Pearl, a wonderfully gifted artist. We spent a Sunday with them in Cameroon at their Presbyterian church - where Nelson preached, in their home - meeting Wabi and seeing her jewelry-making and out to a delicious relaxing dinner. A perfectly refreshing day! Our time together yesterday was a great blessing, catching up on family and friends back in Cameroon. I wore the necklace and earrings Wabi created.
Nelson and I are abundantly blessed with friends and friendships around the world - like with Pastor Paul and Wabi. Really, what is more important than relationships? Nothing!!! When all is said and done, relationships-people, grounded in faith in Jesus, are all we take to heaven.
