Hey guys, Marci thought she would allow me to write an article today so I am going to tell the story behind this picture. This picture is from painting JJ and Melissa Alderman’s roof railing in Aneho, Togo two summers ago when I went on a mission trip to serve with them for 5 weeks. I was blessed in so many ways over there and loved every second of it over there. I long to return but next time bring Marci along with me. On the railing, I am not sure if you can see it clearly or not, I wrote “I love Marci” on it before I finished painting it. I took a picture to show her when I returned to the States.
While I was over there, I was able to use Skype to communicate with Marci and my family most nights. One of the things I would always tell Marci before I told her goodnight was that I loved her more than the distance to Africa and back home. This picture was a visual for that, I painted for her.
I continue to tell her today, that I love her more than anything and she is everything to me. She loves to hear me say it because I know she knows I mean it. We are both really looking forward to 8 days being up and our wedding day arriving. We are so thankful to everyone who has been an influence in our lives. Our parents, our church leaders, and our friends.We are both truly blessed to have each of you in our lives.
