I left about 3:30 a.m. on 4ish hours of sleep to make the drive to the Phoenix area. One stop for gas and about 6 hours later, I arrived at my friend Gavin’s house. It was a joy to get to see his adorable little baby Aletheia who I had been waiting to meet since she was born.

We went on a nice walk around a lake in the afternoon but mostly just hung out inside and talked.


Gavin invited a missionary to China over for dinner and served us massive ribeyes. Mmm they were good! We had great conversation learning about China and the missionary’s work there among a Muslim people group.


We ended our evening together praying for China and a man who is imprisoned there for his faith in Christ.
