When Alison was 2 years old, the Hudgens family moved to College Station. I remember going over to their house for the first time for a meal. It was in the winter and they cooked Potato Soup. We have walked many steps with the Hudgens family, and been encouraged by their presence in our lives. Rachel was their daughter and she was 6 weeks younger than Alison. Kathy Hudgens and I enjoyed helping each other through the parenting years, and now that I'm in Abilene, we talk frequently.
Rachel has married, and she and husband, Sean Landolt, will soon be moving to Canada to serve with the Shelbourne Church of Christ congregation.
Rachel and Sean started their first home in Abilene and we were able to enjoy time with them. They were part of the crew who ate with us on our first Thanksgiving in Abilene. Rachel ask me to read Sacred Marriage with her in the fall, and we both were challenged by Gary Thomas' teaching.
As Rachel and Sean began planning their move, they wanted a good-bye time with friends in Abilene, so they came and stayed with us last week. It was a good time to reflect before starting the details of moving to another country. We know they will be a wonderful addition to their new church community and look forward to all of the adventures God sends them. Blessings to the Landolts.
