Debby and I appreciate the warm hospitality showed to us by both Paul and Suzie in the late 80s and throughout the 90s. They opened their home to me many times while I lived in Fairfax. May the Lord richly reward them both. We have been rejoicing that the Lord used a gospel tract at a gas station to bring Paul to Christ, and through him, many others. May the Lord reward the person who left that tract! Without Paul’s salvation (& other subsequent family members), we might never have met and married and been privileged to serve the Lord in Australia for the last 21 years. We love you, Grandma Suzie.
