This is Odie checking in from beautiful Montana. The beauty of this state never ceases to amaze me. God created so many amazing places and I feel blessed to get to travel and experience so many incredible things.
I have so enjoyed our time with our friends at Sun Valley Church. We have had wonderful services. Pastor Mike Metzger and everyone here treats us like family and welcomes us to our Montana home.
It is always a joy to be with them. We first visited the Metzger Family and their church over 12 years ago. Time flies when you are having fun.
I am grateful for the friendships we have gained from that visit. I am thankful that God brought our families together. I look back and say that was a God ordained visit.
I want to introduce you to one of my friends here in Montana. Her name is Rachael Metzger and she was one of the first people to greet me 12 years ago at Sun Valley Church. I will admit I get nervous when going to new places, but I quickly found a friend in Rachael.
Rachael is precious and it is an honor to be her friend. She brightens the room when she is near by. She always has a note and an encouraging word.
Rachael is willing to lend a helping hand and she is always there making sure I have everything I need. I cherish the times I get to be with her.
It is a joy to be in a church service with Rachael too. I am encouraged just by seeing her get help from God. She is truly hungry for more of God and the Lord rewards her with His visitation. Service after service Rachael will leave tears on the altar. Also she is so happy helping others pray too. Some of my sweetest blessings have come by praying with Rachael. I know God hears her prayers!
I am so thankful for this sweet lady and friend. She is a gift from God! I will forever be grateful for the impact she has had on our lives. I know I have a friend for life in Rachael!
People all over this country that have met Rachael Metzger and they never forget her. She has been a blessing and encouragement to many people.
Thank you for stopping by and reading today. I hope you have a fabulous weekend. May God bless you is my prayer.
