Our house in Boise, Idaho, backs up to a park with a walking track. You can see most of the path from our kitchen window, and because of that I’ve learned to recognize people by their walk.
There’s a lawyer from down the street who’s always in a hurry, an elderly man who trudges slowly by, a woman who strides with purposeful steps. Each has a characteristic gait.
The Bible instructs us: “Walk in love, as Christ also has loved us” (Eph. 5:2) and “Walk in wisdom” (Col. 4:5). I ask myself, “Does my walk reflect God’s love and wisdom?” Am I “pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy”? (James 3:17). Do I have love, joy, and peace? Am I tranquil and strong? What do others see as I walk by?
George MacDonald said, “If you who set yourselves to [theorize about] Christianity had set yourselves instead to do the will of the Master, the one object for which the gospel was preached to you, how different would be the condition of that part of the world with which you come into contact.” How different indeed!
Is your life making a difference in the lives around you? Do others see Jesus in what you say and do? —David H. Roper
Help me to walk so close to Thee
That those who know me best can see
I live as godly as I pray,
And Christ is real from day to day. —Ryberg
For a Christlike walk, keep in step with Jesus.

Dorin expertly pressing on patterns for the castle.
The young boy.
We got to eat this and we all ate a bit of sand in between our gums and teeth. But we don't care.
It's a quest to win! And we finished in 2nd. Hooray!~

We gave our best hospitality to them, overwhelming them with questions of their culture and their trip here.
They are very happy with our Church hospitality and our friendliness, definitely will come back again when possible.
This is the only Korean who can speak "better" English, as much as he can, he interpreted for his companions.
Thy are all very warm and friendly, even participated in our games and did very well in it despite the fact that they could hardly understand what the Game Master was saying.
Language barrier aside, it was very pleasant to have them for the evening.
God bless them, hope they enjoyed their stay here.
