The Hot Seat is back with two people that I really want you guys to help me honor. I met James and RaDonna when I was in AIM in 92-93. Later I came back as an assistant while they were coordinators in Russia.
I went to Russia to visit some AIMers and got there right as James and RaDonna were leaving so I really didn’t get to see them. But they let us stay in their house during their absence, and watch their movies. It was great to have their place to use and we all appreciated it. It takes some courage to let AIM people have the rule of your house for any period of time.
When I moved back to Lubbock in 2006 I had the privilege of attending the congregation in Seagraves where they work. Even though I don’t know them that well they immediately made me feel welcome.
In the afternoon we went to their home and rested until the evening services. I remember RaDonna sitting on the couch and talking to me for quite a while about some difficult times that led to my move to Lubbock. She allowed me to talk and she was such a good listener. That day meant so much to me and was good for my heart.
Several times since then – they and their children have stopped by to visit us during our Wednesday night services and even on Sunday once in a while. They have been such an encouragement to our little group … and to me personally.
I wish I knew them better. I hope that some of you will help me learn more about them.
Please help me honor two people with huge hearts. They have been an encouragement to so many of us … let’s pay them back in full.
(14 years is a long time ago. These pictures were all I had. If anyone can send me some different ones I will gladly post them.) *** James sent some more recent pics … what a great looking family … thanks James.
