I remember as a seventeen year old and his entire family and the beautiful crazy. Miraculous back story is that our parents did not introduce us, and we had never met in the first seventeen years of our life. But our parents relationship goes back, even before my dad of minimum readable, yet, they both in ministry, both sides of our family. And yeah. We're so grateful for them. There are heroes, as far as people that we process with people that speak with them into our life, people that protect us and who we want to be like it's riches.

Yon even just thinking about in ministry when you guys started in Miami, which, you know, we love that city yet got us done so much in our hearts over time in that city and made so many promises to us that he's fulfilling in these days.
