Today’s Monday link is of a personal nature. Mark was confirmed yesterday. And as I mentioned in a previous post, his testimony was about my brother.
When I read his testimony on Wednesday, I cried. I told him it was amazing, and that he really has a gift of putting into words how he feels. I also told him to be prepared for there to be tears in the congregation of those who know the situation. He said, “I know. I’m kind of expecting that. In fact, I knew when I came down here and you read it today, that you would cry.”
He wanted to make sure he wasn’t being “mean.” I assured him he was not. He said that he had thought of being more specific about the “personal issues,” but thought it best not to elaborate.
So, without further ado, I give you the link to his testimony.
I am so proud of him. I cried a little when he delivered the testimony, because I was amazed at what a strong Christian Mark is. And, how I truly fall short. My friend told me that Tom and I had built a strong foundation for him. Thank you, Liz. But, still I wondered how I would be able to prevent what happened with my brother to happen with Mark.
Then, I remembered Mark’s verse. And, I’m following Mark’s example.
