Day 167: Remembering David
I heard today that a dear friend of mine has passed away. I've known this friend for over twenty five years and served together on several mission trips to the Amazon, the slums of Peru, and the jungle villages in Nicaragua. He was a brilliant doctor, a loving father and husband, a great friend and a faithful servant of God. On our last mission trip to Peru, we took a day off to visit the museums in Lima. I picked up this replica of an ancient Peruvian pottery at a museum shop, and David bought a handmade leather stool. David was concerned about whether my pottery would make it home in one piece. As you can see, the pottery came back in several pieces. I did my best to put the pieces back together, but there is still a piece missing. For what it's worth, this pottery will always remind me of our mission work in Peru and the missing piece will remind me of my friend David.
