When sharing memories with a stranger in a queue brings encouragement...
Paul Winter, who serves on our Operation Joy project, will speak to anyone, even in a queue!
I have continued to take my wife, Angie, up to see her sister in hospital and as a result have seen N, who I used to meet in the town centre, a number of times. This week N was in conversation with a lady I didn't know, D. We queued up at the shop in the course of our conversation and I saw my brother-in-law being served in front of us. As he turned to speak with me D remarked that she recognised him from years ago when attending clubs at Church, and that she remembered Stephen's wife as well. I said that she would therefore know my wife as well. When Angie came after her visit, they shared some of their memories of the clubs that they attended at the church. This was a great encouragement for Angie, and she remarked that she was meant to go and see her sister that evening.
