This is Mark and he is so loved by my family. Mark is graduating from GCA this year and has been on my husband’s basketball team so we have been lucky enough to get to know him over the years. My daughter just adores him and as I was working on this blog post, she saw his picture and exclaimed, “That’s Mark, mommy! I love Mark!” I asked her why she loved Mark and she said, “He has tea parties with me!” Yep, that is pretty amazing – a high school guy who is willing to be dragged to a tea party by my 4 year old daughter. Mark loves the Lord with all his heart and it’s so exciting to see how he wants to serve God and to serve others. He is such an encourager and his smile and laugh can brighten anyone’s day. He will be missed at GCA in the years to come but I can’t wait to see what God has in store for him!
