Visiting Our Favorite 92-Year-Old Youth Worker!
Last night Natalia went on our church's Tween campout. Adriana and I drove Claudia to Smithtown to spend the night with her best friend. We decided to take the scenic route down Rt. 25-A. As we were driving through our old stomping grounds I felt led to stop in and check on our favorite 92-year-old youth worker and friend Granny Frannie. While she can't get out of her home much any more, this woman loves teenagers and in my book continues to be a great youth worker because she prays so diligently for them. We picked up a card and popped by unannounced, but we ended up staying for about 45-minutes and loved visiting with our dear friend. Her house is like a museum of black history (literally) and we always learn so much when we visit. Newsday recently did a piece on her. So neat! Granny is so full of life and wisdom and it was indeed an honor and a privilege to have her speak into our lives. Before we left we prayed for her and she prayed over us. A very special God-moment. We cherish every minute we are blessed to share with her.
