I had a four-hour visit with childhood compañerita. Delia lived around the corner from our first house in Don Bosco, a suburb of Buenos Aires. We walked to school together from third through sixth grades.
Delia also attended Sunday School in our home off and on.
Eventually her mother also became a follower of Jesus.
Delia went with us to church camp in the sierras of Córdoba and there met Alberto. They've been married almost 40 years. They live in General Deheza.
During this very special visit, though brief, I was privileged to meet the three sons and their spouses, not the grandchildren, maybe next time.
Delia and Alberto are very involved in their local congregation in music, women's ministry and fellowship opportunities for adultos mayores (PC for senior citizens).
Four full hours were not nearly enough, so my dear friend and I continue our conversation via e-mail.
