2012 in Review

My best friend gave me a planner for my birthday last year with space to write in every day, and I decided to use it like a journal. I wrote something that happened every day as well as anything big we had going on, like church meetings. I was consistent enough that there are only a few days with question marks for the whole year. I was reading through it today and wrote down some of the big events. I also counted 70 churches that we were in this year for meetings or conferences. Here are our highlights from 2012!
