“Therefore we are always confident, knowing, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: for we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” II Cor. 5: 6-8
Jaime, your family loves you and will miss you until we meet again. Play beautiful music for our Lord.
