A Spiritual Journey Through Poetry with Marion Woods
Maybe once or twice in our lives, God grants us the high honor of meeting someone special—someone who walks so closely with Christ that –for the moment—we are sure that we are walking and talking with our Savior. That is what happened when many years ago God allowed my path to cross that of Marion Woods. From that first encounter, like so many others, I knew that Marion was someone very special. His love of God, his passion and compassion for God’s children were so clearly evident and contagious.
From then on, I have treasured each moment God has given us together. I urge our mission team members to “lean in close” to drink in every word Marion has to share with us. Likewise, I spend every free moment sitting as close as I can—drinking in every bit of wisdom, every ounce of inspiration and every drop of laughter.
God grants us these rare gems only so often and I thank God for the gift of Marion Woods.
Pull up a chair, sip a cup of Costa Rican coffee and be prepared to feel God’s presence as Marion takes you on a walk with the Savior.
