“I’ve never met Betsy, but if I do, she’ll get a big high-five from me. But that’s the thing, I’ve never met Betsy. I haven’t even visited her church on a Sunday, let alone preached there. But Betsy, along with many others in her church, spent a chunk of last Friday night, praying for us here in Stockholm. Praying, caring & loving. She even took the time to write us a postcard to tell us that.” – What Betsy Willis taught me about being a family of churches
