Honoring a Loyal Man
This last Friday Holly and I had the privilege of honoring Jacob Reitzin, a faithful and loyal friend, by attending his 30th birthday party...Jacob helped teach a class through IVSOD on prophecy this year with me in Isla Vista.
It was such a sweet night seeing family and friends come together to acknowledge the incredible life that Jacob has lived, being radically redeemed by the Lord about 10 years ago. The highlight for me was watching a 20 minute slide show that his dad put together from birth till present...there is something of heaven watching a life being honored and progress though the many seasons of life. I was stoked to be able to share a few words during dinner time about who Jacob is to me and so many others.
I have only known Jacob for about 2 years now, though in these two years I have learned so much about the Father's heart of generosity, joy, and adventure. Thanks Jake, for being such a good man and friend...I am stoked for what the next 30 yrs. hold, and I hope your dad will have another slide show prepared for your 60th too!
