My Friend, Karine

Much of the motivation for my family sending me to the True Woman conference was so that I could meet my friend, Karine, who lives in Belgium. She was planning to go to the conference. Anna made all the arrangements with Karine and Mary Anne, the organizer of the True Woman European group.

I met Karine through our Titus2 fasting and prayer days. She joined those, and we began a personal correspondence and then Skypes. I don’t think either of us thought we would actually meet each other.

Because of being Karine’s roommate, I was included in the seating for the European group. The European ladies also planned a banquet Saturday night after the conference for their Indianapolis host families (most had stayed with local families Tuesday and Wednesday nights and moved to downtown hotels for Thursday through Saturday nights) and the European ladies.

While the conference days were full and fast paced, Karine and I had lots of talking and praying together. She was able to join my family’s Bible time via FaceTime two days. We ate meals together out and sometimes in our room. It was a very special time for me to be able to spend with a sweet sister in the Lord Jesus.

Trusting in Jesus,



“A friend loveth at all times,
and a brother is born for adversity.”
(Proverbs 17:17)
