God used you to make something wonderful and special happen to me during my trip to Lima, Peru.
As I had stated in our previous conversations, "I have serious dog issues." Prior to going to serve in Peru, I had not taken the time to learn much about the culture. Thus, the fact that the place is overrun with dogs only surfaced once we arrived. Steve, with no exaggeration, my trip would have been a disastrous mess had you not tutored me about dogs and there behaviors. Thoughts of you, your expertise, your warmth and your kindness filled my heart repeatedly. I was confident, calm, and continued to hold my own because of you.
Steve, there were dogs EVERYWHERE, including those who were left on flat-top roofs while their owners
went about their daily affairs. There were big dogs, little dogs, dogs trying to make babies, sick and diseased
dogs, pretty dogs, fighting dogs, long tit dogs who had added to the dog explosion and barking, yelping dogs.
Words fall flat in conveying my gratitude. Thank you so very much for making my trip doggone bearable.
I still would like to work with you more. In a short time, I will be moving to Raleigh and writing a biblical exegetical,
so time will be of a premium. When things slow down some, I will be in touch.
Rich blessings unto you,
Judy K. Dixon,
