Here we make friends:
friend is someone you share the path with (through thick or thin,
richer or poorer, in good times & bad) - African proverb.
A week ago they did not know each other - one from a small Utah town and the other from Maryland, Liberia. The American wears size 15 shoes. The Liberian received his mission call last summer and because of the ebola crisis waited almost a year to come on his mission. Only once before had this American lost an arm wrestling match...until he met his companion. And now they are fast friends.
