Memories from the mission field Pt 2: Bill

I met Bill through a class in high school where we would go and visit with the residents at a local retirement home. 
We became very good friends, and he adopted me as his granddaughter.
 I continued to visit him through the years, until he passed away in 2010.
He was so excited to hear me talk about my dream of going to Africa. Every time he introduced me to someone he would say, "You know she's going to go to Africa some day."
He would always end our visit with saying to me, "I'm so proud to know you. And when I get to heaven, I'm going to put in an extra special good word about you to our Father. I'll make sure he takes you to big places. You'll get to Africa."
