Favorite Bible Character
That would have to be Moses. He spent time with God. In fact, the Bible says that Moses talked to God face to face and lived to tell about it! He raised up a leader (Joshua) and led Israel through a very difficult time in their history and all the while remaining humble and faithful to God.
Favorite thing to do in Tucson
Devon just moved to Tucson in July, but so far he has enjoyed all of the hiking and running trails in the area. There is so much to do outside! Devon just finished running his 9thmarathon at the Tucson Marathon in December 2018.
