Fifteen years. That is how long it has been since I last saw John Mark. He was about 3 or 4 when I first met him in my first church as a presbyterian pastor. He had quite the personality, as you can see from the photos.
Given all that, it was quite the shock to see the full-grown man he has become. Married, with two children, another on the way, and a quick wit like his parents. He also looks like his dad.
I think the photos I took of him last week were some of the few I’ve taken of him where he wasn’t making a face.
