August 17: Love at a Convenience Store

Chinsuk Kim first picked a career as a radiology technologist in a Las Vegas hospital.  She quickly realized, however, that the job was not for her. After working in a casino for a few years and saving some money, she discovered a convenience store franchise opportunity. Owning a store, she found, was a good fit for her personality.

A few years later, Todd Ferguson walked in to that store for a cup of coffee; he soon became a regular customer. On one visit he asked if Kim needed help. She said yes, and a business partnership began—one that would lead to their opening four additional convenience stores in Las Vegas.  They also formed another kind of partnership—as husband and wife.

“If you ask us what this store has done for us,” Ferguson says, “we’d say it brought us together.”

Not every path we take in life leads to success.  But every road traveled helps us encounter others—those we may love, and who will love us in return.

And now faith, hope and love abide…and the greatest

of these is love.  (1 Corinthians 13:13)

Lord, show me Your face in all I meet this day.
