I always knew Sokoun was a special brother. I loved our discipling relationship. I led the bible talk group and was supposed to be his leader, but it seemed that I learned more from him than he learned from me. His heart was always very passionately connected to the lostness of those around us. He shared his faith more than me; he prayed longer than me. He was one of those people that are hard to lead because they are always running ahead of you in the areas that matter most. Sokoun was a groomsman in my wedding 20 years ago. I’m proud to be his friend and brother for the last 20+ years. I’m still praying to be more like him.
