Tonight I had the great joy of reconnecting with my friend Mike Atiles whom I haven’t seen in 20 years. He was in town doing some training, and we were able to spend a couple of hours together this evening catching up. It was really fun to talk about our families and all that God has done in our lives through the years.
I have many memories of Mike from our days at Elim (he was a college student, I was a kid in high school who loved rap (before it was popular – especially in our area!)) and I remember when Mike would DJ for me as I rapped at various youth events back in the early 1990s. I still remember visiting him in his dorm room and him exposing me to the one and only DJ Richie Rich before he was spinning for 3rd Bass. Crazy!
