Malachi had an infectious smile and quiet personality that allowed him to shine even when he tried to go about unnoticed. He made friends everywhere he went, and everyone loved him.
His was a leader and a role model, he would want us to keep John 16:22 in our hearts….Now you are having pain but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
