DEAR YOUNGER ME, WHAT JOY it brings to look back over the years of my life and to see how our Heavenly Father has guided my steps – from the early years until now!
2:45 A.M… The sound of the alarm on my phone jolted me awake. This was it! The day was finally here! May 31st was the day I was leaving for Florida, where I would have a weekend of Boot Camp and then head out for Honduras on my very first Missions Trip.
MISSIONARIES ARE AN inspiring group of individuals. There are countless tales of men and women who sacrificed all worldly comforts for the sake of ministry. They’ve experienced heartache that very few of us can imagine.
I HAVE HAD the privilege of being a missionary kid and also have been on four short-term missions trips. Our family's time in Haiti taught me so much! Something about spending time in another culture, country, or even state, gives you a new perspective on life.
“AND WE ASK that you would be with the missionaries serving on the field.” My grandfather always inserts this in every prayer before saying amen. He probably doesn’t know the amount of impact that it had on me as a little girl.
