Perhaps the most difficult question of all.
Those of almost any faith would understand the idea of being “called”. God designed us for a purpose. We have the choice to fulfill it or choose our own way. Despite what seemed like overwhelming obstacles, once the decision was made, we jumped in with both feet. (Or is that with both sets of both feet?)
The idea of working in the mission field has gone from being an interest, to a passion, and is now our lives. Yes, we miss our families. Yes, we miss our friends. Yes, we miss Ben and Jerry’s “Cherry Garcia”, and Girl Scout Cookies, and gas for under $9.00/gallon. But when you see the light return in the eyes of someone whom the world has abondoned…it makes it all worthwhile.
