On Sunday our church will recognize to young ladies that will be going into the mission field. Both of these girls are simply amazing, they have truly given their life to Christ and are following his example. Both are college graduates, both had lots of career opportunities, but both have set all these things aside to go to the world and spread the message of Christ.
I can’t imagine what it must feel like to be the parent of one of these two. To see your daughter grow and devote themselves to the spread of the gospel in a foreign land. Man that is amazing, and must also be extremely stressful. Margaret is headed to Laos and Sarah is headed to the Philippines. Both are going as self supported missionaries.
Just to think our church has been around for well over a 100 years, and we have had many surrender to the ministry, but I don’t believe we have ever had to surrender to become missionaries. These guys truly are modern day heroes.
