  4. 4. The simple life this ‘idea’ of serving God as a missionary tends to be made grandiose. there is nothing really fancy about it. Saturday, June 19, 2010
  5. 5. Working the fields Some of the missionaries have been away from their family for years. Many leave their families to be with His youth.

  6. 6. Taking care of Family Requires a tenacity to doing menial tasks. Repetition, organization, dedication, and a just getting up in the morning despite the 35 degree weather. The quest as always, is finding joy in that:) Saturday, June 19, 2010
  7. 7. Building shelter for His people It is easy to get discouraged with the magnitude of what is. But the thing is, need it be that difficult? Need we be so far removed from all this?
