The more integrated our family becomes into the missionary community, the more stories we hear from other missionaries. There are many amazing reports of what God is doing through His faithful followers throughout the world. There are also more stories than I’d like to hear about danger, destruction and persecution. While we realize this is all a reality, it is hardly something we sit around hoping or praying for. Our thoughts are not on the negative, only on the positive. Hearing stories of others who have walked this path before us is good. It’s good to know what to expect and to be reminded that we are not exempt from the negative happenings around the world. It is even better to hear about the miraculous God moments taking place everywhere. Please take a moment to pray for missionaries around the world today. Especially those facing danger and persecution.
