My oldest kids, twins Will and Brice, who are about to start their senior year of high school, are leaving on Friday for a week of mission work in Ecuador. It was hard to agree to let them go.
I've read, discussed, and even taught about how our own safety isn't the most important factor in how we should make our decisions before a sovereign God. Now it is time to put my money where my mouth is, and let them go, in God's good hands.
Nonetheless, I suspect my prayer life will be a little more active for the next week or so, and I'd appreciate if anyone reading this would throw in a little extra prayer for their safety, as well as their success on the mission field.
