Today I was reading a friend’s Facebook status & the comments written about it. They are joining our mission. The status was about how they came to this decision and what their current plans are. And of course the comments are in response to this news.
This status, along with others (pics of crazy things like spiders, snakes or weird food) often causes (some) people to say things like, “I could never do that!” Here’s the funny thing…neither can I!!!! I
don’t like HATE spiders & snakes. And just to be honest, I’m kind-of a picky eater….no weird foods for me thank you! But the truth is, God still uses me/us here. And He loves us so much that we even have ‘perks’. Granted, there is a great deal of sacrifice. We give up being close to our family & friends. We have to learn to adjust to a new language & culture. We may not get to enjoy some everyday things like AC & fast food. But it’s not all sacrifice.
Here’s one perk that I have. Please ignore the crazy make-up & costumes…these are the best pictures I have could find (without wasting a TON of time!) that shows a good view of my kinky, wild, crazy hair.
