To the Ends of the Earth

 

I will also make you a light to the Gentiles that you may bring my salvation to the ends of the earth.

—Isaiah 49:6b

“It took three days of driving on bumpy roads over high mountain passes to reach the places Father God has put on our hearts. We spent four nights sleeping in a tent and I wondered how 14-month-old Sara would cope.  Thankfully, she was the one who slept best, even when all our bedding was soaked by heavy rainfall!

We visited a dear friend who has tuberculosis, and his uncle with leprosy.  Their simple home was filthy, and everyone wanted to hold and kiss Sara.  Thoughts about what illness and grime I was exposing my daughter to crossed my mind, but, as I witnessed the joy and love she was giving these needy people, I was reminded of who my daughter belongs to first.  Praise God that she was completely healthy throughout our travels!

As I think about living here, I must bring all my fears and concerns about the health and safety of mychildren to the feet of Jesus.  God did such a good job of looking after me as a young TCK, I know without a doubt that I can trust him with my own kids even with the challenges of life in the mountains.”

Pray for:

  • TCKs who are learning to show love and care to others.

  • God’s wisdom in assessing the risks involved in ministry locations for families.

  • God’s peace to garrison the hearts of parents and TCKs. 

 

Could you support TCKs and families like Sara’s?
