Last night, Jason used a friend's daughter as an example in family devotions...
One day, a young woman went to visit her grandmother on her grandmother's farm. The young lady had just graduated Bible college and was so excited about the ministries God had opened up to her. She found her grandmother out back with the chickens.
Before we ever moved here, we were asked the question, “Are you going to hire a house worker?”
Boy oh boy. Seems like a simple question… until you are actually faced with making the decision! It was actually something we had to take time praying and thinking about for quite some time. There were a few details that made it a tough decision. And it is a tough decision for many families on the field.
I love children. They have such sweet innocence. And they are very gullible.
I remember once when we went one a camping trip with my nephew. He wanted me to tell him a scary story around the campfire. He was about eight years old. I told him the stories I could tell would be too scary. He laughed. He challenged me and said I couldn't scare him. (OK... Those of you who know me also know my competitive nature. I couldn't turn this one down.)
