Everyday that we go some place on shore to do ministry our kids are there with us. Of course most days we give them the option to go or not, so that they have a say in the ministry, but we want them to WANT to be involved. They are very thankful for family and friends back home that support them financially and just being thoughtful in sending candy and goodies at the right times.
We are so blessed by having such amazing kids! This is not an easy life and there are definitely days where they miss their family and friends and all the conveniences of what a “normal American teenager” might have, but for the most part they are here because they want to be.
