Open Eyes in Africa

Mission Trip

My daughter is on a mission trip. All the way in Africa. For me, this is a test of faith.

She asked that her eyes would be opened. The next communication was this picture.mission trip

I heard her voice. Once. So full of excitement. Wonder. Fun.

She’s having the time of her life. Learning lessons that only come from experience.


Like never before



Like never before


The stories are amazing.

But they are hers, not mine.

So I will let her tell them.

But for now, she has three more days before the long trek home. Will you pray for her, please?

  1. Interesting post.
    Why is this a test of your faith?

    • Great question! The test of my faith was allowing my 15 year old daughter to travel so far away (gulp!) and there was a link to another post about raising the funds. When I felt God asking me to trust Him, my first response (sadly) was “uh oh, can I?” instead of “Yes Lord”.
