When I was 9 or 10 years old I had a school assignment to write a paragraph about what my life would be like in 20 years, and I stated that I wanted to marry a missionary and have 3 or 4 children. Skip forward a few years to my wedding ceremony, during which this passage was read “…whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge…” (Ruth 1:16). Now, here I sit in Iringa, Tanzania, married to a man who has given his life to sharing the gospel, and blessed with four precious children who are really no longer children (make that five – I have a wonderful son-in-law as an added blessing). I am a quiet person and sometimes feel so inadequate for the role I play, but with God’s help, I do the best I can; after all, apparently He thought I was up to the task. When I’m not cooking, cleaning, quilting or playing the part of secretary/editor for my husband, then I enjoy reading and writing. Blogging is one way I have found to stay in touch with the rest of the world.
