Last week's missions trip to Nassau was an epiphany for me in a couple of ways as I mentioned in an earlier post (The Cracked Playing Marble). Having been a career foreign missionary for almost twenty years, this was the first time that I had been on a missions trip - not as the missionary - but as a participant. And it was a first time without my husband on a missions trip. We have always been a team when it comes to missions.
Nine ladies and one man went on this trip. We had those in their 50's, 60's, 70's, and yes, even 80's! I was so inspired by these women who did not think a thing about age, but went because they wanted to serve, wanted to encourage, wanted to experience. I learned so much from them. Enjoy the pictures as they tell more of the story than my words could ever tell!
