Raising African kids in a Central Asian country

"Each day is a challenge for me and my African kids as they grow up in Central Asia," shared OMer Beth. "Some days we hide them behind us and other days we make the decision to encourage our kids to have that photo taken. Each day is an opportunity for me and my family to trust God more and to depend on His love and care for us."

Even though it was unexpected, I am surprised at how smoothly a trip home can pass by, even when emotions are filled with excitement and people are overwhelmed. On June 18, I boarded a plane en route to Nassau, The Bahamas, where I grew up, departing Ecuador for the first time in my 10 months of service here. During my visit, I got to see God use a seemingly simple, everyday experience to impact me in such a dynamic way.
