Today we embark on our first mission trip together. We’re not traveling to Africa or China. Our service will be in the mountains of West Virginia.
When my daughter was dedicated, we prayed over her with 1 Timothy 4:12:
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
As she sleeps in the church mini-bus beside me, I am in awe of her innocence. I pray that I’ll be able to inspire her to pursue Christ – that this adventure will keep the fire for a Savior burning within her.
For now, I’ll let her rest. She has so much left to teach me.
