To say missions has been apart of my life since I was a kid would be pretty accurate. At the age of three, my parents and my older sister and I packed up, left Arizona and moved to China and later on to Hong Kong.
I have a 4 year old now (and an 8 and 2 year old) and the idea of moving my family across the world to be a missionary and pioneer a church seems very daunting- I can’t begin to imagine how it was 35 years ago!
I stayed in Asia until I was 18. During that time, I was able to travel to other countries in South East Asia and even joined my first mission trip at the age of sixteen to Thailand.
When I moved “back” to the United States, it didn’t take long for me to realize I was no longer “home.” People talked a little different. The slang was a little different. People dressed differently.. everything that I knew from when I was here for the summers was not the same.
Today, I get the opportunity to not only be a part of what is going on around the world through PCGlobal Missions but I am able to give to missions monthly. I started this several years ago when I realize that we (my husband and I) weren’t giving to missions. I was working in the missions office (and have been since 2010), but giving was not on my mind.
