Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and int he age to come eternal life.”Mark 10: 39-30
My heart has rejoiced as we have visited family and spent time with relatives at family reunions – in Arkansas and Michigan. Arriving at Cru17, is my spiritual family reunion. Hearing my kids say hello to friends who have been our extended family when family was too far away. Impact family who held my precious babies in childcare so that I could participate in ministry and stay connected. Sending Regions who sent care teams to visit our family while leaving in South Africa and babysitting our kids so that Leon and I could have a break. 17 years ago, I felt like I was giving up so much. Today, I see all the blessings that I have gained.
