When I grow up.

She was a young excitable little girl, with a sweet tender disposision. When family and friends Add Imagewould ask her what she wanted to be when she grew up, oh, that question just warmed her heart. She knew God wanted her for something special. She wanted to be used to the fullest. The answer usually was the same but full of passion. "I want to be a doctor, teacher, nurse, missionary!" Not fully realizing the extent of those occupations, only knowing that God had called her to take the "Good News" of Salvation to those who had not heard, and to help others as much as possible.
What was it that had touched her heart so? Friends who did not know, slides of child after child in Bolivia who did not know, her Grandpa who did not know...?
It was all of these things that God used in her life to call her into a life of missions.

One day, many years later she would look back on her call, knowing that if God had not called her at that young age she may not have continued on.

She may not be a doctor, or a nurse but is, with God´s strength, serving faithfully where He has planted her.
