Week Recommendations #49


Clinching "The Call"
Being sure of one's calling seems so vital in the missionary world. We need to prove it to others and to ourselves! Or do we? I love this take on it--purely Biblical.

In the midst of it all, I managed to write a short tribute to a very kind family who made our last home extra special:
