GET OUT OF THE WAY. When our 3 kids were younger we took a trip to Waco to attend World Mandate, an intensely radical missions conference. Josiah was 15, Bethany – 12 and Hannah – 9. At the end of his talk, one speaker called for those that would volunteer to go to the hard places to stand. With quick glances, as mothers do, I watched my kids. They were sitting scattered throughout our group. I saw Josiah stand firm without hesitation! I captured sight of of Bethany boldly standing. Then little Hannah climbed up into her chair so she too could be counted among the ones that would go.
