become a missionary I used to dream of becoming a missionary. I envisioned a life where I’d speak multiple languages, travel the world and share the love of Jesus with the people I’d meet.

And while that never happened, the amazing thing is, God fulfilled that dream in my heart when I answered His call to sponsor a child. Sure, it’s not exactly the same thing. But for me, knowing I can reach across the miles to make a difference in the life of a child and fulfill my calling here at home, well that is a dream fulfilled.

So when you watch this fun video think about all the way that you too are a missionary — and share a few in the comments!

      That’s awesome Robert!! Especially with how much technology is being used today. You can reach people in such a unique way. People who may never have had the chance to hear the Gospel otherwise. God bless your work!!

    Beautiful job! This speaks to every parent who wants to do more but is swamped at home doing God’s work with the kids.
