IN OWN WORDS:
"Missionary work is something that will stay with you for your whole life. It shows you who you are and what you are made of. Some of my favorite and worst memories are of our time in Tanzania. I'll never forget the simple joy of Joan, one of our students, when we got new books for the library, because she had read all the others several times. Or eating chipsi maya and swimming in the Indian Ocean. Or going a month without running water and surviving. Mission work is a great adventure."
