“Our children loved the mission field. It was an adventurous journey for them. They were able to travel and see things most children can only read about. They went to public schools in Scotland. Made lots of friends.  My kids had a very rounded education because they were MKs.”

Sandy Roberts – Missionary with Vision Baptist Missions, Grandmother to MKs and former missionary mom


“I had to realize that God was with me wherever I went “
“You need to realize that we are called to love people. All people. Including Americans.”

– Charity Rishel – Missionary wife to Burkina Faso, Former MK and soon to be Mom of a little MK


“I think it’s important to develop your own personal walk with the Lord. Fall in love with Jesus first and everything else will take it’s proper place in life. Learn the language well, make lots of friends and enjoy the part of the world you are in! You never know where the Lord will take you next! Proverbs 3:5-6.”
