Why would any sane family choose to leave the comfort of their beds, travel 2,491 miles in the air with 3 children under 11, and land in an unfamiliar country serving unfamiliar people? That’s a good and fair question.
That’s exactly what Kim and her family are doing for 8 days this June. Kim often lets us peek behind the doors of her ever-busy family. She shares honest real life stories of how she struggles at times to maintain sanity amid daily life with more noise and activity than she ever dreamed possible before kids.
Why then are they doing this? From Kim and her husband, Miah’s own words: “Simply put, we as a family, desire to live a life bigger than our own. We hope to do our best to love others and love God by stepping out of our home and serving those in need…. Yes, it would be cheaper not to bring our kids, but we want them to also lead lives bigger than themselves. We want them to serve and love kids and believe they will be able to reach kids in ways much different than adults can.”
Kim, didn’t ask me to write this post but I was challenged by the letter I got in the mail from her today describing why they decided to embark on this family mission trip. It’s a story worth sharing!
I must admit as a mother, I too, wondered why they would stretch themselves this far. But their letter seemed to answer that question. Life is not always meant to be lived within the walls of our own home and the comforts of our own “stuff!” If your heart is nudged to be a part of this trip with Kim and her family click here to see how you can journey with them.
A proud mama,
