Sarah’s 10th birthday

Today is Sarah’s 10
th birthday. It was extra special to be able to celebrate it with our missionary family today. This photo of Sarah with all her missionary ‘aunts and uncles’ reminds me of this promise that Jesus gave:

And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property, for my sake, will receive a hundred times as much in return and will inherit eternal life.

Of course there are the
real aunts and uncles in the United States, but it’s a blessing to have Australian, Dutch and Finnish ones as well to help fill the gap on special days like this one.
