Happy Birthday …. Boy!

522846_10100240726249852_39101403_40678409_541869127_nWe are currently finishing up our trip to Brazil — unfortunately we are not able to be home to celebrate our son’s birthday with him.

For years as he grew up working around church camp we affectionately referred to him by the nickname — boy.  “Boy, go get that”.   “Boy, what are you doing”?   “Where is the Boy”?

He is no longer a boy.  He has moved into the adult role of husband, father, head of the house, bread winner, and so on.  He has also taken on those roles with grace.

We are proud of you son.  Maybe next time you can celebrate you birthday on board ship with us!

As disciples always remember — your family is the first mission field in which God has placed you.   Are you making disciples of your children?  Of your grandchildren?
