Missionary Mama

This title is kind of a joke. Meet Tina, my sister-n-law. She is 27 years old. She has been married for almost 7 years to my husband's brother. They have four wonderful kids, 3 boys and 1 girl. I've known Tina since I was about 5 or 6. We grew up as friends at the same summer camp where I fell in love with Jeff. It's awesome that we all knew each other back then and can now share those stories with our kids. Now her and I are such close friends and talk about everything!! It's wonderful to have a sister-n-law that is also one of your best friends!!

Anyway, Tina and her husband Jon are leaving as missionaries in January. They have been away on training for a few weeks now and I already miss them so much. I'm so proud of them and the work they are doing for the Lord! I can't imagine going to another country with four small children. What a gift God has given them!! It takes a lot of courage and faith to do what they are about to do and I'm so proud to have a small part in it.

I love you guys!! I'm so thankful God has given us such a wonderful family!!

Note: I planned on adding a pciture but didn't think Tina would appreciate that : )
