A single woman, Angela was told to consider the sacrifice she might have to make by committing to long-term missions. A one-way ticket to another country could greatly decrease her chances of meeting a husband and having a family. However, Angela was not deterred from God’s call on her life.
While on the field in Thailand, Angela found out how God intended to use her for ministry. One by one, teenage girls whose families found them burdensome and abandoned them, found their way to her home. On their own, they call her “Mom.” This arrangement provides great opportunity for Angela to disciple the girls while providing love and stability.
Angela knew what she might be sacrificing when she chose to make Thailand her home for the sake of the Gospel. She’s grateful that God planned for her to be a mom after all.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program supports missionaries as they sacrifice their wants and desires for the sake of Jesus and the furtherance of the Gospel.
PRAY for Angela as she ministers to these girls that enter her home and also for God to continue to work in the hearts and lives of the girls to whom she ministers.
