A Different Route Than College

We have always known that the traditional college route was not what Grace wanted. She has mentioned more than once that she might want to go into the mission field. Our church has recently started supporting two children and two missionaries through Gospel for Asia. On the way home from church yesterday Grace said she would love to go to India someday and help the children. After lunch I started doing some research about Gospel for Asia and found out that they have a one year school at their headquarters in discipleship training. While getting intensive training she would also be working at Gospel for Asia at their headquarters and would go on a two week mission trip to India. This morning when I told her all this, she was beyond excited. I know she is only in the 7th grade and could change her mind many times, but you just never know where life will take you. This week we are going to sit down and pick a child to sponsor and maybe decide about an extra gift each month for supplies. To find out more information about Gospel for Asia visit at www.gfa.org .
