It doesn't matter where a girl lives or what languages she speaks....playing dollhouse brings them all together!
Yesterday our girls had a play date at our house with a girl whose parents are missionaries in Cambodia. While their family is here on furlough, she's spending a week with her grandmother, so we took the opportunity to invite her over. (And yes, she speaks beautiful English!)
Having our daughters interact with missionaries and their families is a blessing. I want them to catch a glimpse of the burden others have for reaching a certain part of the world for Christ. Putting faces and personalities with the missionaries we pray for makes them more "real" than just seeing their picture in a newsletter.
What a great reminder this afternoon was to all of us that we have brothers and sisters in Christ all over the world whom we can pray for and encourage as they seek to serve the Lord in the place where He has called them.
