Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Praying for “Missionary” Moms

A Hidden Anger Within...” Amy’s blog post is refreshingly transparent and can help us all learn to pray meaningfully for partners in ministry all across the globe.

Even with (native) fluency in the target language (and culture), this same dynamic exists. Language acquisition aside, the pressures accompanying the immersion of the entire family in the target culture coupled with the (at least perceived if not real) challenges of what friends, family, and ministry partners across the ocean (or to the north) think or communicate are very real.

Add to that the “extra” time required to move through life on a day-by-day basis, where mundane tasks seem to take much more effort and require being done much more often, and you get a general glimpse into the daily challenges of cross-cultural living and ministry.

We moms of Little People with these added cultural responsibilities, so far from home and family, especially need humbly informed and compassionate intercession on our behalf.
