My baby is going on her first mission trip!

My oldest daughter, Riley, is 16. She is leaving at 10 a.m. for Dallas, TX. She will spend 4 days there and then her group is off for a mission trip to Alaska! She is going with a great group from our old church. Along with this group are 2 awesome adults! And the trip is part of the ministry/missions of Global Expeditions. So she is in good hands.

I am so proud of her! She has a wonderful heart for God and is not afraid to share it. Please pray with me that the Lord is able to work through her and that while she is ministering to others, the Lord can use this trip to also strengthen her faith and love in and for Him!

I had never even thought about participating in a mission trip at 16! She is a such a neat girl, and I know the Lord has blessed her with so many special gifts. I am so overjoyed that she is using these gifts to help others find the Lord! What more can a parent ask for???\

*Riley is the one on the left. I am on the wrong computer. All our pics are on the laptop, but I did find this one from this past winter. Her friend is Mollie and she is going on the trip too!


  1. I sooo love this! I'll be praying for her everyday along with for you...I know you've got to be a little worried :) May she be used for His glory! Amen!! :)
