Since then, I have watched our kids grow from intimidated newbies to seasoned Youth veterans. I have witnessed one of my girls go from classroom troublemaker to group-chat preacher. I have learned new ways to describe a first kiss and been privy to the maturing and strengthening of what was once a father/daughter relationship at risk. I have seen the sparks of best friendships ignited. I have listened to their tangible fears, wiped away tears and whispered words of affirmation into their ears. I have screamed at God when their hearts get broken and pleaded to Him for words of wisdom when my own words seemed weak and inconsequential.

I know that I have much to learn before I move to San Salvador. What I didn’t know was that God would be using His half-grown humansΒ to do the teaching.
