I remember as a Missionary Kid (MK) growing up and traveling with my parents (Jerry and Joy Spain) to missions services and having people take our family prayer card. I remember thinking, “why would anyone want my picture?”
Well, it wasn’t all about my picture was it? It was about the prayer for our family.
When Marlene and I visit churches that have supported our families for many years we tell them we are not just products of their financial faithfulness but more than that we are a product of their faithful prayer.
This is what Marlene and I are asking for our family…. Prayer support for our family as we embark on this safari to South Africa. We are true believers that prayer makes a HUGE difference in sustaining us in our ministry.
The prayer card –
These are not business cards or trading cards. Missionaries call them prayer cards because we ask that the card serve as a reminder to pray for our family. Please put it on your fridge (we have a number of prayer cards on our fridge), in your Bible or where you will you see it and say a prayer for us.
