Missionary Mothers

By Michelle Avery — Editorial Assistant, Herald and Banner Press

This month in The Church Herald and Holiness Banner, editor Mark Avery wrote about “Unseen Missionaries” — those people who spend their lives at home yet somehow manage to reach out to countless needy people.

It seems only proper in the month of Mother’s Day to mention the unseen missionaries we celebrated last Sunday. Mothers often find themselves serving as taxi drivers, short-order cooks, and talking encyclopedias. They seem accustomed to the hundreds of inconveniences met each day.

Still they also find time to volunteer at church — singing, teaching, crafting, and babysitting. Mothers become missionaries when they mingle their love for God with their love for their children and neighbors.

Thank God for mother missionaries!
