   Today is my son’s birthday. As you may have noticed, his birthday is right before Mother’s Day. God presented me with the most precious Mother’s Day gift ever on 5/10/83!

   Even though the ocean separates us, he is only a phone call away, thanks to the internet! It’s comforting to hear the sound of his voice. Funny too, because I could hear the squeals and laughter of his sons! They were attacking him while we were trying to talk. Oh, this mother’s heart is full!

   I want to thank all of the thousands (maybe even millions) of people who pray for our missionaries on their birthdays. May I remind you that even though you may not know my son, the Holy Spirit knows everything there is to know about him.  He knows what his needs are today. He knows what my son’s prayer requests are this day. I am confident that the Holy Spirit will interpret your prayers. 

    And He who searches the hearts knows the Spirit’s mind-set, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. Romans 8:27

   This Mother’s heart is comforted by the knowledge and truth of the above verse. Never take for granted the power of your prayers as you intercede for our missionaries on their birthdays. Their mother’s depend on them.
