As an MK (missionary kid), I lived in Krakow, Poland—8000 kilometers from my cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. Even in this digital age, that was pretty far away. Yet I was surrounded by “family”—close friends with whom I could talk at any time and my church. As the body of Christ, the members of my church were my grandmas and gramps, aunties and uncles, and counsins. It was like going to a family reunion every Sunday!

In God’s family, I am a sister, niece, daughter, and granddaughter to every Christian on the planet. You’re a part of my family too!
