Being a Missionary

* Maddix is guest blogging today. These are the unedited, untouched, honest words of our oldest daughter.*

Being a missionary is hard. But there is happiness.  Happiness about going to new churches or making new church friends. What’s hard is that you have to say goodbye to friends and family but you’ll see them again. When you’re a missionary you are not going on one adventure.  You go to different churches and to training and adventures with friends.                          
At the party at Brookhaven there was snacks and drinks.  I had to say goodbye to some of my friends. Of course we took thousands of pictures and same with hugs. It isn’t easy to say goodbye to your best friends or teachers. But during training my family learned how to say good goodbyes so training was helpful. God has helped us through this past year.

Going to new churches and making new friends has been awesome! I was happy when I heard I was going to a cook out or fireworks or swimming or a pig roast. But most importantly I am happy to be a missionary! Bless the Lord!!!  

If God asked you to be a missionary would you do it even if it was not easy?

    God has blessed you with an amazing heart, and I can't wait to see how He uses you in Uganda! Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul, worship His holy name! I thank God for making little girls like you that are excited to be missionaries with their parents :)
