“I’m not sure many missionaries have given their farewell talk in jeans and a T-shirt.”

Shelby Orr, a soon-to-be missionary, and her family, exhibit a great deal of faith as they move forward with her mission call in spite of the decimation that affected their family after the Moore, Oklahoma tornado.

Mission calls often don’t come at convenient times; they are a sacrifice. And they are a family sacrifice. We pray for this family and so many others affected by tragedy such as this one in Oklahoma. And we pray for the missionaries and their families all over the world who are sacrificing so that the gospel message can be shared with more people around the world.
