What's It Like to Be an SM Mom?

Beth Clark shares the experience of sending her son to Bolivia

Mason with his students at Familia Feliz
"As Mason’s mom, sending him to Bolivia as a student missionary for several months was difficult. I had concerns about not being able to “rescue” him from my imagined scenarios.  Unfortunately in January of his term, he did end up in the hospital with a mysterious illness! The Student Missions Office stayed in close contact with Mason, my husband, and me. They were ready to listen, talk over options, problem solve, support, pray - whatever we needed. They were committed to having a positive outcome. Once Mason recovered, he was able to spend the remainder of his time at Familia Feliz. He later returned home with a permanent passion for missions!"
