very Sunday afternoon like clockwork, my husband, Bob, and I take our copy of the Washington Post to a nearby café. We leisurely take turns reading the various sections of the newspaper, making small comments now and then. But if there is an article one of us finds especially interesting, we point it out to the other. When we leave, we stack the newspaper neatly and leave it for someone else to read. I certainly respect that people like to read news and stories in their own ways, but I can’t resist pointing out that this issue of Mission 360° is special! This issue celebrates the joyful lives of real women as missionaries, wives, trailblazers, and sisters. They are volunteers and friends, young and old, who surprise themselves by what they
can do. Best of all, they make us laugh and learn along with them a s t h ey s h a r e their stories. Here are some quick recommendations for you: If you like to cook, check out the Malaka family recipes from Egypt on page 18. If you want a good chuckle, read about Sharlene Hayton’s experience as a paparazzi impostor on page 4. If you think you could learn anything from a prostitute, see what Amy learned on page 14. There is so much more to tell you, but I must not encroach on your reading time. But please do two things: 1 2
If you enjoy this magazine, please pass it on or tell someone about it. Join us in thanks and appreciation for the women who are doing their best to reach others for Jesus.
Thank you for helping to support missionaries and frontline workers in big cities and rural areas. We invite you to give an additional gift, if you can, through your church or by using the enclosed envelope. Thank you for helping to make things happen!
