Older Missionaries

Please pray  for more long-term “older” missionaries in their 50s, 60s, and 70s. Someone pointed out that the Earl of Helsburg was 90 when he began preparing his 20-volume revision of English law. Galileo made his greatest discovery at age 73. Hudson Taylor was laboring vigorously on the mission field at age 69. J. Oswald Sanders ministered effectively into his later 80s; and at age 85, Caleb wanted a mountain so that he could drive out a stronghold of giants. Yes, we want young people; but also many “older folks” as well!

I am a older missionary lady who is looking very forward to diving into more wonderful opportunities to speak about the Lord!
I am in my late 50's and gearing up to start singing that old Willy Nelson song, "On the road again! I just wait to get on the road again!"...let me know how I can be of service to you!
