I have always felt a tug toward full time ministry, and I have always had a call to teach. I remember being little and lining up my dolls and stuffed animals to "teach" them. I also remember a year at kids' camp, probably going into sixth grade, when the speaker invited us to stand if we felt called to be a pastor or missionary. I stood up and have never been able to shake that call, even after nine years of teaching in a renowned school district in the suburbs. Each time I hear a missionary speak, see a video clip about missions, or pray for missionaries, my heart beats a little faster as I ask God how He is calling me to participate in His Story.
