I have been asked all sorts of things concerning my family living in Costa Rica as missionaries. One of the more entertaining questions has been, “What if your daughter wants to marry a local?”. The answer is simple. “Have you read Genesis chapter 29?” It states that seed carrying boys who desire to marry a missionaries daughter must serve the daughters father for 7 years. (That is how long Jacob served Rachel’s father before being allowed to marry her and then her father pulled a fast one and gave Jacob Leah instead of Rachel.) And if that doesn’t work, I am bigger than the average Tico. And if that doesn’t work, I am sure I will have access to a dog kennel a gun and a shovel and or a car.

Please pray for my daughter.
