My name is LaRae Papendick. I the a wife of a very dedicated man and a homeschooling mother to two children. I’m slowly learning that this time of my life needs to be focused on my children as my main mission. God is gracious with me, allowing me to learn more and more about dependence on Him. As I learn this, I am finding that He is broadening my sphere of influence to encourage the other global worker families in our close proximity.

We serve the region of North African and the Middle East from a currently peaceful country. Please pray for our family as we endeavor to find healthy balance between training our children and the call on our lives as global workers and  as we hope to inspire other families towards this balance also. Please pray for the adoption we are attempting of a little girl we had in our care for two years at our last location.
