For the missionary wife:
When you are alone, your husband is traveling, and it may seem impossible not to be anxious especially if he is delayed – there is only one remedy-large and frequent doses of the Word.
We tend to think that God’s promises are only for those who pioneer and dare great deeds for His sake. but the staying-at-home-to-look-after-the-children- mother can also be way-worn and lonely, and for her too He has promised His presence “even unto the ends of the earth.”
