I once walked through a large hall at a missions convention, talking with convention goers waiting to hear a speaker. “Do you know any parents of missionaries?” I asked. “We want to invite them to a special event tomorrow.”
Most people looked at me funny. “Parents of missionaries? I don’t think so.”
But then one woman said, “Yes, me!” and her eyes filled with tears.

They make huge sacrifices, but they never make the news.
Their children often get attention, but they themselves are usually overlooked.
Their families won’t be getting together for Mother’s Day—except maybe by phone or Skype, if time zones and a good Internet connection coincide.
