A Challenge and a Step
"I heard the voice of
the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said
I, Here am I; send me."
Challenged by the Lord to become a missionary, Linda left her wonderful
job in Chicago to enter the New Tribes Mission's Jersey Shore "Boot
Camp," located in the heart of Pennsylvania. The year was February
1974. The next semester, Tom Christensen was also challenged by the
Lord to become a missionary and, he too, began his training at Jersey
Shore. He entered the training, not because of Linda, but because the
Lord had really spoken to his heart about missions. Tom and Linda were
married several months later and continued on with their NTM training,
as husband and wife.
