#FearlessFemales - Day 21 - A tender moment

Another tough topic today:

March 21 — Describe a tender moment one of your female ancestors shared with you or another family member.

I flipped through a number of photo albums and scrapbooks and here is the photo that jumped out:

This is a picture of Mum and me at the Mt Druitt Churches of Christ in early 1989


So what brought Mum to my church that day?

This was my commissioning service at my church - the day the leaders of my church sent me out as a missionary (I went to Papua New Guinea with New Tribes Mission).

What's the tender moment being shown here?

That Mum, despite the fact that she disagreed with my change of religion and choice of vocation, loved and supported me enough to be there for me the whole time - through Bible School, Missionary Training, Language School and my time on the field.
