MK Then and Now


Where Are They Now?

Ever wonder if the featured missionary kid in our MK Profiles still loves mac and cheese or still wants to be a lion tamer when he or she grows up? Each month, we’ll give “Where Are They Now?” updates on MKs we featured in the 2000s. We hope this will be a lot of fun and will provide children with a better idea of how their prayers today make a difference in the lives of MKs for years to come.

August 2018 Ideas

August: Lygia Lovelace's Testimony

I chose to make Jesus my Lord and Savior when I was 9 years old. I was always active in church. I was even a GA and an Acteen! The things I learned in GA and Acteens influenced my heart toward missions.

I dearly loved my GA leader. She loved us, too, because she also taught us when we became Acteens! When I was 15 years old, our youth group at church went to a missionary commissioning service. As I watched the new missionaries stand and make a commitment to missions, I felt God calling me to be a missionary, too. I have never forgotten that calling.

My husband, Ken, and I served with the International Mission Board for 4 years as church planters in Portugal. Today, we serve with the North American Mission Board as church planters in St. Louis, Missouri.
