The McCropders Turn 3

November 2007 marked the official decision to pursue working as a community of families, after years of pondering and joking about it. Thus, we have crossed the 3-year mark, and thought we would post some photos to commemorate it.

I'd love to hear more about the "pondering and joking" and everything else that led up to your decision to work as a team. Had each of you already decided to head to the mission field? How did it all come about for each person/couple?

You are all so blessed to have found a group of people who share values and ambitions. I'm sure there have been trials, but you seem to be a great family group. You are in my prayers. Rachel, you are amazing...
Love, Hilary
