I am so very proud of and blessed to know the Jim Roberts family to India. The following is taken, with permission, from their facebook. What an awesome story of how God transfers the heart of the parents to the children! If your children love the Lord and the mission field it is often because of what they sense and see from you. They do not learn as much from your words as they do your actions. It is caught not taught! Read and be blessed!

I just had to share this before my heart explodes!! Tonight while Elijah was taking a shower Jim and I heard him singing in the shower. We stopped to listen and were overwhelmed at what we heard. Elijah was singing a song he had made up about coming to India. Then the second verse was about telling the Indian about Jesus then he moved on to singing about seeing them in heaven…then all the sudden you could hear him just a crying. After a minute of crying he would start his song over again and cry some more. Jim and I both stood there with tears in our eyes!! We let him finish his shower and when he came out I ask him if he was okay and he burst into tears again! I asked him what was wrong and he said “I am just so happy, Mom!!” I said “Why is that?” and he answered “I am just so happy to be saved and living in India”. I don’t think I could have asked for anything more at this point!! I sat on the bed with my arms around him and thanked the Lord for a husband who was willing to lead our family to India and a GREAT GOD who can speak to even 7 year old hearts!! I am so proud of Elijah and I am excited to see how God is going to use him in India. I LOVE MY LIFE!!! – with Jim Roberts.
If you notice a coldness in your children take time to evaluate yourself. Especially your spouse but also your children are often a reflection of what is going on in your life!
