The office staff at Mission Discovery spend most of their time behind the scenes. They are the voice on the other end of the line when people call our office. They meticulously go through paperwork and make sure all the details are straight before our project coordinators set foot on the ground. They truly are the heart of Mission Discovery.

Each year the staff in the office are encouraged to go into the field for at least one week. It is good for everyone at Mission Discovery to connect with what is happening on the ground. It also gives the office staff a better understanding of the projects that they talk about on a daily basis. Stephanie Cook has worked in the Mission Discovery office for over ten years. This summer she chose to go to Ft. Blackmore, VA for her week in the field. As an added bonus, Stephanie was able to have her husband and three children join her. For many years Mission Discovery has offered family mission trip opportunities, but this was the first time Stephanie and her whole family served together.

Stephanie says she was overjoyed when it finally happened. She had dreamed about serving as a family with her husband and three girls for eight years. At the same time, her mother’s heart began to ponder new questions about the trip. She wondered how her girls would interact with the people. How would God
