When Kevin's older brother, Justin, entered the mission field Trevor was just six years old.  The week that he entered the mission home, Trevor began to pray nightly, "Don't let the mission home burn down."  Obviously those prayers were answered because the mission home is still standing!  

On Facebook I used to post "Trevor-isms" which were funny, insightful things (like the mission home prayers) that Trevor would say.  You see, from the time that boy could talk, he seemed to know more about the world than the grown-ups he lived with.  Now that he's 11, those "Trevor-isms" have become scarce.  Until tonight.

Trevor and Kevin

Trevor said our family prayer and in it he sincerely asked, "watch over Kevin and protect him, especially if he goes to the wrong house and that guy doesn't like You."

It's a sad thought that there are people in the world that don't like God, and more so for a mother whose child is spending two years searching for people who want to know more, but will occasionally run into those folks who do not want to hear a message of hope, love and sacrifice. Apparently an 11 year old brother has the same concerns.
