I remember my father showing his slides of India...he too came back with such a new zeal for a land still unknown to me. Touching story.

I love your attention to detail in this piece. It is very well-written. I would have been wiping my eyes even as the little boy walked to the platform and grabbing another tissue during the middle of the song. Awesome job portraying a family in turmoil about changing their whole lives to follow God's call.

Good story, I am sucker for any story that's titled "My Daddy". Good job.

You did a wonderful job of capturing the essence of young Timothy.
And yes, my eyes are moist.

Very sweet!

I was waiting for a little bit of conflict, or something unusual to pull me along into the story...but sometimes a cute little kid is all you need!

I agree that this small child is enough to make this story a fun and enjoyable read. Stories don't always have to have intricate plotlines to be good. Sometimes having the simple leading of a child is all it takes. :)
