Neat twist to the topic!

One small thing - hangar is a repair shed or shelter for aircraft, I think you meant to type hanger. I pointed this out incase you decided to submit this somewhere else.

Blessings on your writing as you write for the glory of HIM!

Marilee, you write well.

One problem I have with this piece, though, is the many allusions to missionary life as being a marriage to God. As a rapidly-getting-older single woman who has been in cross-cultural work for 12 years now, I can speak for many of us who say that the struggle your main character has is something very real. For all that God is a loving Father - for any Christian - He can never be the flesh-and-blood life companion that many single women long for.

Here ends the lecture. Keep writing. You developed your characters well and had a good sense of 'place'.
