StrokeMy dad had a mini-stroke a few days ago, and can no longer see out the right half of his right eye.

It is sobering to realize that my father is mortal.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  4. My mom had a mini-stroke everyone I’ve talked to says that she is fine but I’m so scared. I’m all the way in California going to college and I just don’t want anything to go wrong in my family. Please just pray for my family.
    Much Love,

  5. Dartanya,
    It is scary, even though they call it a “mini” stroke. As I wrote, for me, it gave me a realization that my dad will not always be there.
    I pray that your mother will recover quickly, and that out of this experience, your relationship with her would deepen.
