What would you do if your children told you they decided to move to a foreign country to save children who are victims of human trafficking? Ron and Cissy Boyer’s children Drake (then 12) and his sister Elli (10) conveyed that message while on a reconnaissance mission for their church. Ron and Cissy heard God’s calling to move to Southeast Asia becoming full-time missionaries with ZOE International.
