Missionary Monday ~ Meet Carole Shull

Name – Carole Shull
Field – Greenland
  1. Please share your missionary call.  As a teenager I surrendered to go wherever God would lead… and He led me to Chris.  I have always believed that I should follow my husband whether it is across the state, country, or the world!  We took our honeymoon to Greenland in 2000 and we have been “On Top of the World” J ever since!
  2. What do you miss most about the states? Family. Grocery stores with many varieties of things at reasonable prices!
  3. What food do you miss from the states?  That depends on what day you ask me J I miss peanut butter cups, and fresh vegetables! 
  4. What do you love most about your field? The people.  And I also love the slow-paced life in an Arctic village.
  5. What is a typical meal in your culture?  Whale soup or seal meat.  Mattak is a favorite here, that’s whale skin with the blubber attached.  It’s eaten raw and the Greenlandic children prefer it to candy.
  6. Say something in your language, then translate“Guutimummi suut tamarmik ajornanngillat!”  “With God all things are Possible!”
  7. What are some things you do to help your children not forget family back in the states? We talk about family a lot and Skype them often.  Our children love seeing their grandparents.  However, we can’t use video too often because of the high-priced Internet here. 
  8. Please share your favorite Bible verse, or one that has been an encouragement to you.  I Peter 1:7
  9. What have you found to be the biggest challenge on the mission field?   The loneliness and isolation.
  10. Name one thing God has taught you on the mission field.   To rely on Him.  He is all we need.  We’ve been through some difficult times and there have been times we’ve felt forgotten by everyone, but God is ALWAYS Faithful.  He has opened many doors and performed so many miracles for us.  When we get discouraged we need only to look back to what God has brought us through.  This always encourages us!  Our motto since arriving in Greenland has been “With God all things are Possible” and He has proven this true time and time again.
