Becky and Katy Yuschak loved their life in Cranford, N.J. They lived in a nice, safe neighborhood across the street from their aunt. Their parents, Karen and Paul, were successful and provided a nice lifestyle for the girls.
But then God gave Karen and Paul Yuschak a heart for the inner city.
“I felt betrayed,” remembers Katy, when her parents announced they weren’t just going to serve the inner city of Elizabeth, N.J.—they were going to move there.
“When we read our Bible lessons, God always said he would give us the desires of our heart,” Katy continues. “We were sacrificing for Him by … taking a Saturday and going to give soup to people, so I thought God would honor that. But instead, He was like, ‘No let’s move to Elizabeth; let’s give up everything you have.’ “
