Kisha was another child of German-American marriage and divorce. Her father grew up in the Bronx, a borough of New York City, and joined the Air Force at the age of 19. While stationed in Germany, he met Kisha's mother, a German, and they married. The marriage was a violent one but lasted 13 years. During their second tour to Germany, they divorced. By that time, Kisha's father had introduced her, at the age of 13, to a life of clubs, drinking, drugs and sex. At the age of 15 her best friend was a witch. Her father continued serving in the military in other parts of Germany and Italy, eventually retiring and remaining in another part of Germany. Kisha was left behind with her German mother but her life was overcome by drugs, alcohol and witchcraft. She often drove by Heritage Baptist Church in Mehlingen on her way to work. The church seemed to call out to her to stop and attend. One Sunday she stopped and entered the building. It was “Friend Day.” Dr. John Goetsch, the executive vice president of West Coast Baptist College, was preaching a revival meeting. He was accompanied by a team from the college. Kisha gave her life to Christ and found joy and peace that she did not have for most of her adult life. These stories are just two of many that could be told of the work of God among the grown children of Ameri- can soldiers—children left behind near mili- tary bases around the world. è Garry and Karen Craft serve as missionaries to the Military. He pastors Heritage Baptist Church in Mehlingen, Germany. Kisha and son Justin
