We’re Thankful For You

Posted by:

We’re so thankful for being co-workers with each one of you who make up our prayer and support team, and together with you, to make disciples of all nations. This last year-and-a-half has been the toughest time of our life and your partnership has been something God has been using to keep us going.

Happy Birthday to Kristia

Posted by:

Birthdays are a great occasion to celebrate around our house. This year is especially important because we have been through so much together.

Although gifts are special, the thing that is really important is spending time together. This morning several of us took a walk together. Kristia and Katrina went out for coffee after lunch.

In a few days I will be heading out to Costa Rica for another missions trip. My role will be very similar to my role in Thailand. I will be working with a group of nine children with ages ranging from 0-5. We will be doing Bible stories, crafts and games with them in the mornings and afternoons.

Wait God?

Posted by:

I came home this year with the intention of saving up for MTC (Mission Training Center), the rest of the New Tribes Mission training. For the last few weeks I have been going through the application process for the training program. I couldn’t imagine any problems happening.
