Worth It All!

Posted by:

One of the hardest things we have ever done was saying goodbye to our friends and family and moving to another country on the other side of the world. As we struggled to learn how to relate to a new culture and a new language, we sometimes wondered: “Is it really worth it?”

Life as a missionary is not always the glamorous, exciting adventure that is often portrayed. Mostly it is hard ...

We have purchased tickets for our return to the Philippines! While it’s been wonderful to have a few months with friends and family and to reconnect with many of you, we are ready to get back to the work God has called us to.

Recharged and ready to go!

Posted by:

We heard stories from many veteran missionaries about “reverse culture shock”, and difficulties they experienced re-adjusting to life back the U.S., but in the back of our minds we thought “until three years ago, the U.S. is all we’ve known.

Not until we had spent a few days recovering from jet-lag, did we realize how much we had really become accustomed to life and culture in the Philippines. Simple things ...

Family Trip to the Tribe

Our PilotWhile my mom and sister were visiting, we were able to take our first trip as a family to one of the tribes  that we serve.

Coconut trees, fried computers and Ephesians 6

Posted by:

Yesterday started off like any other day. Quiet time, daily check in with all of our missionaries to make sure they are safe, breakfast… Then it started. We were getting ready to leave for the hangar to do some work in our parts room as a family when I got a text: “When is a good time to call?
