Drawing us Near…

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4

When someone says the word “trial,” what image comes to mind? How about the word “sorrow” or “grief” or “tears”? I, for one, conjure up in my mind a battle. A fierce fight with men falling to the right and left of me. Or I picture a cruelty of life, some injustice that bursts open someone’s bubble of a “good life.” When I think of hurt, of pain, I ...

Different.

Posted by:

We’re here!!!

Our first month in Tanzania has been exciting, draining, beautiful, blessed, challenging, normal, smooth, surreal, hot, and many more things all at once. And it’s been different. Different in many, often small, ways…

We still sit down as a family for dinner, hold hands, pray, and enjoy a meal together. But it’s different. There’s more rice and beans, more tiny little fish with their eyes and tails and everything (which both our boys ate and actually liked), more mangoes and ...

Youth Retreat

Ruth (on the left) and I took a bus trip out to the east side of Paraguay to help with the games for a youth retreat among an indigenous people group.

80 Youth filled the church building which is in the background

They had a great time together.

And the weather was beautiful and naturally hot.

Ruth and I slept in the tent which was snuggled under this roof due to evening rain. What you can’t see are the holes chewed in the tent ...

Today working among these young missionaries coming to the field with all the new tools I am amazed with what God is giving us ...

From Winter to Summer

Wow, it is hot! They were our first  words when we arrived in Asia Pacific. We stayed in Korea from Dec. 08 to Jan. 31 to get work visas which allow us to do Christian work.

In Korea, we were able to get refreshed by meeting with friends and families, and eating Korean food. 🙂

Then we arrived in Asia Pacific on Feb. 2nd.

We came back to the world of summer from the middle of winter. What has been ...

A Culture Game

Posted by:

When you’re confronted with a world of unknowns, where you have no idea what’s going on around you, I find it’s often helpful to try to find things that remind you of something you know.  That way the new things have some kind of place they can rest in your brain.

 

These last few days we were in Vigueland for a wedding, and there were lots of unknowns going on around us.  Often we had no idea what was going on.  ...

Update on Rachida

Posted by:

Thanks for your continued prayers for Rachida, and sorry that I haven’t posted an update in a long time.  With them being in the next country over it’s kind of hard to figure out what the new news really is.  But today I have an update, so I’d like to share it with you so that you can be praying.

 

We talked a week ago Sunday, and Rachida’s grandma Kadi said that the treatment there in Mali is going ...
