“I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.” –Mark Twain This is true, for sure.  And I have to say – my traveling companions on this trip are pretty amazing.  I guess God created our kids with the knowledge that they would be … Read More

road trip

This week is a big week for us – Not only are we moving physically (as in we will no longer be living in Troy, but rather out of our van for the next several months as we travel and raise support), but our blog is also moving!  I know that for some of you, this is a bigger move! … Read More

To God be the Glory…

…great things he hath done! Big and little. Lately I have been in awe of all the “little” ways God has been showing himself to me.  Ways that can only be him, because there is no other explanation.  Things that in the grand scheme of life don’t seem like they (as far as that particular action) really matter.  But he … Read More

This morning I had the fun task of taking RJ to the dentist.  For some reason my youngest two have bad teeth – weak enamel or the fact that they only floss when I am standing over them glaring are probably the biggest reasons, because we don’t eat a lot of sticky, sweet things!  A couple years ago I had … Read More

This last week we spent time with friends in northern Maine, at a family cabin.  It was a wonderful time with many fun things to do, and we are so grateful for it!  I also learned (re-learned?) an important lesson as we decided to go hiking in Acadia National Park. My friends, Hannah and Christina, are kind of super hikers. … Read More

reminders

Isn’t it wonderful how God has created us with so many ways to be touched emotionally through all our senses?  I see my kids smile and feel like the world is right; I smell freshly cut grass and lilacs and it means new beginnings and hope; I feel the weightlessness of my body floating in the cool lake, and it … Read More

commissioned

As missionaries, we have been commissioned a few times in our lives.  The churches that we have come from have sent us out and prayed over us.  The actual definition of commission, if you look it up in webster’s dictionary is this:  “Order or authorize to do or produce something.”  Kind of generic in terms of things, yet in the … Read More

Ever have one of those weeks at a camp or a retreat, or maybe just time spent alone with God and you take in so much good stuff that you can’t digest it all at once?  That was last week at Delta Lake for me.  The morning speaker, Dr. Frank Chan from Nyack College and ATS, spoke into my life … Read More

Language Learning

One of the things that we conversed about with the Massos as we met last week was language learning.  There are a few languages in Mundri – the two main ones being Moru and Juba Arabic.  There is obviously not a Rosetta Stone for either of these languages (Juba Arabic is quite different form the more formal Arabic), and so … Read More

Woke up this morning feeling a little sad.  We had an amazing day with some of our team members that are here in the States right now.  We spent the entire day on Monday with the Masso family, mostly hanging out at Aunt Linda and Uncle Fred’s house as the kids swam in the creek and the adults (and RJ) … Read More
