On our journey to get to South Sudan we have had quite a checklist of things that we needed to do and hoops to jump through. 1.  Decide what the possibilities were, then visit Sudan (not yet South Sudan) and Uganda. 2.  Fall in love with the team and the people in SS and accept the invitation to to start … Read More

What an amazing blessing we had today at the Church of the Nativity in San Rafael, California!  We had a chance to reconnect with an “old” youth grouper from Ithaca – Dan London.  He is the youth pastor at 5 Episcopal churches out here, and he invited us to come to the church and the speak to the youth group … Read More

Since being on this trip we have had the privilege of being in many churches.  Well, actually, that’s been our life this year so far as we have been traveling to raise support.  One of the downsides to that is the lack of in depth in relationship you have with the people you are worshipping with.  You may have friends … Read More

…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
