Please allow me to open with this disclaimer: this post may seem unrelated to this website and the mission field. However, it's important to remember that mission work is carried out by people and families who have many of the same needs as any other, ie: spending quality time together. One of the primary purposes … Continue reading The Renaissance Festival: The follow-up

In addition to our typical homeschool curriculum, we've added classes on the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Knighthood.

No matter what, help me never to deny You, but always follow You faithfully." Hadassah prayed a … Continue reading Thoughts on the cost
This Fall when we arrive in Uganda, Africa, we will be received by the staff of Youth With a Mission (YWAM) Arua.

Since leaving Gillette, Wyoming following the Picnic in the Park, life has been a bit of a whirlwind. We have shared much of our stateside journey already, so I’ll jump right into our trip here in Mexico. We crossed the border in Laredo. For anyone looking for a mission field within the United States, … Continue reading Michigan to Guadalajara and 4,000 miles in between
And so, the countdown begins. In exactly six days from today we will be driving across the US-Mexican border (deep breath... and exhale...) But do not worry about us. The hours we have put into preparation, planning and research have been countless. We even bought this book: As it turns out, driving across Central and … Continue reading Less than a week to go!
