This Fall when we arrive in Uganda, Africa, we will be received by the staff of Youth With a Mission (YWAM) Arua. We have been in contact off and on with these guys for about four years now, since we first believed God was calling us to Uganda. We have enjoyed getting to know them … Continue reading YWAM: Our Family

A lovely detour

It is hard to believe that the year is almost over! 2016 has been an incredible year, full of laughter and tears, disappointments and victories, sorrows and joy. And God has met us every step of the way. As some already know, our plans have changed slightly in that we have temporarily returned to the … Continue reading A lovely detour

Cute Challenges to writing an update: or “From point A to point B”

As I write this, I am hiding in a corner at the YWAM base (our internet access location). Earlier I sat up to a table in the community area as I composed the first draft.

Less than a week to go!

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!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!

I was just following the GPS

Thank you for all your prayers and support! We have safely made it to Michigan. Please continue to pray for us during this time as we visit with parents, brothers and sisters and raise additional support. Along our journey across the USA, I learned one very important lesson: Never trust the GPS. Traditionally I have … Continue reading I was just following the GPS
