Being domesticated

The last two months I've spent an incredible amount of time being domestic. I quit my job last summer so that I could more fully focus on our family and our work to raise support and get on the mission field. I wanted to be able to serve my family as best I could, to make their life at home a bit...

Update!

Mike visited Belize a few weeks ago to meet with the executive committee of the Presbytery in Belize, to discuss and determine where we will live and work.

Things to pray about

Mike and I will be attending I&O at the end of this month. It is an MTW training event, which should give us some much needed tools for our fundraising endeavors. Please pray for safety as we drive to and from Atlanta, for the logistics of others caring for our children while we're away, and...

homeless

  Through this whole process, Mike and I have been discussing whether or not we should sell our home. This might seem like a no-brainer to many of you, but it’s actually quite a complicated decision. If we sell, we have nowhere to return to when we are in the states, which means living out...
