Enough about the Building Already!

Yes, the building project seems to have taken over our lives from your perspective but, God has blessed us with other ministry opportunities along the way.  New friends have quickly become family. Jessica will share with you about it. Continue reading Enough about the Building Already!

“Fire at the building!”

It’s 5:40 am. I’m sitting in the truck getting ready to head to the building to put the last coat of paint on the stairs before the workers return from their week off. All of a sudden my phone vibrates. “Fire at the building” is all it says. I throw the truck in reverse and turn around. I race to the building the whole time crying and praying that everyone is ok. Continue reading “Fire at the building!”

Standing Out

We are able to see the finish line ahead and are definitely standing out on a major level in the community now. By God’s grace all will be finished in the next few weeks. Continue reading Standing Out

Our trials are God’s opportunity

With Jessica and the boys having their visas denied at the last-minute and my work permit already expired we have really had to hit the ground running to get everything in order to start our visa extension process a bit sooner than planned. Continue reading Our trials are God’s opportunity

Learning at His feet

Merry Christmas and a soon to be happy New Year.  As I sit home alone on Christmas eve I have a lot of time to reflect on this past year. From near divorce, to abandoning the work here to a 7 week separation from family we have had a year fraught with challenge, adversity, but most importantly, victory and growth. Continue reading Learning at His feet

Ephesians 6:11-17

11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

R.I.P. My Dreams

I have talked to many people who have said things along the lines of “being a missionary sounds so fun and exciting” and while there definitely are those aspects, that is not the whole story. I am sorry if it seems I am writing many negative posts in a row but I just felt the need to be real and share my heart. So often we feel the need to seem perfect and only share positive things but God is glorified in the trials as well as the blessings. They are what makes the good seem so good.
