is this blog dead?

Last month, we were prompted by our web hosting service that it was time to renew our account. We paid to keep this space alive, just barely alive. I seem to have this approach to a number of responsibilities in my life. The once lush grass is being taken over by crabgrass and assorted weeds. […]

new expressions

We are experiencing something new around here: having only one kid in the house. Kids number two and three are spending 4 weeks with their grandparents. The story of why they are there is a bit involved. The quick version is that they are getting treatment for their allergies–in southern California while also getting spoiled […]

the world traveler returns

Thanks for your concerns and prayers for us. I wanted to share an answer to prayer: the lost suitcase has returned! Sitting here now, it feels silly to dedicate a post to luggage. Even still, I know that we ought to be grateful for everything. We are quite relieved that we don’t have to go […]

a mission trip to the Philippines

Hello again friends. I thought it would be more helpful to read about e’s trip to the Philippines in his words. Here is an excerpt of his email prayer letter. Who are you going with? I am traveling with Pastor Thomas Lee and Steve Liu, both from my church, Boston Chinese Evangelical Church. Where are […]
