hey did we mention Sweden?

Hi friends! I’m popping in to ask for prayer as e is away on another mission trip. This time he is in Sweden training, speaking and ministering to the Chinese from Nordic countries. This trip is very much like the last couple trips. If you didn’t hear about them before, this post will give you […]

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 […]

oh, I should mention…

We’ve had a busy few weeks around here. Currently e is in the Philippines. I guess we should have mentioned it earlier and asked for your prayers. Actually, he didn’t have time to send a “proper” prayer letter until the day he left. He’s going with two others from our church to partner with a […]

strangers on a bus

Last week I started my new job. In a set of circumstances only God could orchestrate, I am now gainfully employed. I got to choose my work hours so that I can be home when the kids get back from school. I also planned my hours so I can still attend my women’s bible study. […]

processing, processing

What a week we’ve been through. Our family watched many hours of tv covering the bombings, manhunt and eventual arrest. There is a small amount of relief in the apprehension of a suspect. Lots of questions remain about the event. Perhaps in time, we will get answers. E and I have been pondering how people […]

the slow ascent

Hello. I am laughing to myself about the tone of peace and calm from the last post. I certainly don’t feel that today! We are in conference/retreat/travel season around here. From now until the end of March at least one member of the family will have attended two conferences, two retreats, one out of state […]

clothed in scarlet

It is a rare occasion that I feel (note: “feel” not “am”) like the Proverbs 31 woman. After sending the kids out in 30 degree weather, this verse came to me. She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet. Proverbs 31:21 I don’t know the significance […]

getting our bearings

If I had my act together, I would have wished you all a merry Christmas a few weeks ago–or even covered up the delay with a “Happy New Year!” Oh well, life isn’t punctual and picture perfect. At least mine isn’t. Maybe you are awesome enough to have a timely and perfectly styled life. Instead […]

a dream or a nightmare

The past few months, the land behind our property has been undergoing a transformation. Previously this land was a neglected site filled with trees, an abandoned foundation and whatever the owner wanted to dump. The land was purchased by a developer and he is in the process of doing an extreme makeover. We have watched […]

recent encouragement

The other day the family and I video chatted with my mom. We got to show her what’s been going on around here and the first snow fall of the season (only a week after the superstorm, crazy!). In return, she showed us the progress she’s been making since her stroke. My mom’s been walking […]
