Thoughts on this year…

I find myself ending my first year as a missionary in the United States instead of Guatemala.  I am continually being reminded that ministry can be done in many different ways. (If you are wondering, we will be returning to Guatemala in January. I am both excited and ready to return.) I am learning to stopContinue reading “Thoughts on this year…”

Perseverance, Dance, and Memories

Memories are special. I wrote this in August, the week I prepared a party for me students at Hope of Life to perform their dances.

One Small Step

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong. Maybe it is strange to use the quote of an astronaut jumping out of a spacecraft onto the surface of the moon to start this update. But I find it rather fitting and maybe I can convince you of the same.Continue reading “One Small Step”
