Often the task to which we are called is beyond our capabilities. We lack the strength. We lack the endurance required to complete what we set out to do. The further we have gone down this path towards Ecuador, this path of missions, the more I have realized just how true this is of the … Continue reading Weary Hands
Recently I was asked what my favorite part of itineration has been. There are so many good answers to that question because there are so many wonderful things that we have been enjoying as a family over the last month of this new journey. I could have said I am really enjoying the extra time … Continue reading God Is Working
The past few months has been a season filled with a lot of lasts. The last Christmas in our beautiful home in Sandy. The kid’s last birthday parties with the friends they have known all their lives. The last road trip in our beloved minivan as a family. The last time hosting a church life … Continue reading Lasts & Firsts

God is amazing and blessed us with a great deal on a very nice 2013 F-350 Dually. It should be capable of pulling just about anything we … Continue reading We got a truck!

It was breathtaking, in more ways than one at over 15,000 feet in elevation where we could drive to. We had an amazing time … Continue reading November 2017 Trip – Day Eight

But we arrived in Quito to spend some time with the Penley family and are very much looking forward to that. Once we landed in Quito the Penleys picked us up and we had a great … Continue reading November 2017 Trip – Day Seven
We got to attend two different churches today in Cuenca. First we went to Centro Christiano de Cuenca which is a pretty large church that was founded by AG missionaries Bill and Connie McDonald. A lot of construction teams from the states have come down to work on this building, it is a beautiful church. … Continue reading November 2017 Trip – Day Six
Another day in Cuenca, and it was a good one. The weather didn't cooperate with our plans, but we adapted and had a great day anyway.

Day four in Cuenca was another day of work. Thom and I headed to the station after breakfast and got right down to business. This was the sunrise that greeted us: I did take a quick minute to go upstairs to the studio during the live broadcast and grab this video so you all could … Continue reading November 2017 Trip – Day Four
