It’s early in the morning. I’m sure it’s morning because Mama has awaken me to care for my sister although it is still dark outside. I have a piece of bread and take tea. Sister is tied in the sling on my back where she will stay all day. As soon as I finish eating I wash dishes with the very little water available. The water will be used again so I must be very careful not to waste any of it. Mama will leave for work and we won’t see her again until after dark tonight. She is a hard worker. I am not sure what she does but she comes home very tired and some days sad. Some days she has been mistreated, but it does not matter to her so long as we get a meal of sukuma wiki and ugali. If there is not too much […]
When I was officially diagnosed in December 2013 with Stage IV Colorectal Cancer and was told that it is inoperable and incurable I was momentarily taken aback. I did not believe that this could be true because we still have so much to do for the Lord and so much vision that we have not yet completed. During the course of the next several days and weeks as I sought the Lord I asked Him what my role in this journey is. He spoke to my Spirit and simply said for me to be faithful and obedient. I promised Him that with His help and His Grace that is sufficient I would try to remain faithful and obedient. There are some days I feel neither of those things! But because He is good and gracious He helps me in those times. One thing we had planned before this attack on […]
What an incredible time we are having! We had our final preparation meeting for the upcoming mission trip and everyone is so so so super excited!! We still have so much to do before we go. We have object lessons to get squared away, lesson plans finalized, craft supplies gathered up, and all the materials printed & collated for the Pastors/Leaders Conference. WOW!!!! It’s all good though. This is normal for any mission trip, especially one with such a diverse itinerary. Jerry & I are so amazed at how this trip is turning out! Other than Jerry, myself, & Arden no one else who is going has ever been out of the country for a mission trip!! God is up to something and something GREAT!!!!! Please keep us all covered in prayer! We still have a great budget need! We trust that God is moving in this area even now. […]
April 28, 2014 Yesterday we had a BBQ fundraiser and it was a great success. We still have a ways to go, but we are getting there!! We are so thankful that God has called us to this life of missions.

We pray you are blessed abundantly!!!
We need your help!!!! We are in the final stages of fund raising for our Kenya Mission 2014. We have had some challenges in this area since my diagnosis late last year. We have just physically been unable to do any events for fund raising. So, here we are now.

We are taking donations right now of hamburger buns, chips, and soft drinks. Please let us know if you want to drop some of these items off or we can pick them up.

This trip will take Jesus […]
