2022 was a challenging yet rewarding year for our family. As the new year begins, here are just a few highlights from each month of 2022. January – Experienced plenty of NW Pennsylvania snow and cold at the end of our furlough time. Packed up and began saying goodbyes – the hardest one being to […]
“For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, even penetrating as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 We have been privileged these past couple months to see the […]
…of our Home Assignment travels, that is!! Since June, we have been on the road just about every weekend visiting different supporting churches, family and friends.
