We are having fun & making some fun memories on this road trip to visit family, friends & churches & some events. Thanks to everyone hosting us & making time for a visit! Folks have asked if we are getting enough rest. Yes, we are getting spurts of down time between it all. This past […]
One of the things we are so thankful for during our medical furlough is having time to visit so many people we have missed!!! 🙂 We had the privilege of visiting Canada last week where we got to share our story with our friends up there. My twin Victoria & Michael Zwiep hosted us & […]

After the Oshkosh Airshow, we came back to Rochester so Jon could get his socket (the fiberglass sheath that Jon’s stump rests in) remade at the prosthetic lab. His stump has shrunk quite a bit & he needs a smaller size now. It’s not unusual for the stump to change size & shape with […]

Today we had the privilege of surprising the graduating class at New Tribes Bible Institute in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Jon also had his first steps on a prosthetic leg this last week. See the video.
We leave Monday for Mayo and Jon gets fitted for the C-leg. So excited!! We'd also like to tell you about where we've been, how we're doing and how you can pray.
On the farm there is never a dull moment. But as we work, we both are antsy to "hurry up" to get back to Papua New Guinea to help our co-workers, having seen the great need for personnel on the field.
Jon flew the helicopter today!!!! The first time in over a year. Can't keep him out of the air! We are just so thankful to everyone who is still faithfully praying for us. Please continue to pray!
Jon flew today with his pilot Dad by his side. It was a milestone moment. Back in the air. God is SO good!!
