I will turn 30 on Saturday. Every year on my birthday I read Psalm 90, which has long been my favorite Psalm. It reminds me of the briefness of life, and encourages me to live each day in light of eternity. Psalm 90:12 says, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a […]nothing?
“Rome wasn’t built in a day.” It’s an old adage reminding us that great things take time. I would also add that Rome wasn’t built alone. Great things take a team.

Please Pray: – That we can continue to persevere in learning language – That God will give us comfort and encouragement as we are missing our family and friends – That God will provide the right partners for us and that He will give us wisdom and peace in the process – That we will have […]nothing?

Here’s an update I wrote on the plane. I’ll send one about being here soon!

“I’m so excited to eat these!” Ty giggled as he walked ever so carefully, balancing a cup full of the most exciting cereal he’d ever seen. The bright red, blue, yellow and green circles promised to be the best thing ever to cross his 3 year old lips. I know he thoroughly enjoyed those fruit […]nothing?
“But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest.” — John 4:35b In this verse Jesus is talking about people who are ready to receive Him, and saying that the time is now to go witness to them! This verse is so true of much of Papua New Guinea. […]nothing?
