After 6 months in NM, we are finding out just how big a place ABQ is. It is located within Bernalillo county, which has a total area of 1,167 square miles, of which 1,161 square miles is land and 6.4 square miles is water (this beach lover can’t seem to find the water). The map shows a […]
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.
"New Tribes Bible Institute . . . is graduating about 75 students this year . . ."
School is officially done, and our one year at New Tribes Bible School has now come to an end. Like the rest of this life we’ve chosen, it’s a little bittersweet — so excited to move on, yet sad to leave the people we love. The suitcases have been dusted off, boxes packed, and our […]
Things are winding down at the school; we have only 1 class day, 1 test day, 2 work days, and then it’s all over. As usual, I have mixed feelings about it all. We’ve developed a few very close relationships with other students and staff here, and have seen many blessings since coming here. It’s […]
It’s been a busy time for us, even though last week was spring break. After Josh quit working we have been able to meet with several people and just get to know them. It’s amazing how much you really miss something until you suddenly have it again. We’re entering into that period of transition that […]
God has been doing some amazing things around here, y’all! A couple of weeks ago Josh spoke at our Wisconsin church’s missions luncheon; we passed around prayer cards and a sign up sheet for our email updates, talked about what we’re going to be doing, and got to meet many new people. We’ve really wanted […]
This has been a challenging couple of weeks since we got back up here. While we were in Florida, it was easy to forget my worries and just go with the sunshiney flow of life; but everything came back to me when we returned to Waukesha. At first I dealt with it by not dealing […]
Y’all! I am so out of my element up here. It is VERY COLD (like into the negatives… ugh), there is snow and snow salt everywhere, I can’t take a step without sliding, and usually have more than one pair of mittens on at a time. I used to laugh when people said that peoples’ […]
Happy December, and Merry Christmas!! We’re officially down to the last week of classes, and I think everyone is struggling a little bit to stay focused and finish strong. The freshman class (aka, us) has almost no homework for the rest of the semester, which is almost bad considering that it feels like Christmas break […]
