4 Weeks to Go and 4 Ways to Partner

So here we are… exactly 4 weeks before we are leaving on a jet plane to Romania! “What’s left to do?” you may wonder. “How are you doing?” many have asked. Several of you have offered to help. And most of you simply want an update on where we are emotionally, spiritually, logistically and financially. So that’s what today’s post is about! Just so you don’t miss it… check out our Prayer Calendar!

A video recap! 


We are so grateful we had the opportunity  to visit so many friends and family over the last month! Watch the video above to catch a glimpse of our travels. I wish we would have remembered to get a picture with everyone! Thank you to all of you showed us love along the way! We are driving back to KC now and will pretty much be there for the next 2 months before we move to Romania!!

Speaking of Romania… our boxes arrived to our new house! Thanks to Nicki and the team over there for getting them to our place! Things are getting real!

On The Road

Here we are driving down the road, Veggie Tales playing in the background and I have a few moments to think about all the people that have loved us and supported us over the years. Our histories span between south Texas to Arkansas, from Kansas around the world and back to Kansas again. Our story began in Missouri and has continued these past several years in Kansas. We’ve got friends and family scattered from east to west and everywhere in between. Pretty much every continent (except Antarctica) is home to a family member or a friend. And here we are visiting several of you on our route from Kansas to south Texas. Some places we’ve stopped for a week and others just a few hours, but we are finding contentment knowing we are with family and friends. Continue reading “On The Road”

The Reward of His Suffering

This post has been stewing for awhile… a long while! The video below has been quite an inspiration to us and we still get teary-eyed when we listen to it! We first watched this several years ago, and then recently Brett reminded me of it and mentioned he had some thoughts stirring in his head. So of course I asked him to write them all out for a blog post! Thanks sweetheart for taking the time to put your thoughts together in order to share with everyone!

A prayer for faithfulness

A wave of gratitude swept over me on Sunday afternoon. There we stood before a congregation of believers and not just any congregation… it was OUR congregation, OUR family of fellow Jesus lovers seeking to make disciples. As we shared about the journey God is leading us on, all eyes were on us and all ears were listening intently. We have such great gratitude for this group of people who have loved us and cared for us so well and continue to do so as we look toward the next chapter of our lives.
