This is one of my all-time favorite photos Ive ever taken in Madagascar, near the village where we worked on the east coast, about a year after we first moved to Madagascar. Looking forward to being back in Madagascar in just a few weeks!

This is one of my all-time favorite photos I've ever taken in Madagascar, near the village where we worked on the east coast, about a year after we first moved to Madagascar. Looking forward to being back in Madagascar in just a few weeks!Leaving the village of Antenina at 6:30am yesterday. This is the river where we'd go to collect our water and bathe every day and wash our clothes. A beautiful place! (The village is off to the right.) ... See MoreSee Less

Today was our last day at YWAM Ozarks.  Weve had some great goodbyes (starting last week!) but its sad to leave here.  This was a great place and a perfect community for us during our time of sabbatical.  They welcomed us so openly and we were able to join in as staff with all the activities and regular schedule here, but we also had time and space for good rest and just to be ourselves.  Through it all, God really did what he was speaking to us in prayer before we even considered taking a sabbatical, that we would be restrengthened in the body of Christ.  His plans are always better than our plans. Thank you to everyone at YWAM Ozarks (including those who moved on before us) for helping make that happen!  Well miss you!  (But youre welcome to come visit in Madagascar!)

Now we visit our families for the next couple weeks before heading back to Madagascar

We're enjoying a short trip to St Louis this weekend, visiting some of Lora's family and some friends. We're also looking forward to being with DeSoto Community Church of God tomorrow morning! We'll be sharing a bit during the morning service and enjoying a nice lunch with the church afterwards, so if you're in the area, you should come out! ... See MoreSee Less

When Things Fall Apart

Sometimes, even in ministry, everything just falls apart.  The foundation has crumbled, the walls have collapsed, the seed has rotted, and the sprouts are choked by weeds and burnt by the sun.  Sometimes by the end, there’s nothing to show for our years of efforts.

Working for a Harvest

Like our friends in the fields we must always be alert and ready, mud sticks in hand, for what might devour what we’ve sown. We must always keep watch and reinforce any weak parts of the fence. And like them, we must fight this battle together…

A Light In the Darkness

Our headlady told us about the time the spirits which possess her forced her to run halfway across the island on swollen knees, running so fast that no one could catch her, then made her crawl around on all fours and start acting like a cow.

Children of God

Our children have become some of the regular village kids. They squat nearby as they watch a man build his canoe. They gather in the crowded cooking hut with all the other village kids to eat a plate of rice and sour mango salad…
