As I was sitting around a dining table filled with members of Rome International church this past week, I was listening to their testimonies and the impact that the church plant has had on their lives. The stories they shared poured fuel on the already passionate fire that has been … Continue reading May Newsletter
Joy in Obedience. When Chris and I first started pursing our ministry in Rome, I think the most terrifying task before us was the idea of finding partners to be part of our ministry. Here we are though, just past another whirlwind trip packed with meetings, and I can’t help but think of how much … Continue reading April Newsletter
When Chris first mentioned the possibility of us moving to Oklahoma I’ll be honest, I was not very happy. Most every Texan knows the age old saying “I may not have been born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!” That’s how I felt about Texas, I just love my “home” … Continue reading OklaHOMEa
I think the question Chris and I get asked the most is "are you nervous, or scared?" To be 100% honest, right now the answer is no. That seems a little prideful, doesn't it? Let me back up.

For some clothes, its easy to decide whether to keep them or not, because they are badly … Continue reading January Newsletter
Bus Ride Blessing The bus was packed with people, but Chris and I had to squeeze our way on if we were going to make it back to our host home. We were the proverbial sardines in a can. We were hot and sweaty from trying to navigate a city we didn't know, and frustrated … Continue reading December Newsletter
When Chris and I first started looking into missions, one of the first questions we were asked was "What people group do you feel called to?" Our answer? "We don't know!" How can we pick just one group of people? Today, we finally have an answer to that burning question, and our people group is … Continue reading The Answer.
This past week has been a whirl wind!! We spent two full days with our kids in Disney for a much needed family vacation after a busy summer. Watching all the girls experience Disney world was priceless. Even if we did essentially become pack mules during the last leg of our trip. In our last … Continue reading Where Will We Go?
