What an awesome God


I will be brief, Our God is an AMAZING God!  Him working through your prayers and support have gotten us here. THANK YOU so very much!  We fly out bright and early tomorrow morning for Swaziland.  One way should be a scary place to be, but we have never been more comfortable knowing that our future is UNCERTAIN.  At peace, filled with gratefulness and gladness, and ready to see Him in a new and exciting way.


Just a reminder- the below links are great ways to get ahold of us/stay connected(our selfish request to have a bit of “home” to stay in front of us!).  The Children’s Cup image/link will tell you all about our partnering ministry, the facebook and twitter logo’s and links will give you a glimpse into life(good and bad) as we social network with our friends, the blogspot image/link will be a great way for us to share a few pictures and tell a few stories of what YOUR prayers and support ate doing in Africa(also, current time, temp, and audio streams), and the Podcast link is going to prayerfully be a growing way for us to have the locals tell you THEIR stories.  (subscribe via itunes by searching “Childrens Cup”, or use the link below to check back often)


PLEASE keep in touch, we covet your prayers, and truly desire to know what we can pray for for you as well!  It really will be vital to our success to keep the familiarity of friends(you are family) alive-even from a short distance.  Thank God for technology!


Sale Gahle- be well!

Mixed drinks?

Yah, that is kind of what we feel like.  1 part ecstatic, 1 part sadness, 1 part uncertainty, and ½ measure of joy.  As we leave a ministry we absolutely LOVE (Mission of Mercy and Bethesda Christian Broadcasting), to pursue our dream and His dream…it is just a mix.  Shaken, not stirred.  Every once in a while a different ingredient seems to separate and float to the top. We are comforted by His word and Promise.  He has a plan for us… who are we that HE would have a care and plan for us?  We are His beloved-amazing to think of a God that loves you SO much, and knows you by name.  Feeling blessed, unworthy, and oh so much more…. What a mix! (yes, i talked about Jesus and mixed drinks at the same time.. no offense intended)

A bit of fun

As we said goodbye to our friends and co-workers here at Mission of Mercy. We were made to “dress the parts” as “prairie missionaries”. Complete with an offering that weighed in at 40lbs. Everyone brought their spare change and we collected $249.20 along with a sore back. You can not tell, but the shirt is VERY wrinkled, and the glasses are as old as Mark Pluimer!

(pics- us, the team, and char giving a healthy "AMEN/HALLELUIAH" to the offering)
