What a Puzzle: Perplexed but Not Driven to Despair

Today marks the one-year anniversary of when we arrived out here in the Wild West. What a journey it’s been. And not just our 3 day drive across 7 states while Mitch was stricken with hives. Sometimes it’s felt like Covid dictated our lives in the past nearly 2 years. Sometimes it does feels likeContinue reading “What a Puzzle: Perplexed but Not Driven to Despair”

Once Again…

Ya’ll knew this announcement would be coming sooner or later. I’ve always constantly been looking forward to my next mission trip. That’s right, I’m stepping out in faith and heading back to my beloved Ukraine this summer! While the official dates have not been set in stone, I know that it will be around theContinue reading “Once Again…”

Achieve Camp

Last week, I had an incredible opportunity to go to Camp Bighorn in Montana to be with teens and adults with special needs. Over the course of the four-day camp, we took them through a ropes course, rock climbing, zip-lining, rafting, horse-back-riding, and swimming! We played games, made some crafts, and created lifetime memories. ThisContinue reading “Achieve Camp”

Bounjour, Paris!

Well, it has definitely been a wild, crazy week. We left Opole Lubelskie last Monday, everyone packed tightly into our crowded van. We left early and drove several hours into Germany. Once there, we discovered that our alternator was dying. It was, in fact, pretty much dead. Miracle of miracles, we somehow managed to driveContinue reading “Bounjour, Paris!”

Roma Kids Ministry

So, luckily, I still get to do my favorite part of ministry while in Poland. Playing with kids! This is definitely an area where God has gifted me; I love coming and playing with them no matter how much work we’ve already done that day. We can’t understand a word each other says (they don’tContinue reading “Roma Kids Ministry”
