Update on Grant

Thank you for praying for Grant.  The Lord helped his oxygen levels to stay up last night so he got a real good nights rest and is doing well at the hospital today.  Apparently with the Lord’s help, the antibiotics are starting to kick in to fight his infection.  If he is able to stay off […]

Please Pray for Grant

I want to ask you to be in prayer for Grant.  We had to take him into the hospital last night because he was coughing alot, struggling to catch his breath, and wheezing.  This is the same thing he had about 8 weeks.  The doctor’s say it is a viral infection that has gotten into his […]

My Wonderful Family

I had one of the most wonderful days today because I spent it with the most wonderful people – my family. I praise God for my beautiful, faithful wife, Teri, who is always so supportive and loving to me and who takes such wonderful care of our children. Darci is 7.5 months now.  She is […]

Crisis in Kenya

Below is the text of an email that I got from the Robert Mickey family who are serving the Lord in Kenya.  I think this will be worth your reading it, praying for them, and helping to provide funds for them to take care of their people. It is difficult to put into words the magnitude of the […]

Pray for Tomorrow

I kinda slacked off on my visiting and outreach over the last couple of weeks with the holidays and my parents visiting with us.  I took advantage of the opportunity to have my dad’s help to do some much needed repairs to my house. This week, however, we started back visiting regularly.  We went out visiting […]

Loved This Post from Africa

I just read a great missionary post from Missionary Keith Shumaker in Burkina Faso about what you have to go through to reach people.  When I was in Peru, we had alot of moments when one person would buy a coke and everyone would pass it around and all of us would take a drink.  […]

Good Time Away

Teri and I did something that we have not done in 11 months.  We left the kids with my parents last night and went away to Carrickfergus for the night.  We had a great time together relaxing and talking.  We went to IKEA in Belfast this morning and then stopped by to visit with our […]

Holidays in Northern Ireland

The holidays in Northern Ireland are very similar with a few differences to what we are used to in the States.  Christmas is a very big time of the year for families and for shopping.  Because there is no Thanksgiving holiday here, the shops begin to put out Christmas decorations right after Halloween and they […]
