We discussed this and prayed over it since February, but it felt like the move happened so quickly. We could not move without job security for Chris, and he found a company back in February which he greatly desired to join, but it felt like a waiting game until mid-September. Here’s the flash-bang of it…


Happy August 18, 2017

We’ve been “home” for 1.5 months now, but yesterday was the first time that I heard: “You look happy”. Chris and I were sitting at a table in his mother’s kitchen, where we’ve been having breakfasts together and occasionally working across from each other on various projects and tasks. I knew what he meant, even…


Chau July 3, 2017

Tomorrow we board a plane at noon and make the 13-hour trek back “home”. We’ve been slowly saying goodbye to everyone and everything we hold dear here, and whether we’re ready or not, it all ends tomorrow. Nomad We enter again into that ever elusive nomadic life where home becomes wherever we spend the night…


Silence May 10, 2017

It has been 71 days since I wrote a newsletter to be mailed out. It has been 116 days since I last published a blogpost on this site. What prompted this period of silence? In my previous post, I talked about our field conference and how Chris and I are struggling. Life did not get…


Carry January 14, 2017

Last week we spent 5 days out in the desert. Our SAM Bolivia missionaries piled into a bus and a few cars, we climbed up and down the foothills of the Andes for 5 1/2 hours to get to a camp and retreat center where we would intentionally build relationships, reflect, and pray. These beautiful…


Mirage December 28, 2016

This time of year is always difficult as social media is full of pictures of friends and families gathering to celebrate the holidays, having feasts full of foods I wish I could taste again. There are a few phenomenon that happened this year which surprised me: I’m shocked at how painful it was to watch…


Refugio November 13, 2016

Since the school year started back in August, I’ve been in a continual process of evaluating all of my responsibilities. I’ve prayed through the needs of our school and whether or not some of my responsibilities can be delegated to other people who are more capable or available at the moment. Essentially, I’ve been learning…


Emphasis October 21, 2016

Next week, our school enters “Spiritual Emphasis Week” where each morning, grades 7-12 gather in the Chapel for the first period and we focus on a spiritual topic. Chris and I had the privilege of planning it this year and we are stoked about it! It’s a lot of details and coordination, but we’ve created…


Vessels September 21, 2016

Today I did a thing that I don’t do often. Every Wednesday, we hold Chapel at our school. There is a Jr. High Chapel during 4th period and a separate Sr. High Chapel during 5th period. I usually sit among the students, and I help to lead the worship team–but that’s the extent of my…
