I love missions! I love everything about missions. I love the fact that God uses mere mortals to participate with Him in His great Redemption Story. I love the joyful and miraculous idea that God invites His children to be a part of what He is doing around the world and in the hearts and […]

A few years back I took a trip around the globe seeking the Church. I was trying to answer the question, “What is the role of the North American white male in 21st century missions?” Nowhere did this question need to be asked more than in Africa. It was July. I purchased my ticket in […]

Trans-Siberian. Trans-Siberian. Trans-Siberian. I’ve never been diagnosed “officially” but I’m pretty certain I’m a bit OCD! Once I get my mind stuck on something, I really have a tough time changing focus. Even with that crazy dangerous Chernobyl nuclear stuff, I still wanted to go across the USSR by train.

I was a big, dumb, white girl from Kansas living in a city of 1.5 million Chinesers. In fact, in the fall of 1983, there were only about 15 foreigners total in our newly opened city of Changchun. I was there with two other women and we were the first Americans to teach at the […]

Second place is common in my life. I’m daughter #2 of my parents. I am wife #2 of my husband. Once I was in a competition in high school and I won…yes…second place. I wore a lot of hand-me-downs (second place clothing) as a kid and if you think about it, being a step-mom is, […]
