Through Their Own Eyes

3 Comments »

I love this video. It’s Black Forest Academy students expressing what the school has meant to them. It really gives you an idea of what missionary kids deal with and how BFA affects their lives. I hope this helps you understand why we want to invest in these students. This video was created by Michele Phoneix. She has been teaching at Black Forest Academy for 16 years and first came to BFA as a student.

The Journey’s Path: Part 3

Comments Off on The Journey’s Path: Part 3

I think this next step in my journey was pretty important, and still is. I am probably going to struggle with feelings of not being the provider for my family. I know I’m supposed to trust God, but I’ve been trying to be the provider for so long now, it’s how I think.

So, I’m praying that God helps me to see that He is big (Proverbs 30) and that my eyes are opened to the flawed pursuit of stability in wealth.

This next post I wrote after Dani and I mentally decided to go to Germany. We were still seeking God and trying to figure out if this was the right thing to do. I didn’t want to go through with this Germany thing if I didn’t feel God was leading us in that direction.

Now it totally feels like God is opening all the doors for us to go to Germany.

Introduction to doing video posts

4 Comments »

Thought I would share my first video for our new blog, hopefully I will get better at filming myself. It’s kind of weird at first. 🙂

I’m going to try and make the videos pretty organized and give a general description of the content.

This video is simply an introduction to the website, and a short reading from a Bible passage that’s pretty appropriate for where Dani and I are headed in our lives. We shouldn’t try and limit what God can do, He can handle it.

The Journey’s Path

Welcome to our new blog!

Over the past month I have been writing about our process, my walk with God, and our journey to Germany. I’ve been writing in anticipation that, if we felt God leading us to go to Germany and we eventually got a blog up, I would share my journey with those who might support us, who are family, or who want to just know why.

Happy Day!

Yesterday, I got an email from Kristi, the Personnel Supervisor at BFA. She said, “The Chaplain’s Assistant role is being officially offered to you. Are you willing to accept that role?” I promptly did a little dance. Well, a mental dance.

I found out about the Chaplain’s Assistant position when we interviewed with Kristi at 6:00 AM one Thursday morning. For me, it was the best part of the interview. The job sounded perfect for me, a wonderful blend of planning, event execution and relationship building. But, someone else had originally planned to fill the position and they didn’t know whether she was coming. Yesterday I found out that the position was mine! So now, I will split my time between video and working with the Chaplain. I’m am so glad that this will be part of my work at BFA.
