Can You Feel the Love?

3 Comments »

After returning from Telephone, Israel had a short three days work-week before we headed to the Jernigan home in Muskogee. We spent three days with the family in Muskogee. Hannah and Ash arrived from Australia on September 24th. Besides the few hours we saw them before heading to Telephone, we hadn’t seen them at all. And since we’d never met Ash, it was very important that we get to know him. Israel is the older brother, after all.

A Visit to Texas

8 Comments »

Just so you know, the photo header is not Texas. It’s Arkansas. I took it on the way back from Texas. I felt obliged to tell you. You know, just in case you decided to move to Texas just from looking at that photo and then were really surprised when it wasn’t hilly and green.

Last week, Israel took a couple days off so we could head to Texas to see my family. It was a crazy-busy weekend, with not as much family time as I wanted, but we got to see a lot of people, which was the point.

Israel’s sister Hannah has been in Australia for two years studying at the Hillsong International Leadership College. While there, she met her soon-to-be-husband Ashley, who we call Ash. They came in on Thursday evening, so we headed to Muskogee to see them. It was so good to see them. They were exhausted, of course, but when we arrived everyone was playing Apples to Apples. It was the first time the whole family, all 14 of us, had been together in almost two years. Friday morning, we went to IHOP for Ash’s first American breakfast. I’m sure he was very impressed.

How to Pray

1 Comment »

We greatly appreciate your prayers. They make a huge difference. Here are some things you can pray for over the next week.

Support – That God will bring 100% of our support in by October.
We’re at about 14% of our monthly support or $765. Now, not everyone has told us what they will be giving and not everyone has sent in their paperwork yet. So this is not an official number. We need 80% of our support in order to book tickets, but we would prefer to have 100%. We just found out that we will be living in an apartment one town over from Kandern, where the school is. This means we’ll need a car. At 80% of our budget, all of our living expenses are covered. At 100%, a car is covered. We are still praying that God will provide our support by the beginning of October, but it will definitely take a miracle!

Felin, the Wonder Cat

4 Comments »

I think one of the hardest things about moving to Germany will be leaving behind our cat, Felin (pronounced Fa-LEAN). We got Felin from a shelter in April. Israel thought she was the coolest cat he’d ever seen. I thought he was weird. But he wasn’t, he was right. She is the coolest cat. Ever.

In the past six months, she’s become my little companion. What will I do without her? Sniff.

Weekend Happenings

8 Comments »

The past two months have been busy, and this week was no exception. Israel’s brother, Judah, stayed with us for three days, which was wonderful. We’ve been sharing with a lot of Community Groups from our church about our adventure to Germany. And we spent the weekend hanging out with friends. But, before I tell you all the details, I want to give you an update on our support raising.
