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.

The Journey's Path: Part 2

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


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!

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.

Help Us Do the Impossible


At BFA, school started on August 25th. Since we’re already running late, we’d like to be there as soon as possible. But there’s no way we can do that without your help. Seriously. Not lying about that.

Because 90% of BFA’s students come from missionary families, the school tries to keep their costs as low as possible. This means that all of the faculty and staff at the Black Forest Academy are missionaries and must raise their own support.

Our Needs

We need to raise $5,418 a month.

Wow! That’s a lot right? Where does all that money go?

The Big News!


The Big News!

We’re moving to Germany! To be missionaries! As soon as possible!

Yep, it’s true.

We have accepted positions with the Black Forest Academy as the Communications Coordinators. The Black Forest Academy (BFA) is a boarding school for missionary kids in Kandern, Germany. One of the main reasons missionaries come back from the field is because there are no educational opportunities there for their children. The Black Forest Academy provides a high-quality education for missionary kids while allowing their parents do the work God has called them to. As their mission statement says, “Black Forest Academy provides a quality, international Christian education that equips its students to influence their world through biblical thought, character, and action.”

Talking up a storm

Talking up a storm

So, the last two weeks have been full of applications, reading and interviews. I’ve been kind of overwhelmed at how busy I’ve been at night, simply filling out paper work. It’s definitely something that I didn’t expect to be as difficult as it has been.

I’m not accustomed to writing or talking about my thoughts as much as the last week has required. It’s been a challenge for me to relax and find rest, when I’ve spent my daily allotment of words in only a few hours.
