Buy-Our-Stuff Sale

2 Comments »

Come one, come all, to the amazing Buy-Our-Stuff Sale! That’s right folks, we’re hoping to sell all, or at least most, of our stuff this Saturday. We’re opening our apartment up for you to rummage through. We’ll be selling furniture, dishes, linens, books, DVDs, CDs, appliances and other random things. We’d love for you to stop by and take some stuff off our hands. You might even be able to name your own price for some items. And hey, by buying our bookshelves, you’re helping us get to BFA.

Come by our apartment, 2753 N. Ida Lindsey Drive, Apartment 4, Fayetteville, AR, on Saturday, November 14th from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM and we’ll point out the best stuff to buy. If you need directions, give me a call at 918-287-8014.

Also, keep BFA in your prayers. They have quite a few students who are sick with the flu. At least one student is being tested for the Swine Flu. Pray that there will not be a Swine Flu outbreak at BFA and that those who are sick will recover quickly.

An update on our support is coming soon!

Memories of Germany

4 Comments »

Today, I read the blog of a BFA staff couple. They serve as dorm parents and have two young children. Looking through their photos reminded me of what it was like to live in Germany as a kid; we lived there for about a year when I was seven. A few of the photos on their blog made me think I was looking at my family from the 90s, in our glorious purple, pink and black jackets and head socks, these wonderful fuzzy tubes of fabric that my sister and I wore on our heads. These may be called tube scarves in real life.

So, in honor of being a child in Germany, I thought I’d recount some of my memories. Here I go.

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!

Why BFA Is Awesome for Families

Comments Off on Why BFA Is Awesome for Families

We’ve spent a lot of time over the past few weeks sharing with people in Northwest Arkansas about BFA and why we’re so excited about going. On Sunday we shared with our church. As I was preparing, I realized how wonderful BFA is for missionary families. I think the idea of boarding school can be kind of difficult for some people. I know the first things that pop into my head when I think of boarding school are some rich parents who don’t want to deal with their children, so they send them away to boarding school. But that’s so not Black Forest Academy.

As I’ve read through parent testimonies about BFA, I’ve realized that there are so many reasons that missionary families might decide BFA is the best place for their kids. Here are a few.

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.”
