5…4…3…2…1…Getting Ready for the Launch

4 Comments »

So I’m getting ready to launch the new BFA (Black Forest Academy) website! That’s what I’ve been doing during the beginning of this semester. Calling, emailing, talking, calling, emailing, talking, calling…that’s what I’ve been doing half the time. I’ve been collecting all the content, getting it updated, typed up, edited, and approved by all those involved. Hopefully by the time you read this post I will have most of the content ready to go, and formatted for the world to see. I’m really excited, and can’t wait to hit the launch button.

It’s been a busy last few weeks. The first week of school I had the flu. And over here, doctors don’t just hand out antibiotics for everything like in America. So I had to resort to the good ol’ juice-and-rest routine. After that I was able to start thinking clearly and got to work on finishing the website.

The Journey’s Path: Part 4

Comments Off on The Journey’s Path: Part 4

This is the last post about my decision for going to Germany, and the process that I went through. I’m sure there is alot more I could talk about, but these few posts were simply a way for me to share with you my journey. There will definitely be more about what Dani and I are both going through.

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.

The Journey’s Path: Part 2

Comments Off on 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.

The Journey’s Path

Comments Off on 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.

Help Us Do the Impossible

7 Comments »

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?

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

Comments Off on 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.
