We’re in America!

Comments Off on We’re in America!

Yes we are! We arrived in Arkansas on Saturday evening after an uneventful day of traveling. We had a wonderful Sunday, full of some of our favorite places and people. Now we’re busy trying to make ourselves busy. We’re hoping to fit in as many visits with friends and family as we can.

We’ve changed some travel dates!

We had to change around our Oklahoma dates, so here’s our updated travel scheduled.

  • Arkansas – June 11 to 16
  • Oklahoma – June 17 to 25 (Tulsa on the 22nd and 23rd)
  • Arkansas – June 26 to July 2
  • Chicago – July 3 to 9
  • Texas – July 10 to 17
  • Colorado – July 18 to 24 (Based out of Larkspur, but planning to spend a couple days in the Ft. Collins area)
  • Arkansas – July 25 to August 7
  • Germany? – August 8

If you’d like to get together, give us a call or send us an email right now! We have very little scheduled at this point, so we’re probably even available for last minute things.

This summer, we can be reached at israelanddani@teachbeyond.org and well as by phone. Israel’s number is 479-966-9381. My number is 479-301-0150.

How can you help?

We would love your prayers over the next few months as we raise support. It would be fabulous to have a group of people praying for us every day. Some things you can pray for are:

  • Our diligence in connecting with people and seeking out new supporters
  • Us to be patient, kind and loving toward each other
  • God to bring in our needed support ($2,300 a month) by August 7th
  • That we would be a blessing to the people we interact with

We have couple practical needs as well.

  • We need a car to use in Arkansas from July 25th until we leave on August 8th
  • We don’t have very many new contacts in the States; we have been living in Germany after all. It would be great to invite some new people to join our support team. If you happen to love hosting events and bringing people together, we could do a game or dessert get-together where we share our ministry with your peeps.

We’re looking forward to connecting with many of you over the next few months! See you soon. Continue reading

29 Days Since

Comments Off on 29 Days Since

Well, it’s been another month since our last blog post. The five sentence post previous to this one doesn’t count, obviously. Usually, not posting for a month means that nothing exciting has happened, which is kind of the case here. Not much has happened on the support side of things.

Because I know you’re all dying to know, I’ll give you a brief overview of what’s been going on for us in April. Ready?

April 1st happened.

We knew it would eventually—the looming, self-imposed deadline. When April rolled around, we found ourselves not at 100% or even 80% of our monthly support, but at 53%. Well, it’s better than 25%. Moving on.

A Christmas Post

5 Comments »

Yes, I know. Christmas was five weeks ago. Today is February. It’s a little late to be posting about the holidays, but at least we’re not posting this in May. So, here’s a little summary of our holiday travels.

On Friday, December 18th, we got up bright and early and headed to my sister’s apartment in Denton, TX. We got in shortly after lunch and met Jude, the epileptic Schnoodle. Jude was a pillow of curly goodness, who happened to twitch occasionally. Israel and I have realized that we’re not really dog people. We don’t like the drooling and shedding and stinking and poop picking-up. But Jude doesn’t stink, doesn’t shed, and doesn’t officially drool (although he does have a beard). Unfortunately, as all living creatures do, he poops. Anyway, we liked him. If we ever get a dog, I think it might need to be a schnoodle.

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.
