God has been blessing us abundantly above what we have asking for or expecting. Once again proving to us how much greater His plans are for us than we can even imagine.
While some of these blessings may seem small to some people they have been huge to us. Often we will spend years developing relationships before we see any financial partnership. This time around we have seen some immediate fruit. WOW! And we have gained new friends on top of that. There has been such sweet fellowsh...Read Full Post »

So I am going to try something….posting /blogging about our coast to coast trip. Thursday morning we began our trip. First stop Kerrville, TX (a mere 1300+ mile), where our sending organization (CTEN) has its home office. It has been great to see in person our new pastoral care couple (Bob and B Nesbit), stay overnight at their home, pray together, eat together, and sleep in a bed (Thursday night we were in the car all night). We also got to meet Sherri and have a chance to chat with Ri...Read Full Post »

Here it is already the middle of September 2010. Can't believe the year is almost gone and this is my first post. Keeping up with face book....visit us there, but really bad about this website. I got a little discouraged when I saw noone was visiting, but am back on track now! Tim, Suz and I all have facebook accounts. I am much better with pictures and posts there.
Suz is already several weeks into her Senior year of high school. I can't believe this is her last year here....Read Full Post »

Now that our time is winding down here in the States, I have been reflecting on our US visit. What a blessing it has been!! We have been refreshed and blessed by family and friends along the way. We've had so much fun visiting new places and making new friends. Suz and I dipped our fingers in the Pacific for the first time ever. We went to the Grand Canyon for the first time. It was a coast to coast adventure!! I will try to download some of our pictures during our last week here.Read Full Post »

We had so much fun the other night!!
We spent the first part of the day walking around the Thurmont "colorfest" (this is a local yearly craft fair event where hundreds of vendors display their wares). We ended up picking up 3 new snowman ornaments for Christmas and another bell Christmas ornament ... I hope the cats don't discover that it is a bell or it will be a lost cause keeping them away from the tree... lol. Suz also picked up a pair of Christmas cat earrings which she...Read Full Post »

After 2+ weeks in Florida we are beginning our rounds. In the last 2 weeks we had the blessing of being able to share about the orphanage in 3 churches. A missionary Alliance church in Titusville, FL, at our home church East Coast Christian Church in Merritt Island Fl and a United Methodist Church in Port Orange FL. The last church was kind of a divine set up from the Lord.... we were visiting Tim's sister and family and we went to her church just to have a chance to worship in another US chu...Read Full Post »

I just received news that a classmate of my daughter Christi was killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan. He was 2 classes ahead of her in High school so we didn't know him well. His name: Lance Cpl. Jordan Chrobot. Another friend posted a page honoring him on facebook. Here is a post on the facebook page set up for him. Although I have been corrected in calling a Marine a soldier (by those I support) I think it was so well written that I wanted to post it here. Our prayers go out to the fa...Read Full Post »

Praise the Lord, we have arrived in the US safe and sound.
It was quite an eventful journey. Our friends picked us at our house and loaded the car with our bags and stuff. When we went back to our friends house their dog felt the need to "mark" my leg. It was an experience I hope won't be repeated any time soon, but it was also funny. Thank the Lord that Suz had an extra pair of pants so I was able to change and wash out the dirty pants.
So...6 hours down t...Read Full Post »

For those of you in the U.S.; church here in Cameroon can be a challenge, to say the least. The sound system often distorts a tough to understand sermon, the music gets so loud that it can give you headaches and it can last for many hours. Very different from what we know and love in the States.
It had gotten so bad that Suz and I decided that it might be more profitable to help out in the childrens church. No less quiet, mind you, but at least I understood the message (only...Read Full Post »
