Question: What happens when two missionaries get lost in a foreign country with no map, a non-functional GPS, and no cell phone? Answer: God does what He wills. (Alleluia!) Last night, Amanda and I spent some time with all the fabulous folks from St. Tomas parish in Roermond (NL) for […]
“A voice cries out: In the desert prepare the way of the Lord!” (Isaiah 40:3). Welcome to Advent, everyone (albeit a bit belatedly, but welcome all the same)! Advent is all about preparation; it’s a time the Church—in her infinite wisdom, guided by the Holy Spirit—has set aside for us […]
Let me tell you one thing about our life here: it’s amazing! God is continuing to show up in so many uncountable ways—I love it. Our life is about to become a whole lot busier (at least externally…I feel like we’ve been busy since we’ve arrived here!) in the next […]
I find myself in a rather odd predicament as I’m writing this blog: I don’t know what to say. Just to clarify, this is new and different. Words are a big deal for me. My life seems to revolve around saying things (or not saying them, or wishing they were […]
We’ve had amazingly full days since we’ve been here in Germany; I’ve been a little surprised, actually. I think I expected to have to wait around more until things “got going.” Here’s lesson number one of missionary life: God does not wait. He wastes no time diving right in if […]
The last time I blogged, I mentioned how much of a whirlwind our first day in Germany was; and it hasn’t stopped since! There has been so much to see, so much to do, so many people to meet, so much to pray about—I really don’t know where the day […]
Hallo from Süsterseel! It’s been a whirlwind three days since we’ve been in Germany, and God has wasted no time in showering down His blessings on us. Dank sei Gott! (Alright, that pretty much exhausts my German vocabulary at the moment. But, if all goes well, we should be starting […]
“I just want to be in your heart, I just want to be in your arms, moving ever closer to your heart.” Miller was just playing that on the guitar (thanks, Miller!) as I’m sitting here in our converted classroom/conference room/office/lounge, and it beautifully sums up what I’ve been praying […]
First off, an apology for this prolonged period of silence; time always seems to escape me here at Covecrest! I can’t believe I’ve already been here for 3 weeks; time seems to have fast-forwarded from when I left California. At the same time, there seems to have been so much […]
Hello from Camp Tepeyac! It has been a crazy month of camp, but God is moving in big ways here. Glory! If you’re wondering how this Covecrest missionary ended up in Prescott, AZ, there is a one-word answer: obedience. Chris asked Carla and I a while ago how we felt […]
