The Least of These

I’m sure many of you will relate when I say, I can’t believe it is already October! This last year has been flying by and it will be 2019 in no time. For us, this holds particular significance, because in April 2019, we will have been in Belgium for two years. I never dreamed as […]

Tanzania

As many of you may know, Lindsey and I went to Africa last month! We were asked to help lead a team from California there because we are so much closer than other leaders in the States. So we went to Arusha, Tanzania to work with Convoy of Hope Tanzania at a couple different program […]

Calling All Prayer Warriors

Last week was an amazing, unexpected, and much-needed time of prayer and encouragement for Zach and me. New Hope Church sent their young adults team on their very first missions trip (yay!!) to Brussels, Belgium to work with us! First, let me take a moment to express how humbling and honoring it is that they […]

Good to get away

So far this year there has been a whole lot of planning. We brought in our directors from Moldova and Slovakia here to discuss in further details what we’ll be doing in those countries and some of our team flew to Bulgaria to meet with our partners there. The surprising thing about planning is how […]

Smile. This is Where I Find My Strength

Some of you know that we have had our ups and downs since we have been here. The big picture of God’s work in Europe is exciting, impactful, and inspiring – but when you zoom in on the day-to-day grind of office life and seemingly insignificant challenges, it’s not always so beautiful. During these times […]

Longest Night

John 1:4-5 says, “Life itself was in him, and this life gives light to everyone. The light shines through the darkness and the darkness can never extinguish it.”

Here and Now

This last week Zach and I had the chance to walk through cathedral of Notre Dame, and view it stunning stained glass windows, its incredible architecture, and beautiful paintings and religious relics. We waited in a long line that went out the doors and began in the square. As we entered, I saw informational items, […]

Just an Update

It’s September now. Lindsey got back from Slovakia early this month and, other than a community event in Spain I will be going to at the end of this month, our traveling for the year is slowing way down. The rest of the year will be spent planning and coordinating what will be done next […]

Wait, Watch, Pray

As I sit here in Poland’s international airport waiting for my connecting flight to Slovakia, I can’t help but be reflective over the past few months. Zach and I moved to Belgium 4 months ago on Saturday and it seems like a lifetime ago. Since moving we have helped with community outreaches and missions teams […]

Here and There

We hosted a missions team from Southeastern University in Brussels a couple of weeks ago. They were doing normal missions trip things, like renovations, prayer walks, and service stuff. Now, you may not know this about me, but I have actually never gone on a missions trip before (I think it’s a testament to how […]
