• Immediate Needs

    We do what we do as missionaries supported by people like you.

    We also prefer to give away as much content as we can, and not cloud that issue with a lot of public requests. That said, we do have specific needs that are met by people who believe the work we do has value.

    If you'd like a short list of immediate financial needs, you can find it HERE.

    Thanks!

These Truths I Hold to Be Self Evident

We’re on a super secret spy stuff mission in Washington for a day or two. Well, maybe not quite, but it feels that way, given the sudden nature of the trip. Back in the city for the first time since 2005, I am struck with the following:

  • Washington, DC is the capitol of the world. I know the rest of the world doesn’t like it, but decisions made here, for better or worse, effect the globe.
  • Driving in on East Capitol, my heart jumped when I saw the dome of the Capitol Building through the trees. Later, it did the same thing when I saw Trader Joes.
  • Washingtonians take themselves very, very seriously. As I’ve said before, they like to think of themselves as New Yorkers who can read. It makes for great people watching, and if my plan works I shall do some of that from the second floor of the Starbucks on Pennsylvania this afternoon.
  • This is a city where no one will ever stare at your Blackberry and ask “Uh, what’s that do?”
  • Gretchen Geverdt can whoop up a premier bowl of soup, well worth driving to Annapolis for. Plus, they have the coolest Legos.

  1. You ought to check out Mark Batterson’s church’s coffee house called Ebenezer’s. That was a horrible sentence…sorry.

  2. Oh. Gretchen. Jealous. Have fun. See you guys in a couple weeks. I’m moving.

  3. RE: the ‘Neze. I was actually driving in that area trying to Blackberry it this morning but got sidetracked….

    I think calling it The Neze makes me sound pretty local. Really.

  4. I find this really comical…especially the “blackberry” comment.

    Has anyone ever told you that they can get lost for HOURS reading your blogs??? If not, I’m telling you now. I mean, so lost…that they even blog about your blog.

    I’ll thank my husband later for introducing me to your “Stuff I Think.” Interesting.
