    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!

Randomonium – Reflective Edition

It’s been a whirlwind week, with speaking at FCF on Sunday then the banquet in Colorado Springs on Tuesday night.  Muddled thoughts are thus:

Given that I was sick, I was pretty content with the Sunday efforts.  The PM service didn’t go as well as I’d wished, mostly because I was ready to drop.  Nightwatchers, my apologies.  I’ll do better next time.

We took the twins to Colorado with us on a flight early Monday evening, arriving in Denver around 8:30pm.  Until we located a car and some grub, we didn’t drag into our hotel room in Colorado Springs until nearly midnight.   Upon opening the windows in the morning, I found myself looking at Pike’s Peak.  Not a bad wake up call.

I love Colorado.  I live on one of the highest points in southern Kansas City and on a clear day, I can see the BP station.

It was uber-cool to see former Call team members Alysha and Allison show up an hour early for the banquet, feed babies, hold babies, and generally make our lives easier.  We love these two!  Thanks for making the trek, girls!

In between all the meetings, we snuck a drive to Garden of the Gods, which is Native American for “Large, scattered rocks 5 stories tall”.  Pretty impressive sight.   We also ate some impressive Mexican food, including blackened Mahi Mahi tacos with mangos on top.  I love me some Mahi Mahi and mangos.

Wednesday night we parted ways with our travel buddies, Luis and Jill Cataldo, as they flew to Ohio and we returned home.  Managed to leave Kels and twins at the airport while I went to get the Suburban from economy parking only to realize that I left the keys with Kelsey.  Duh.   Made a 15 minute process a 30 minute process.  Worker harder, not smarter.

Glad to be home.  Glad to be talking adoption with a lot of people. Glad tomorrow’s yard sale will move some of our treasures into others’ garages and attics.

  1. Re: the Sunday night service — For what it’s worth, I was massively provoked and encouraged by it. Zero complaints… it’s hard to imagine a “doing better next time”!

    Thanks for sharing of your time and energy with us.
