• 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!

Randomonium: Giving Thanks Edition

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  I’ve had a deep appreciation for it ever since a profound Thanksgiving service the first year we were married.  I have mentioned it a number of times, but if you’re still interested, the details are here.

This morning, Kelsey outdid herself by mustering up enough cinnamon rolls to feed an army.  Not having an army, instead we fed them to our tribe and to the Engles.   It was a rare treat to have (almost) all of them in one spot – Lou, Therese, Jesse, Josiah, Jonathan,  Gloria, Jacob and Samuel Judah. Only Christy Joy wasn’t able to make it.

We love Lou and Therese.  From 2007-2008 I directed TheCall for them.  It was a very fun season.  I had an incredible team, faced challenging, fun tasks, and a lot of travel. It was not without difficulty…Lou can be a moving target, but if you can get the trucks and the gear and the bands and the vision in the same venue on a given day, the results are out of this world.

I feel like we have the best of both worlds now – we are with the Engles multiple times a week, and I’m not worrying about how to find a forklift in a random venue at 3am.  Win/Win.  Add cinnamon rolls and I’m very, very thankful.

After the Engles left, we finished getting ready for our evening meal with John & Tracie Loux and their tribe.   We have hung with John and Tracie since 2006, when we each had three kids.  Since then, they added three and we added four.   You can do the math.  Take off your shoes if necessary.  It was not a quiet evening meal, but it was full of thanks.

After they headed home, we fired up the video projector for a wall-size showing of UP.  Is it my imagination, or does the guy from UP look like Chuck Colson?  I’m just sayin’.
