• Immediate Needs

    updated 8.29.11

    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!

Year End Wrap Up

I’m sitting in my dimly lit office listening to the rain that blew in during the wee hours of the morning.  We had some remarkable lightening strikes around 5am that, combined with a to-do list that has gone untouched during the onething conference, prompted me to get up and enjoy the quiet working hours when I could find them.

It’s been a tumultuous year. I’m quite confident the life we’ve chosen, the world we live in, and our penchant for doing the unconventional will make this year seem calm in the light of years to come, but right now, as the sun goes down on 2010, I’m reflecting back and thinking “Whoa. A lot happened!”

Of course, the kids grew. It’s more quickly noticeable on the little ones, of course, but I’m watching my big guys turn into men, which is an entirely different and wonderful adventure.

The Zoe Foundation and Hannah’s Dream really both came into their own, with full-on staff and capabilities that I don’t think I fully imagined on 1/1/10.  We are so grateful for the  two teams God has put together to promote adoption as a positive alternative to abortion and then to do the mechanics and ministry of the adoptions themselves.

I read the Bible through twice from July until now. I’m more grateful for scripture than ever and look forward to NTx12 starting tomorrow!    Join me!

A good number of people stepped up to help with our Big Hairy Audacious Goal. The full goal was not realized (yet) but neither was it guaranteed, thus making it big, hairy and audacious.  We’re still committed to living that way. You can see all the days that were sponsored here.

Thanks to all of you who have contributed to our lives in the past twelve months, either by partnering financially, praying for us, or even leaving a comment hear to reassure us that we’re not alone in our fervent believe that when Jesus shows up, everything changes.

Happy New Year, friends.

  1. I’m joining NTx12. I’m the mother of 2 small children and one on the way, and I’m a little overwhelmed with this idea… but I’m doing it! :o) (I did the first reading today so now I have a little buffer in case I need it.)

  2. New Year Blessings to you and yours!
