Life on the Mission Field

We are back in Nicaragua and we will be here for a while. How long, you ask? Well, we aren't exactly sure. We still have a house in Texas, though we won't step foot in that house until August of 2017. For now, we are just taking it a year at a time, believing the… Continue reading Life on the Mission Field

Future Presidents of the World

Sometimes working with kids can be hard. They are squirmy, loud, messy and have incredibly short attention spans. We try to teach them life lessons and all they want to talk about is pizza and the latest cartoon. It can be a challenging, up-hill battle, but it is one worth fighting. You see, this year… Continue reading Future Presidents of the World

Waiting on the Lord

For the past month Way of the Cross has been hosting a Missionary Training School at our base camp in Nicaragua. We have had about 45 students who have been going through intense classes and hands-on learning.

For the first month of our time in Nicaragua we were busy with groups, work and a lot of evangelism. We had a large… Continue reading Nicaraguan Life

If you follow us on Facebook, you already know that we are trying to build our ministry team. We want to get 100 people who will be committed to praying for us and giving $10.00 a month. You may be wondering why we chose these numbers. When Phillip first suggested it, I said "you know that would… Continue reading Building a Team

Nicaragua for Jesus (from the eyes of a missionary family of 5)

In case you haven't heard, we are in Nicaragua. I know, I haven't been good about posting, but recently I've had a good excuse: we haven't had internet. To be honest, not having internet has been quite enjoyable. Now not having AC has been a bit more of a challenge, but who said being a… Continue reading Nicaragua for Jesus (from the eyes of a missionary family of 5)

What’s Going On and What’s Coming Up

Well it has been much too long since my last post! God is richly blessing our family and we are so excited about what He has for us in the next few months. But before I talk about what is to come, let me give you an update on what's been going on. In late… Continue reading What’s Going On and What’s Coming Up

Nicaragua Med-Fest Part 2

If you missed part 1 of this post you can read it here: Nicaragua Med-Fest Part 1 During Med-Fest Phillip was busy, as usual, running back and forth making sure everyone was busy and everything was running smoothly, but when the kids got sick (all running fairly high fevers) I found myself at a standstill. I… Continue reading Nicaragua Med-Fest Part 2

Nicaragua Med-Fest Part 1

We've been home from Nicaragua for nearly a week now and we have been busy catching up on our rest and getting settled back into our routine. A trip like that is hard on the family, but worth it when you look back at all the Lord did. During the pre-trip we stayed very busy preparing for… Continue reading Nicaragua Med-Fest Part 1
