Life, Kids, Sun


A way to help

Hi Friends,

As you’ve probably noticed over the years, we don’t often post about the ministry we are involved in. It’s mostly about our kids & life in Russia (now Florida). But, today we want to share with you about an important project that Micah has been working on.

One of the new ministry jobs Micah has is becoming familiar with all the business & community development projects that our workers are involved in in Asia. There is a great project going on now in North Asia with homeless, deaf street kids. The workers there are providing them with basic needs like food, clothing & education, as well as sharing the gospel and loving them like Christ would. Some great stuff is going on, but they are in desperate need of funds to keep it going. Micah has written a crowdfunding campaign through indiegogo. Go check it out and please donate if you are able!

Thanks for checking out our blog!

This girl is such a little firecracker.

She definitely likes to push things to the limit to see how far she can take it.

She has the cutest little laugh, especially when being tickled.

Keira is very good at saying thank you.

She loves both her siblings, but acts like a little mommy with her baby brother.

This girl has a very close relationship with her thumb.

She is really funny!



We love you Keira Joy!


What a great time we had in Missouri! The last time we visited was about 4 years ago. So it was long overdue for us to visit friends there. It was a real blast from the blast bringing back all the memories we had from our time at the training center. We had a great time with lots of friends who I didn’t get pictures of.  But you know who you are and we loved spending time with you.



Dave and Carolyn Meyers are some great people and mentors we have known since Bible school and we were able to spent some time catching up with them.

Did you know Batman drinks from a sippy cup?


We ended up buying a van! It was a great deal from some great people!


Since we bought a van in Missouri, we were able to get our ticket money credited and not lose our money, so we could drive it back to PA to pack up before we head to Florida.  Micah and I both have aunts in Ohio, but we haven’t seen his for quite some time. We drove 11 hours in one day to get there and visit with his aunt and cousin and also her children for the evening. The next day we had just a short 5 hours to get back here to Pennsylvania.
