In Florida

A New Post! Wow!

Hi Friends,

For those of you who have been following our blog faithfully for the last 6 years, we apologize for not posting as often as we used to.  Since re-joining Facebook, we have posted updates about our life on there more, and less on this blog. But we do want to keep this blog active, so we will try to update it at least once a month.

Here’s a quick ministry update:

Since coming back to the USA last year, I (Micah) have stepped into a couple new roles with the mission that get’s me pretty excited. First, is the cool opportunity to challenge young couples & college students to serve overseas and second is to be involved in training new workers.

The pictures below are of us serving in both those roles. The first is of an event we had a couple weeks ago called “Global Impact” where we had a number of young couples and college students who are very serious about serving overseas come learn more about our org.

The second picture is of me visiting a local cross-cultural school that specializes in teaching sustainable agriculture. We may partner with this school in the future to better equip some of our workers who are doing agriculture projects in Asia.

Thanks for checking out our blog!

Traveling…

Hi Friends!

Sorry it’s been so long since we’ve updated the blog. As we’ve settled into life & ministry in Florida, we haven’t carved out time to keep the blog updated like we have in the past.

Part of Micah’s new ministry responsibilities demand that he travel a little bit more. In the last month he has traveled to Virginia, Pennsylvania & California and he is headed to Russia at the end of the month! Would you be in prayer for his travels? As well as Katrina & the kids while he is away?

We are thankful for you! Thanks for checking our our blog, here are some pictures of Micah’s recent travels.

Happy New Year!

Hi Friends,

We hope you had a great Christmas & New Year! We’re back in Florida after being up in PA for about two weeks. Although we had a great time up north with family, we are very glad to be back. One phrase that has been repeated lately in our family is “Good to see you come, good to see you go!” We love our family, but there is a lot of work to be done with GSI, so we were glad to get back. We have a pretty busy schedule this year with trips planned in the US and overseas, a “pre-field orientation conference” that Micah is contributing to, and an important GSI fundraising dinner. And that’s just in the first couple months! 🙂

We’ve also plugged into a local church, with Micah taking the reigns of the music ministry & Katrina and the kids getting involved in AWANA. Our church is passionate about reaching unreached people groups in restricted countries, so we’re excited to get involved there and be a part of their vision.

We’d ask for your prayers as we get involved with all these things. We are thanking the Lord for good health & and the comfortable house that we’re renting. We wish you a happy & productive 2015! Thanks for checking out our blog! Here are a couple pictures of the latest happenings…
