Dragonfly

Just got back from Nebraska. I was there for a class that was really amazing, but I was glad to be getting back. The drive was absolutely gorgeous!

At this stop, I picked up a hitchhiker. I wasn’t aware he was there until I had moved down the road a ways.

Poor little guy kept trying to climb up the glass. I eventually pulled over just to let him out.

The clouds and sky were so fluffy. I always keep an eye out for bad potential tornado-forming weather, but that wasn’t a concern today.

It’s great to be home!

Happy Birthday L!

Took a dear friend out for her birthday tonight. Amazing pizza at this little place (Yia Yia’s) in downtown Lincoln. We couldn’t decide, so we ordered two and split them. They were a Mediterranean and a Veggie with broccoli. Both on a delicious whole wheat crust that still tasted
good the next day.

Our Call

This is from David and Sarah’s blog. It explains how their call to Chad came about. Prayers for them are greatly appreciated! (Or monetary support if possible – monthly, however small, is better than a lump sum.)

Going Where He Sends Us

We would like to share with you how we got called to go into the mission field, and basic information about what we’ll be doing in Chad once we go out.

Sarah and I (David) had been dating through our last year of college at Andrews University. I was in the aviation program, having already finished my requirements for a French Studies degree, and Sarah was finishing up her Dietetics degree and preparing for her upcoming internship. I was at a crossroads in life. I knew that God had put the desire to be a professional pilot in my heart, I had known that ever since I was a little squirt.

As I was looking at the jobs that pilots do, however, I grew less and less interested. Commercial pilots can be gone 3-5 days at a time, and it’s a long and hard road to seniority where you get…

Goodbye Girls!

Since February of 2008, I’ve been working at a church nursery. It’s a church I grew up playing harp for so the relationship has actually been much longer. When I started, there were 2 regular children – ages 2 & 5. The now 8 year old is no longer coming down to the nursery. (Although she popped in today.)

But it’s time for her to grow up a little.

The (almost) 11 year old is still down here regularly due to health issues.

But the church has stopped growing. These are the youngest two members. The time has come to join with another church. So after a drawn out process, a new church has been chosen. They are all moving together however. But not me. Today is my last day. I’m glad they were both in here today. I’m going to miss them both quite a bit.
Goodbye my girls!

Off to Africa! (but not me…)

My middle brother and his wife are moving to Africa. They’re not leaving for several months, but this will probably be the last time I see them for a couple of years at least.

So while they’re all sleeping (David and Sarah are the two in the middle), I’m sitting here thinking about how much I’m going to miss them. While they’ve been living across the country, they have only been a quick text or phone call away. Not anymore. Now it will take planning and coordination to communicate.

They are going as self supporting missionaries in Chad. David is a pilot, Sarah is a dietitian. To learn more about their joys and struggles, check out their blog.
