About Us

Morgan8x4

We are ordinary people. We love to watch movies and play European board games. We homeschool our only child though we long to have more. We lived in our little house and were content.

We had not planned to be missionaries. A few short years ago, we did not even attend a church. We did our own thing and kept to ourselves. We felt like something was missing and wanted a community for our new baby boy to grow up in. When our son, Jayne, was 3 we found our way to Grace Evangelical Free Church. We fell in love with the church and Christ. The 2 of us dove into the Bible and after a couple of years of intense study, we felt God wanted us to go into the mission field.

A year later He showed us ReachGlobal during a sermon. The site looked great and we felt that it might be a great organization to look into when we decided to make that step. God had other plans for us. One simple question about how the missions process works resulted in our applying. We applied earlier than we had ever planned, but God continues to confirm his plan for us.

God laid the foundation for us in so many ways. We went to school for animation with no idea what we would use our degree for. We won a video camera in an advertising contest that we had no use for. A decade later we are preparing to use our previously unused skills to help people connect with Christ and His Churches. He also surrounded us with new friends and a church family that have been essential to our to our lives and as we prepare to enter the mission field.

God is working in amazing ways through so many ordinary people to see his plan for our family come together. We have had so many surprises! Our house sold in July 2013, even though it wasn't on the market and we continued living in it, as renters, till April 2014. There are people advocating for us as we work tirelessly on support raising. So many people are praying for us as we enter each stage of our journey. We look forward to seeing how God provides for us through people we know and those we don't.

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
