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.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Indescribable

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
