A week in the life of…..

This week we have been working on preparing to go back to Nigeria.  Working on getting medical equipment, working on a container, preparing our Days for Girls things that we need to prep before we go back as well as a couple of meetings in the Pine River MN area. This week it has occurred… Continue Reading

All you need is love?

This week we are reminded of “love”, with Valentine’s Day being tomorrow.  I have had some pretty wacky thoughts about love this week and I’d like to share them with you.  We are at Dan’s parents’ house in Texas.  We have gone over to Mexico twice this past week as Dan’s mom had dentist appointments… Continue Reading

Partners in Ministry

This week has been very busy and I write this post today from our very own couch in our little house in Pine River.  We have had meeting after meeting this week and it has been awesome!  We have met with a non-profit that collects hospital supplies and equipment and donates them to missionaries.  We… Continue Reading

What does it take?

It was a Saturday afternoon on July 13, 1985. I was taking care of Andrew, an 11 month old and getting ready for a garage sale. While I priced and folded clothes and things I had the T.V. on. While Andrew was taking a nap, God used that day and that time to rock my… Continue Reading


I am sorry friends, we have not had much for internet the past two weeks. Here is what we’ve been up to: On Friday we saw the doctor for Dan’s leg. He determined it was getting worse and there was nothing more they could do in Gembu. He called his brother-in-law, who is a doctor… Continue Reading

Psalm 130:7 O Tina, put your hope in the LORD, for with the LORD is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. This verse has spoken to me in so many different ways this week. Of course, the Bible says “O Israel”. But this verse is a personal one for me. I have found… Continue Reading
