June 2012 Ministry Update

I love summer around here because of everything that happens. We even have an unexpected trip planned to New Orleans now! I’m excited about the ministry we get to do there, with youth and another local ministry that is there. I’ve never been to New Orleans, so this will be a new experience for me! I am looking forward to trying a famed beignet, too.

India is only a month out! I have a little team going with me, and I am excited about them experiencing India. If you would like to give towards the trip, the girls, or pray for us you can sign up here:  (more…)

May 2012 Ministry Update

May has been a good month! I hope it has been good for you too!

At the beginning of the month, I spent a morning with the MOPS (Mothers Of PreSchoolers) sharing with them about my little girls in India. I got to spend time with my family and some friends in Illinois this month, which was such a blessing. We’ve also been doing a lot of prep work around the office for our new staff member (Dave Johnston) and his family to move to Knoxville from South Dakota. We have two interns who will be with us for the summer, and our Staff Retreat is coming up very soon! I love the summer months around here – always so full of people and activity. (more…)

The British Are Coming!

The British are coming! The British are coming! Oh wait… they’re here!

That’s right, our British actors from London arrived late last night. We are very excited to have David and Michael here. They will be staying here for the next 5 weeks presenting the drama “Questioning Aslan – A Night with C.S. Lewis.” They will be protraying a fictional account of C.S. Lewis and a student, Tellar. Lewis and Tellar walk us through some of his great literary achievements: The Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity, and The Chronicles of Narnia. Teller is faced with the reality of God. This will be an amazing performace – check out the little video clip of the actors on our website.

We will have 10 different venues where this drama will be performed. If you are interested in learning more, check out the Infusion Ministries website:

That Gut Feeling

Do you ever get that gut feeling that something just isn’t quite right? Or maybe that it is very, very wrong? I believe that God gives us that discernment to keep us safe, and that it is wise to listen to it. I very recently had an experience with just such a gut feeling.

I have been looking recently for a new part-time nanny job to supplement my support-based ministry job. Just a little over a week ago, I received an email from a man that said he found me on  This isn’t unusual, because I am registered on that website, and I have been contacted by other dads – but when it came time to interview, it was with both the man and his wife. I began to email this man, to gather information to determine if the job would be a good fit for me. The more we emailed, the more I began to get a feeling that something wasn’t quite right. There was nothing in particular that was necessarily ‘wrong’… but something wasn’t sitting right in my spirit (or gut, if you will). His questions began to sounds more like things you’d ask on a first date with someone. And the amount that he was willing to pay seemed too high. He talked about his two daughters more like objects than people. The way he worded things was just plain strange. I started to get suspicious. I shared the email with Andrea on Friday in the ministry office, and she thought it sounded all too weird as well. (more…)
