Day 7: Looking for a New Church

(The fonts are doing that weird bipolar thing again. I don’t know why or how it happens. Don’t hate me for it.) One of the hardest parts of moving to a new place is doing the “church search.” And we … Continue reading

Days 4 and 5: Horseflies and Windstorms

(All names below were mentioned with permission.) The novelty of this beautiful wasteland is starting to wear off. We’re all exhausted, parched, sunburned and short-tempered. At least I am.    The kids have created a popular downtime activity, a game … Continue reading

Day 3: DBC Mission Trip. It’s the Little Things…

(Please excuse the randomly changing fonts. I didn’t do it.)  I’d kind of thought that this mission trip would be an incredible week of awe-inspiring Mother Theresa moments. Like a heartwarming feel-good-fest of building fresh water wells for native children … Continue reading

Day 2. Dudley Mission Trip: Red Rock, Church Rock, Bathroom Rock

Day Two: This place is breathtakingly gorgeous in an unspoiled, barren, Marlboro Man, coyote/roadrunner* sort of way. This morning, all 50-something of us travelled to Red Rock State Park to worship, meditate and hike.  Aside from being overwhelmed by the … Continue reading
