We're officially accepted to CIM!

Hi,
Good news! We are accepted to the Center for Indian Ministries at Oak Hills in Bemidji. We can't wait to share more with you about what being Full-Time (missionaries) Staff for CIM and Mokahum will look like for the Kastenbees... Thank you all for your prayers in this process so far. We are now raising prayer support for the coming months of decisions and seeking God's will for our lives in ministry with Native Americans in Northern Minnesota. Please join us in going to our KING in petition for His Will to be made  clear for us as far as raising support, buying a home, working at Mokahum, finding a local native church...etc, go.

We signed our lease here in Littleton (yes--we'll eventually have a ten month old baby sharing our one-bedroom apartment with us--and Maggie!) through the end of June 2012, and will move to the Bemidji area the second half of next June.

Progress, people. We are making progress! Praise God.

Congratulations!! I am impressed by your patience and perseverance as you waited on God's leading on this. I know this is something very close to your heart, and I am so excited for you guys and what lies ahead.
I will keep you in my prayers going forward and please let us know if we can do anything to help support you in this!
Thanks Tami!
We're getting anxious now as we move into the next "real" steps of being on staff... We appreciate your prayers, and We'll do our best to keep you updated! (obviously by we, I mean me, and likely on the blog)

We'll be sharing about it in III Strands I think in October. I'll let you know as it gets closer if you want to come visit and hear more!

Having fun when you're not having fun.

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
