50 Days | 50 Faces | 50k


Remember when I went to India with my CCU2TheWorld Missions Team in 2008? 
I spent almost a month between two villages which Ryan and Amanda Phillips have given their lives to work for the Lord with.  We shared our physical labor and our hearts through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In Rataygaoun, we built a footbridge with stone, concrete and bamboo. In Daragaoun, we helped out at the Swasti-Kendra (hospital/clinic) and worked on finishing up some new school buildings. Ryan and Amanda (who graduated from CCU a few years before I went there) lived in Daragaoun at the time. Now, Ryan is very involved in the Dayasagar Project. 

Well, I want to share something from Ryan:
"Tomorrow marks the beginning of ECTA's 50/50/50 campaign. For the next 50 days I'm in India, I will share a photo of an individual directly supported, trained or equipped by the Dayasagar Project. You will see 50 faces. You will read a short description of 50 lives who are reaching out to improve the health their communities. ECTA invests in those people who say, "...and let it begin with me!" 50 Days and 50 Faces to raise the $50,000 dollars needed to empower these stories and so many others for the next year."

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!
