Quick Family Update | Center for Indian Ministries

A little note to our supporters, in prayer and financially: 
 
Hello everyone,
We are so blessed by your love and support for our family. We are happy to say that we've only just now started feeling the hot and humid part of MN summers... Hooray that it held off so long! God has been faithful and good to us as we begin to prepare for the start of Mokahum's school year. CIM hired on a new director of education for Mokahum, and a young couple with baby to minister to the women residents as the Dorm Parents in their house. Praise Him for at least 6 students coming this year, and pray for more who are considering to choose well. Tim has been finishing up some projects around campus before the students arrive, and Amy has been busy with websites and photography. At home, we anxiously await our newest one's arrival (due Sept 21st) and pray for a safe and swift labor and delivery when the time comes. Cody is TWO and wonderfully so! He is a little man who wants to hum all day like mom mimic his dad's every move, and we pray regularly for him to grow up as a child with our Lord as his savior.  Please continue praying for our family as we begin this new school year!
Lovingly,
Tim, Amy, Cody & baby Kastenbauer

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!
