A deep breath

T continues to do well in the hospital in Spain. She has been able to be moved out of the ICU to a regular room where her sister can stay with her. And, she is off a lot of her medications including her oxygen! This all started just 2 weeks ago with breathing difficulties. GodContinue reading “A deep breath”

“We have arrived”

Yesterday was a very busy and very long day. After working at the clinic and then getting our accountants started on their work I headed to the town 45 minutes away to drop off a teammate at the ferry, pick up another, and do some shopping with the help of one of our Gambian workersContinue reading ““We have arrived””

Solid Foundations

This week a friend and her family have found themselves in seemingly impossible circumstances that would shake even the strongest of us and she is strong! She is grieving and hurting, but she is also trusting and standing on her sure foundation in Christ. As I have been praying for this family I am remindedContinue reading “Solid Foundations”

Ups and downs, twists and turns

To be specific, I love steaming hot, strong, black coffee. Therefore, a good insulated travel mug is a necessity. This mug has served me very well andContinue reading “The Little Things”

Divine Appointments

God is always trying to get our attention and working behind the scenes in many ways that we don’t see. One of the privileges of living in The Gambia is that because of my weakness and complete inability I see God move in amazing ways. I have been at my home in the village lessContinue reading “Divine Appointments”

“Critical Error”

Anyone else cringe when they see something like that come up on their computer screen!!! Yep, last week I was hit with a “critical error” on my computer and what I had thought would be a quick and easy fix did not end up that way. As I went through the stress of not havingContinue reading ““Critical Error””

God of Creation

As I continue my travels throughout the US I am amazed by The God who created all of this beauty and diversity. I have always loved nature, but after becoming a believer and learning about God who created the heavens and earth, mountains and sea as well as all creatures great and small everything becameContinue reading “God of Creation”
