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”

God’s timing

My teammate and I arrived in Spain on this air ambulance yesterday. It was a great ride, never been in a leer jet before and it sure is the way to travel. As we chatted with the amazing flight doctor and paramedic (who also served us warm croissants) it started sinking in that 1.My teammateContinue reading “God’s timing”

God goes before us, prayers needed

The last week has been a whirlwind and I have yet to come up for breath. I am praising God as His hand has been so evident in all of the things that I saw as challenges and His desire has been so clearly revealed. I will share more details when things settle down, butContinue reading “God goes before us, prayers needed”

Travel Days

In the last 48 hours I have spent over 6 hours on a ferry boat and another 6 hours waiting at the terminal. Don’t forget the river crossing is only about 2 miles wide. And guess what, I get to cross the river again today (as you read this). However, I am definitely taking theContinue reading “Travel Days”

“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””

Construction

If you know me at all, you know that construction and I are NOT a good combination! The good news is that I am not the one that is actually pounding the nails, sawing the boards, screwing the screws, welding the iron, mixing the cement, or mortaring the bricks. My construction role is looking atContinue reading “Construction”

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

I have officially been back in The Gambia for over a month and it has been great to be back, but it has also been challenging and full of lots of ups, downs, twists, turns and moments when I am just hanging upside down and wondering what is next. The Lord does not promise usContinue reading “Ups and downs, twists and turns”

Flip-Flop

Well, I have hit the ground running in The Gambia and although it is super busy it is wonderful to be back. My time has been full with re-connecting with my team and my Gambian friends, unpacking everything that was stored for the last year, troubleshooting my solar refrigerator and freezer (still not fixed properly),Continue reading “Flip-Flop”

The Little Things

This picture reminds that God cares even about the little things. If you have been following me for even a short while you probably know I love coffee. 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”
