For many months I dreamt about starting a blog. Then I would talk myself out of it. It was a vicious cycle of excitement and insecurity. Well, here I go. Come what may. I can’t promise anything…except that there will be grammatical errors and weirdness. What I hope to see in this journey is an opportunity to share what is happening in my life. Lessons learned and mistakes made…there will be many. You will be able to see my love of quotes, and feel free to send me your favorites. This journey of the middle aged fledgling missionary will give you a chance to share in the ups and downs. I will be honest and sometimes might make you uncomfortable. Most of the time I won’t be very spiritual, and that doesn’t mean my faith isn’t a daily part of my life, but that it is so deeply entrenched in there that I don’t have to prove anything.

Our family had the joy and privilege of working in the beautiful country of Tanzania from 2012 to 2014. (We still have property there, and hope to someday return for extended periods of time.) For now we are serving at our local church here in Thunder Bay, Canada, as well as working with a team of locals in Tanzania. It has been such a pleasure to use this hobby of mine to provide employment and education for Tanzanian women. It is also my prayer to take this to the next level as we develop the small NGO we have registered there. JengoLife is the name of the organization we are working on. Stay tuned, and keep us in your prayers.
Blogging is quite an adventure. As a bit of introvert, I enjoy watching and thinking about what is going on around me. These blogs are a reflection of what is going on in my life, and what I feel stirring in my spirit. I hope that they are able to raise some dialogue and thought in your life as well. I won’t hide my faith, and I hope to challenge yours.
