Gas Station Man

I saw a man crying today.

I was pumping gas into an empty van.  And though absent of fuel, it was full of life.  My sweet girl sat up front and my two bambinos sat on booster seats in the back.  The boy had rolled down the window the big sliding door.  We were being goofy together, exchanging our funniest faces.  But past his face, and past my daughter, through the other window, I saw a man.

Tree Farm Girl

It’s a good title.  Sadly, I cannot claim to have created it. 

I have just published my first book, the aforementioned Tree Farm Girl.  I am already overwhelmed with the response.  When thinking about writing a story about our love story, a title evaded me.  And a title matters.  It is that first point of contact.

Once more into the fray

I will be heading into India in the next few weeks.  There is much to do while in country. Our team will be visiting newly constructed buildings that are advancing church planting throughout their regions.  We will be encouraging those Christians who are living in a land that is day by day becoming more hostile. We will be preaching under an open sky to an entire region.  We will even be going to some brand new locations, places where the name of Christ has never been preached.



How can you help?  Please, pray for our safety.  Pray that we remain healthy in the heat, strong in God’s spirit, and free from any danger.  If you feel so led, we are hoping to raise $4000 for the two outdoor revivals. If you wish to give, know that it would go a long way to bringing the gospel to the furthest corners of India.
