There are so many tales I could tell about our adventure being Missionaries here.  How five years ago, come February 25th, Jamie and I started another adventure in our life together.
We could tell tales of how we’ve struggled together through trials and tribulations; or how we’ve missed so many of the people we left in the States.
We could tell tales of strained relationships with other brothers and sisters in Christ; or failed projects that we’ve had to let go off.
We could tell tales of financial difficulties; or enlighten you on what it’s like to lay in a pool of your own sweat late at night when the electric has gone out; again.
Praise God that none of the above holds any weight compared to the blessings God has so generously, graciously, mercifully and so wonderfully laid upon us.
Over the last five years we have been literally saved from ourselves.  Saved from dwelling in hardships, failures and lost focus.
Jamie and I can truly testify how God has, not only sustained us, but has revealed to us the joy of our salvation.
How can we describe what it is like when God gives us glimpses of how the work He does through us changes not just the lives of those we serve but our lives as well.
We tell you the truth, serving others; particularly those who have what the world calls very little, has such amazing results.  Results that we get to witness, first hand!
