Fifth Anniversary

Happy December 13th!!! (I realize it is the 14th, you would have been reading this on the 13th had our internet not been haywire!) This day may not be significant to you, but for our family, it marks the anniversary of our arrival in Arusha, Tanzania. Today we finish our fifth year. Even as I […]

Time in America

It has been quiet on this blog! If you have wondered what is up with the radio silence, let me tell you a bit about the craziness that has been our life for the last month. First of all, we are in the States!! We arrived in South Dakota on October 15th. We are just […]

An Unsolvable Problem

This past month has held some unusual and difficult ministry challenges. Not so much with the daycare, as that program is running like a well-oiled machine. About six weeks ago we were contacted by a man that we used to work with regularly when we were the directors of an orphanage. His name is Edward, […]

All the Fun Things

For the first time in our five years of homeschooling, we have taken a legit ‘summer’ break. I say ‘summer’, because technically it is winter in the southern hemisphere, but whatever.

Mother’s Day Video Series

With this, we also launched our new sponsorship program. I want to take a moment to tell you about the sponsorship program. In […]

The Elephant in the Room

It is time to address the elephant in the room. Remember back in March when we made a huge Facebook push and released our video announcing the opening of our Market Center? If you missed it, you can find it HERE. We set a formidable goal of opening the new center on April 30th. A […]

We have been steadily working on getting everything in place for the opening of the Market Center, and are happy to announce that we will be opening on April 30th. That is six days away. Be still […]
