Finding Peace Despite Quarantines and Peppa Pig

This morning I was reading Isaiah and these verses seemed relevant. I know the Coronavirus is causing a huge stink right now and here in Ohio is no exception. The governor has extended his stay-at-home order and closure of non-essential businesses. This means that MMS Aviation has been closed until May 1. It’s like mandated […]

Everything is Canceled

If you read the last blog post, you would know that our whole family was planning to go to Zambia. The tickets were bought, the passports were received, and God really laid everything out in a perfectly timed fashion. Then along came the Coronavirus and everything got canceled. You may recognize that song from “The […]

God, the Travel Agent

I didn’t expect this to happen. In April I’m headed to Zambia on a Rapid Response trip (you would’ve known this if you had read our newsletter… here). What’s a Rapid Response trip? Typically MMS repairs aircraft in their hangar in Ohio. Shipping or ferrying airplanes to Ohio from exotic locations around the world can […]

A shower. This happened to me recently when I found myself on top of a cold deserted West Virginia mountain wrapped […]

Mundane Chapters & Crocodiles in the Bathtub

Lately I’ve been scooping poop out of the bathtub. I can hear what you’re saying. “Poop goes in the toilet Josh, not the bathtub.” You should explain that to my two year old daughter! I can tell Adi has pooped in the tub because she lets out a horrified shriek and scrambles over the side […]

The Church Search

We love our church, River of Life Fellowship, but we don’t live in Indiana anymore and no matter how much you love a church, driving almost five hours to get there isn’t practical. We would also be driving past 4,451 other churches and I’m guessing we can make one of those 4,451 churches work – […]

Fence Jumper

Janice’s parents were visiting last weekend and bought us a hummingbird feeder. Now we have several hummingbirds flying around our back porch, fighting over the sugar water supply like a bunch of Middle East tyrants. Hummingbirds are pretty neat and all but they aren’t that special. If I fed Adi nothing but sugar water for […]
