10 reasons to be a missionary

10 reasons to be a missionary

This was my laugh for the day.  Many of these apply – I think especially the one about my driving “improving” – wait until I try driving on the “right” side of the road in coming months!  I am today writing a sermon about the missionary lifestyle – for missionaries abroad, and for every Christian who is a missionary to whatever neighbors they meet.  This is one of the sermons that will be shared as our family visits congregations around Maryland, New Jersey, and Ohio during our home assignment.  

It’s good to laugh, and to laugh together, about the joys and challenges of following Jesus and caring for all.  Keeping it real!

40 Days of Photos: Lenten challenge (click to connect to our Facebook page)

If you’ve seen our Facebook page recently, you know that Wendolyn is sharing a Lenten discipline of capturing one image each day relating to a word given via  These are the words – come on over to Flung Forth Anew on facebook and share your images.  You can do this challenge with your camera, or simply by using your eyes during the day to watch for the word of the day.  It’s been a wonderful way to re-connect with things I see each day – but seeing them through new eyes.  Blessings and peace to you!
