Four-Wheeler!



 We were given a four wheeler for Jacob's ministry at Interface! Now he can run all over campus building and fixing what needs fixin' a lot faster!
 
I even got to learn how to drive it!
 
 We had to ship it to PNG... but first we had to wash it. Customs won't allow a speck of dirt in the country. Poor Jacob, its a somewhat impossible task to wash with water in freezing cold temperatures!
 
 We were so thankful for all the help that Jacob's dad, Stanley, was in this whole process!!
 

 

 

 

 

 
 We also shipped over Jacob's electric piano!
 

 

 
 Yes! It is finished!
 

 
 And the truck came to take away! It was quite the adventure!

American Thanksgiving...



 
 It was good to be home for Thanksgiving this year with my family and my husband!
 
 




Jacob got to meet Abraham Lincoln at his first American Thanksgiving dinner.

Introductions

    

On November 7th, I became Beth's husband! I am excited to join the ministry of interface. I am also excited about all that God has for Beth and I as we both enter into this new chapter of our lives. For now, I just wanted to introduce myself to everyone who reads her blog which is now our blog. J I know everyone already knows about me from Beth's previous posts. I am very excited about all that the future holds for Beth and I as a married couple. I look forward to the excitement that living in a developing country always brings and the opportunities that being a missionary entails. However, as I look toward the future I realize the gravity and seriousness of what Beth and I are doing. I am not expecting that adjusting to married life, a new culture, and a new job will be easy. I find it easy to be intimidated by all these seemingly huge tasks that are ahead of Beth and I. But, in reality, these are not tasks but opportunities, and opportunity is what makes life exciting. In the words of G.K. Chesterton, "life …was an ecstasy because it was an adventure; it was an adventure because it was an opportunity."
