I grew up Episcopalian but did not have a personal relationship with Jesus until I was 30 years old. While in China adopting Lottie, God whispered to me that He desired for our family to be missionaries. My husband was a pastor of a small Baptist church in Texas for eight years.  We always thought we would go back to China but He had other plans and we live in Mexico City. Thank goodness because Spanish is much easier to learn than Mandarin!

In the last two years as we have lived away from the states and our family and all of the things that made us feel comfortable, we have had to search deep in our hearts and realize where our joy really comes comes from the Lord. In the past six months we have made an effort to be missional with all of our words and actions. I hope to share some of the things that the little ones and I have been working on and I hope to learn from you also.
