We live amongst a tribal group known as the Dem who are located in the mountains of Southeast Asia. We are here to learn their language, translate the Bible into their language, and teach them about God. If you would you like to receive our monthly newsletter, send us an email at:

Where's Dada?

Today Raquel and I took Dylan to O'Hare so he could go visit his brother Wesley and some of their relatives in San Diego. He will be back on Sunday night but, as you can tell in the picture below, Raquel was a little disturbed when we told her that her daddy was going to be gone.

At least they got to play on the way to the airport

Raquel and I went to spend some time with Jenna and Elise on Tuesday while Mom took Nathan to have and colonoscopy. We made Valentine cookies and Aunt Jenna took excellent care of Raquel while I shoveled the driveway with Elise.
They found out that Nathan does have Crohn's disease so we'll continue to pray for him as they decide on a treatment.


We had our Senior Retreat this Sunday through Tuesday at Phantom Ranch Bible Camp near Muskego.

Here are Dylan and Raquel spending some time together before Dylan went out to play broomball (he played about 7 hours total the whole time:)

We shared a cabin with the Tylers and Raquel got to play with her friend Ana.

After sleeping very little the night before Raquel sure was tired out (so was I:)

Tiny Dancer

Raquel took some time out from her usual routine of playing with garbage and computer cords to enjoy some of her actual toys. I think this is the first time that she somewhat realized that pressing the buttons made the sound come on. I like how she bops along to the music:)

Happy Groundhog's Day!!!!:)

Raquel is sorry she can't celebrate with you, but, as you can see, she's busy.
