Turning Vegies into Meat

Now that Gavriella is old enough to travel around, the two of us got to go on a field trip! I’ve been cooped up in the house since my last trimester (we feared the bumpy roads might harm her), so it was a big day for the two of us. Our destination? Our student, James’, organic farming class of course. I… (more…)

One Man’s Trash, Another’s Treasure

This week, one of our students is seriously sick and on an IV drip. Please keep him in your prayers. Because we don’t want to start New Testament survey without him, we are taking a week off to till the soil. We are still getting our field ready for what will eventually become a community, organic farming demo field. John… (more…)

They have been enjoying… (more…)

Yoba Yogurt 

This might be the most creative substitute for a thermos yet. “Don’t sit on my Yoba!” That is the message Scovia has for anyone who might come to the house late tonight. We have been working all day on this first test round of Yoba yogurt using village milk and are now waiting for it to sit at 45 C… (more…)

New Chapter of Life

This week, we will be packing up and moving to Soroit, Uganda. This transition is one full of mixed emotions. While we are very excited to be shifting to a more remote area with a greater need of pastor training, I will miss all of my Kenyan family greatly. God has already provided us with a fully furnished three bedroom… (more…)
