Lost Tooth

Belle lost her first tooth.  It actually happened last Wednesday, but I am just now getting around to posting about it. Sorry about that!  It was pretty big news at our house!  We had been wiggling it for quite a while and anticipating the big day, and then at lunch on Wednesday it finally came…

Catching Up

Our last few weeks in PNG were pretty hectic with all of our packing and the chance of an emergency flight change. And during that time, there was a lot going on concerning our future ministry as well, so we’d like to catch everyone up on a couple of developments starting with our tribal team.…

Travel Log: Jet Lag

A fourteen hour time change is not all that easy to adjust to. This problem is compounded by having children who are also lagging. In fact, I think each child increases the jet lag effect by a power of one. Additionally, being sick (which Elizabeth and I both are) doubles the problem. So if you…

Travel Log: Sydney Zoo

Today we enjoyed the Sydney Zoo. Here are a few of the Australian highlights… A cable car ride up the hill overlooking Sydney’s harbor.   Tasmanian Devils     This is where we ate lunch–a bunch of colorful birds joined/interrupted us.     The birds were happy to eat anything we wanted to share. Including…

Travel Log: Re-entry

We are back in civilization and it is very normal in some ways and very strange in others.  Part of me feels right at home and sort of just wants to say “Ahhh”, but then some things that were once very normal feel very strange now! Our first time strolling down the paved streets, surrounded…

Travel Log: Packing

Almost a year ago we showed up at GSP with all of the bags above…and our eight carry-on bags you can’t see. Every airport-plane-change was a nightmare so we decided this time to try and travel with no more than five bags and four carry-ons. That seemed like a good plan until I checked Air…
