Stateside Activities

While on Home Assignment here in the States I have kept myself busy with various volunteer projects, personal development, mentoring and speaking engagements. Here are a few highlights:

Operation Christmas ChildTrainer for Shoebox processing volunteers

P1170502 P1170504Franklin Graham also came to speak and celebrate the 100 millionth shoebox being sent! Pretty cool!


Urbana Student Missions Conferencevolunteer

P1170976 P1170985 with my friend and fellow Minnesotan, the ‘other’ Karen - appointee to Uganda

WorldVenture Renewal Conference

A great opportunity for prayer, personal renewal, to be blessed by staff and gleaning wisdom from seasoned missionaries. I also received my certificate for 5+ years of service with the mission.


Honored to be present for the installation service of our new mission President, Jeff Denlinger.

Meeting new people with a heart for Brazil

This couple and their daughter went to Brazil in 1960; it took them 30 days to arrive by boat, and they only paid $5 for a Visa to enter the country! My how things have changed!  But their service to the Lord has not. They are now in their 80’s and continue to return to Brazil every few years, writing biblically based theological books in Portuguese and supporting church leaders.
