Back to the Blog...


I think the first thing that is in order is why the blog has been so silent. There are really two reasons. One is because we were having some problems with the website itself. We've moved it to a new host and everything is now working. The other is that we've been busy moving and getting settled in here. So between the website not working and everything else going on, it's been hard to break the silence and start writing again. Not the best of excuses, but it's true. If you haven't been following us on Facebook, you've probably missed quite a bit. Here is a quick timeline since the last post.

Benjamin Silas is here!


Silent night.. Actually it wasn't a silent night. There was crying, pain, blood and sweat. All to bring into the world a precious life that was once in darkness and now in the light for us all to truly enjoy. Even though throughout his life he might see suffering, pain, sickness, and sin it's quite amazing to think that his conception was in a moment of joy, love, and purity.

Alone In a New Country




Have you ever made multiple phone calls and no one answer and then think, "Is this phone working? Do I even exist?" It seems like when we go a while without real interaction with people we begin to doubt. The other day I was reading a book about crossing cultures and ran across this quote.

“Because I speak no Portuguese,” Moritz Thomsen wrote of a trip through Brazil, “and have chosen to move through those parts of [Rio de Janeiro] where tourists do not go, I find after a few days of not speaking that I have begun to doubt my own existence”

Storti, Craig. The Art of Crossing Cultures (p. 102).
