The orphans blessed us!

During our mission trip to Guatemala June 1-8, we expected to be an encouragement and blessing to the children of Casa De Mi Padre, an orphanage and ministry of Child Rescue. Well, we might have been somewhat of a blessing, but it truly was the orphans who were a blessing to us. This was the common sentiment among our team of 17 who went on the trip. Praise the Lord for how he has delivered these children from some horrifying situations and placed them into a Christian home with people who love them, care for them and disciple them in Christ!

You can see photos from our trip HERE and even more HERE.

This past Sunday, Noah shared a brief testimony during our morning worship service, explaining some of the highlights from our trip. You can listen to the testimony HERE (best sound quality) or watch the video below.

Dad’s cancer survivor motivational speech

Yesterday at the Relay for Life in Marshalltown, Iowa, my dad was the honorary speaker and gave a great speech about his battle with cancer, courage, faith and the need to put the “team” first. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Sorry, though, for the quality of the video, as the wind was blowing hard last night here in Marshalltown.
