No Other Way

It has been so humbling to witness how the Lord is moving in the San Quintin Valley. The stories and emails of lives changed continue to come in…and it’s not always through our organization, but through the Pastors who have become our friends and partners. We assist, but they always do the heavy lifting. This […]

Parting Words

It has a been a year of adventure. Traveling Canada twice (once a bike and then again with a touring band), spending a summer up in the woods of northern BC planting trees, living in an co-op community project with 25 other 20-somethings, and spending time with the staff and directors of One Life investing […]

It’s Summer

I know this by the challenges and the way things continue to be difficult. Shouldn’t have expected otherwise! Shared with Pastor Basilio yesterday (a friend and Pastor to the community surrounding San Quintin) everything this year comes at a cost and is hard. This last week, six of us gave up 4 days. We worked […]


A couple of weeks ago, I scribbled down a verse and later thought it was insignificant. i went so far as to throw it out. …All last week I struggled to remember what it was! In the last seven days, a church from Chilliwack, BC blessed another family with a home. It was amazing as […]

March 2012

Preparing for home is at the best of times difficult. I always feel that there are so many opportunities and doors unopened. With so many relationships…with so many Pastors in the area….I never feel like there is any closure. The need is so great here and I always leave with an anxious soul. What a […]

With a Door Wide Open

Praise the Lord!! Los Olivos is paid for! It has been a difficult few weeks as I have tried to keep it quiet but, the Lord has provided funds to make a lot of prayer come to fruition…we are debt free! We can now move forward with our plan to support the local community through […]

Fall 2011

It has been a really short trip but, God continues to reveal to us how amazing He is. This time with Dwayne and Randy has been quite revealing. At every turn new opportunities present themselves and we are given further insight into God’s leading. The day started with lots of discussion around breakfast and a […]

Summer 2011

Brenda, Dakota, and I arrived home yesterday. It was great to see David and we are thankful for the blessing he is in our life! I know…I’ve been quite “thin” with my blogs this summer, but I trust you have been following Deanna’s blog? Deanna has covered many things I’ve missed (Thank-you Deanna). Nevertheless, it […]


At Church this Wednesday, someone suggested the movement to unite the churches is nothing less that a miracle. It is not surprising that we are facing a few challenges. As the Lord unites His church we are all standing in awe and are on “high alert.” As expected, the summer ministry opens with an interesting […]
