Psalm 8:5 – You have crowned him with glory and honour… On my first trip to Guatemala in 2009 we visited the orphanage  called “New Life” in Solola near lake Atitlan.  My heart was saddened with the reality that these beautiful and precious babies would not have the opportunity to be adopted by foreigners because the adoption laws […]

  Thursday was one long day.  Emma and I were in route back to St. Louis for over 25 hours.  It was good that our last flight from Chicago to St. Louis was the shortest leg, because our excitement to get back to our family was boiling over.  They were as excited to see us, […]

The Quinlans (Larry and Nancy) had the Crawfords (Tom and Janice) come to their house to join us for dinner Saturday evening.  The meal was great.  Chicken Parmesan, veggies and wonderful garlic bread.  But the real joy was sitting around the table discussing the work of God in Indonesia (past, present, and future).  The conversation […]

As Emma finished introducting her song with the aid of translation by missionary Nancy Quinlan and walked over to the pinao to sing, Larry Quinlan leaned over to me and said, “you have to be very proud of your daughter.”  I could hardly answer back as my throat was getting a little choked up and […]

WOW! What an unbelievable thing it was to stand up on a Saturday morning and see sixty plus Christian servants sitting at attention, eager to hear what the Bible has to say about warning and admonishing each other in the church.  I prayed that God would help Larry and I to develop a good cadence […]
