Summer and Stories

Summer has finally arrived in Wales. School is out and special summer events have begun! From “Water Wars” to “Robot Wars,” we’ve had many exciting youth events. (We’ve even had a weeklong “Heat Wave” at 27C! … ahem… that’s only 80F … but remember we don’t have A/C!). But, with all this Summer busy-ness, I […]

Dathliad Wyneb I Wyneb

In Welsh the title means: Face-to-Face Celebration. I thought this was a fitting title for several reasons. First, we took our level Sylfaen Welsh exams this month. Secondly, we were able to have much more “face-to-face” meetings. Lastly, we celebrated Ethan’s fifth Birthday. Let’s dive in… Arholiad Cymraeg (Welsh Exam) Since late 2017, Miriam and […]

Building Bridges Back

It’s been another busy and exciting month here in North Wales. As Covid restrictions have started to ease but still remain in place, we’re finding that we need to, yet again, re-think how we do things, and “build bridges” so that people transition from an “online-only” experience to now: smaller in-person meetings, outdoor meetings, and […]

Easter, Holiday, and Outdoors

Furthermore, as I am now considered a “permanent resident,” we can now approach a bank/lender regarding a mortgage for a house. With a house, […]

Up and Running

Last month was a bit trying with the rash and the radiators, but I am happy to say this month we are back “up and running” in more ways than one. Namely, I am, well…  Running Again! This is such a huge answer to prayer! It is so great to able to run again and […]

On my Knees

I come from a long line of “doers”. On my father’s side, my grandfather built a church, literally, up from the ground. On my mother’s side, my grandfather zig-zagged back and forth across the States proclaiming the Gospel. Doing stuff is in my blood. So, this month, having to stop and focus “on my knees”, […]

Light in the Darkness

One of the hardest things for me to get used to living in Wales, is the dark Winter months. After Daylight Savings hits, the days get shorter and darker until the “day” is only a short sliver of grey haze between 8 and 4 o’clock. I mention this because I want you to imagine the […]

Re-started Gatherings It has been another interesting month. After months of waiting and a month of preparation, we we’re able to re-start several physical gatherings. Our “Family Service” has been a particular joy. Under normal conditions, our church has services, probably quite similar to yours, but now with Covid restrictions we are not able to: […]
