The Power of A Story

We each have a story to tell.  We are simultaneously writing and living a story that is sometimes dramatic, sometimes droll, sometimes unpredictable, sometimes uneventful...but always worth telling.  And there is power in a story.  There is power to excite, to inspire, to encourage, to challenge, to humble, and to change.  That is why it's important to tell them.  We are created in the image of a creative God who has written and told the most all-consuming Story of all time, and He encourages us to write and live and tell our own story too, in conjunction with His.

So that's what this blog is for: to tell our story as it now stands and as we continually write and live it.  We are a family that has been called to do medical missions in Africa.  It's an unusual way for an American family to live and many people have questions for us.  We hope to answer those questions as we invite you on our journey toward Africa and tell stories along the way.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
   his love endures forever.
Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story - 
   those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,
those he gathered from the lands,
   from east and west, from north and south.

~ Psalm 107:1-3
