Just to let folks know what’s going on with us, I am going to upload our prayer letter in text format. If you don’t receive our prayer letter and would like to, please let me know. Or if you do get it and want removed from our list, you can email me and I’ll be glad to take you off the list.
Jan – Feb 2015
I trust this letter finds you warm and serving the Lord during this frosty winter! Lately we have had some snow here in Arkansas. It’s not much snow compared to what Read the rest of this entry »

We have reached the five month mark of our appeal today. I just got off the phone with the Danish Immigration Appeals Board. They told me that I should be hearing something soon, since they usually answer within six months. Please pray that we can hear an answer soon, if that is the Lord’s will. We feel quite useless over here, seeing all that needs to be done in Denmark and Greenland and we are here waiting for an answer. Please pray for us.
There is still a chance, though it’s small, that they could request more time and the appeal go beyond six months. I think this would be the worst response since it would mean more waiting. Please pray that we can get an answer very soon, if the Lord is willing. We want God’s will done throughout this process.
On a side note, dealing with the Immigration Appeals Board is so much easier than deal with Danish Immigration. They are a lot kinder, more helpful, and I don’t have to wait on the phone 45 minutes to speak with someone. (^_^) Even though I would not have chosen to go this long route through the Appeals Board, it has been smooth dealings with them. That in itself is something to be grateful for.
Thank you for all the prayers! God bless you all and have a great week!

This ‘blast from the past’ is about the first trip that Masey and I took in 2004. It was lot of firsts for us. It was our first time to fly, our first time being overseas, our first time staying in a hostel, all while Masey was 7 months pregnant with our first baby, Elijah!
God blessed us during this time and we learned a lot. I know that I’ve posted a little about this before but I thought I would add some extra photos for you all to laugh at. (^_^) I hope you enjoy these old pictures. And you can click on the photos to expand them. Thanks!

I heard the other day that there were some questionable ads at the bottom of one of my blog posts. First I want to say that I had forgotten that WordPress puts ads at the bottom of the posts. I use an ad blocker that removes all of them. More on that in a moment. I get no money from these ads, whatever may come from the ads being on the blog is all for WordPress, none for me.
Secondly, I can’t really control the ads that show up. I mean, I could pay the fee WordPress charges to remove the ads, but I don’t want to do that since they can easily be removed (and it’s usually for free). Also, my understanding is that the ads can be based on your browsing history. What I mean by that is when Read the rest of this entry »

We had a good Thanksgiving time this year. It was a nice calm day for us and we enjoyed it in MS with Masey’s family. If you had asked me last year Read the rest of this entry »

Our almost 10 Eli
We are getting ready to celebrate Elijah’s birthday real soon. Our only boy will be turning 10! It doesn’t seem like that long ago he was born. Or that I should be old enough to have a 10 year old! (^_^) We were riding to a restaurant to do the traditional birthday eating out and we were talking about things. I mentioned to him about his age and how I’m glad we haven’t broken him or killed him yet!
Seriously though, he has grown into a fine boy. He has gotten saved, been baptised, and has surrendered his life to Christ. He doesn’t yet know what he wants to do in life. One day he may be an astronaut, preacher, president, or missionary. It doesn’t matter to me as long as he is doing God’s will and following God.
On another note, there hasn’t really been any news on our paperwork appeal. I got a letter saying that it was received on Sept 19th. I am thinking about writing them to ask on the progress of it, but haven’t decided yet. But we aren’t just sitting around waiting. We have been praying about the appeal. We have tried to stay busy with some language study, home schooling, helping around our home church, and preaching out as God allows.
If any independent Baptist churches would be interested in having us come though, just give me an email and let me know. I have been working on scheduling some more, but that is a slow process. Thank you to those who have prayed for us, sent us encouraging notes, and have sent financial support. God bless!
