Rhode Island

Our fall trip to the northeast began in early September. We made a slow trip up and made new church contacts in Arkansas, Tennessee, and Virginia. Our first scheduled event was in Maine, but we had a little time to get there. Rhode Island was a state we had not been to over the summer….

Oklahoma and Texas

If you ask us where “home” is, we will likely say, “Oklahoma”. We have spent the past thirteen years there, and most of our support system is there. Our children hardly remember a time when they weren’t “Okies”. As a matter of fact, we moved from Honey Grove, Texas to Elk City, Oklahoma when Kambry…

Massachusetts

We spent ten days in Massachusetts, and met some wonderful people. We spoke to associational directors and church planting and church revitalization specialists from the New England Baptist Association. They showed us the great work that is going on in many of the churches across the state and the efforts being put toward building up…

Maine

When Philip was young, he lived for a time in Maine. He has always loved Maine and wanted to go back. After our visit there, we can safely say that we all left parts of our heart in this beautiful place, and we are eager to return and be part of the work God is…

Pennsylvania and Maryland

After our time in Delaware, we drove back into Pennsylvania and attended Lake Marburg Baptist Church in Spring Grove. It was an amazing church full of prayer, and it was beautiful to see the spirit moving. They are working to expand their ministry and revitalize their people, and we hope to be able to help…

Pennsylvania and Delaware

When we left Lynchburg, we headed to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and attended Memorial Baptist Church. We talked with many of the people in this church and learned that they long to reach out to younger people and find ways to meet their needs. We hope to be able to go back there and help them in…

Tennessee and Virginia

Our summer tour is about learning. We are seeking God’s plans for us and finding out how He can best use us to encourage ministers, equip churches, and offer revitalizing discipleship to help believers grow stronger in their relationship with Christ. We began our journey in Natchez State Park in Tennessee. There, we met people…

Full House (without the house)

This summer we will travel with all three kids and two dogs. We picked the kids up from church camp on July 1 and spent almost 12 hours on the road that day. Our journey this summer is one of discovery. We will be meeting pastors, missionaries, and regional directors from Oklahoma all the way…

Partnering in Prayer

As we left Oklahoma, our family and friends gathered around us to bathe our ministry in prayer. We aren’t completely sure where the Lord will take us, and we aren’t certain of all that He will ask us to do. We do know, though, that He called and we are answering. He has much to…

Hitting the Road

On June 30, after several weeks of downsizing our lives, we left Bethany, OK to pursue the call God has placed on our lives. In a lot of ways, it feels a bit surreal, but we are excited about the road ahead of us and the God we serve. God provided a beautiful traveling home…

Fireproof Youth, Westside Baptist Church in Honey Grove, TX

It was such a blessing to meet with the kids of Fireproof Youth in Honey Grove, TX. They inspired us with a skit, let us hang out and play pool with them, and even fed us some great tamales. These young people are reaching out to their community in so many ways, and their youth…

Allen’s Point Baptist Church, Honey Grove, TX

We enjoyed being in Honey Grove, Texas on June 4. This place holds a special place in our hearts because Philip was the pastor there from 1999-2004. On our trip back to tell them about Radiant Wild, we got to meet some amazing new people and hug the necks of so many that we have…
