The Musings of a Stubborn Believer


The blog still sits silent. And what day is this?

Blame it half on sketchy internet, (usually down when I’m ready to roll) and half on photos and stories coming so fast I can scarce get my pictures dumped before the next thing calls. 
I’m resorting to something new. I’ll just journal here real time, and post in as-I-can time. I conceive that will be better than nothing in the end…
March 15
Sometime ask me about the meal extracted directly from the jungle, prepared by hands that loved…
And dirty feet. And taming jungle with Acts 2 in my ears… And a wild (5 hour) taxi ride across the country. Ask me sometime…
March 16, 14:39
Mango and Sticky Rice in the works. (yes!!)
Have a deeper sense of the glory of being climbed as Hs own…
Got it while sitting barefoot and cross legged, listening while the inhabitants of the third Pnong hut in a row insist to Cara that I must be one of them. Or at very least, my grandfather must be Pnong…
Well, no. But I couldn’t love them more if I were.


  1. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of [them] that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto [the Pnong], Thy God reigneth! Isaiah 52:7

    I can tell by the looks on both of your faces that you will be in no hurry to come home. I don't blame you one bit. 🙂 Soak up every minute! Thank you for sharing a glimpse into your world there. I enjoyed Chantee's email update and pictures too! We continue to back you with prayers. Happy Sabbath!

  2. Ahhhhh, I love it!!! ^_^ Makes me wish I was there. Soon enough, soon enough… I'd love to hear those stories sometime!

  3. Ah, my friend, I too wish I could tread the dusty ground of Asia once again. In His time. 🙂

    I look forward to the stories. 😉

  4. Ah Cambodia, someday I would love to visit there. Especially Wat Preah Yesu where I hear you will be next week. My sister Laura is a teacher there. But, since for now I'm stuck in the states, I'll go visit your hometown in NM next week while you talk to the young people at Wat Preah Yesu. God bless!

  5. Praying for God to move in mighty ways at each step of your trip…

    And there's little as beautiful as pictures from distant lands. Hope to see many more!

  6. Yes, stories and pictures! 🙂 I'm happy that you guys are loving it here in Asia. Continuing to hold you both and your ministry there and those who you reach in prayer. "March 15"–you said to ask you about the meal and the taxi ride. So, what did you guys think of it? A very Happy Sabbath to you and Chantee! Glad that we can be fellow missionaries in SE ASIA for a bit!

  7. Ahhh. . . the experience. There's nothing else quite like it. May you be as blessed as the people you have and will see. Praying for you two!
