Kilby and I were privileged to serve in Brussels, Belgium, in 2020. Many of you helped us to ‘go.’ We learned so much during that season; we made so many deep friendships, discipled several young friends, and we met and shared with home groups to encourage local outreach, evangelism, and missions. I learned a lot … Continue reading The Augustine Book Table
“So what they told you, it is true…” This was the phrase spoken by my dear friend and now brother in Christ, H, as he met my wife and several friends who arrived to witness his baptism yesterday. I told H that these friends, and many other believers around the world who have never met … Continue reading Salvation Story
I woke up on a borrowed air mattress in a borrowed apartment. The view from the windows covering the walls proved I was floating eye-level with the surrounding skyscrapers. The view brings me back to my accommodations during work training in August of 2015 (and I thought that would be my career). The city of … Continue reading 02/20/17
We only have one life. You have one life, I have one life–regardless of last name, socioeconomic status, nationality, profession, bank roll, political affiliation, vehicle type, stress experienced daily, number of social media followers or scholarly achievements hanging on the office wall, etc. Each person has one life, one opportunity, one set of numbered days … Continue reading Sólo Tenemos Una Vida

The passport-checker man told me to cut my hair so I would once again look like the child in my photo. Cool detail: my mom’s neighbor handed me a few Euros before I left home, which allowed me … Continue reading L’aventure commence

I had a list of things to do that I “forgot” to do before leaving (like purchase clothes for a wedding, figure out train situation for arrival w/no phone, etc.), but I wound up … Continue reading Day 1
I just want you to know that God is good and He is at work. He is good and He is at work whether you choose to acknowledge Him or not. He is good and He is at work whether you love Him or hate Him. He is good and He is at work whether you were in … Continue reading Really?
A couple three people actually know the behind-the-scenes details in my life. Close friends. A few family members. Half a handful of colleagues (2.5?). I thought I might catch you up, if you care to know. Here’s a glimpse of what has been going on recently in the #lifeofGreg. I had a pretty sweet gig working … Continue reading Details.
Speaking of the coming months of travel, “set in stone” is a pretty accurate way not to describe what’s on the way. Plans are fluid. Intermediate transportation is up in the air. Who I will meet is completely unknown, with the exception of a handful of former coworkers, missionary friends, and a couple that may … Continue reading Set in Stone
