If you have ever been a kid, had a kid, or spent time around children, you have likely said and heard these words a few thousand times: “go-fish.” To the late-in-life learner of the English language, it would seem like an error, an incorrect use of words, or a confusing way to talk about fishing…but … Continue reading “Go-Fish”
Written 04/21/16 of 04/19/16 Long story short: when I landed in Brussels, everything went smooth at the airport. 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 met a businessman, a lady named Esther, and a dentist, all while waiting for my first overseas flight from Newark to Brussels. 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

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
All 9 days of my southeastern sabbatical were good but Tuesday was better. There were highlights: Florida weather, historic sites, times of laughter, Godly conversations, card games, a sunrise over the ocean, an awesome church, and memorable meals sprinkled throughout, but Tuesday was a string of Divinity. I find it humorous because Tuesday was the … Continue reading An Atypical Tuesday
