Learning About Essential Oils
I have dabbled with a few essential oils over the past couple of years.  I have used mostly herbs, and herbal remedies.  I make this Elderberry-Echinacea syrup and we take it daily during cold season (only 2-3 times per week otherwise).  I even carry it on ...
I have dabbled with a few essential oils over the past couple of years. I have used mostly herbs, and herbal remedies. I make this Elderberry-Echinacea syrup and we take it daily during cold season (only 2-3 times per week otherwise). I even carry it on the road in deputation!

Double Trouble...Double Cute?
This "twin trouble" story needs a little background.  We are in Virginia en route to Charlotte, NC.  We don't have a Wednesday night meeting, so we are taking our time and spending a couple of days at a Prophet's Chamber in Blackstone, VA.    As we left Lad...

When Ben is booking meetings, he tries to schedule churches in a reasonable proximity to each other to minimize travel. At the beginning we stayed in New England so we could travel there on the weekends and Ben could still work his job during the week. Since February we have been in the Midwest, ...

Resurrection Sunday
Last week we spent Resurrection Sunday in Williston, ND.  It is on the tail end of an oil boom, but the signs everywhere still said "Welcome to Boomtown USA."   Ben presented our ministry in the Sunday School hour.  We enjoyed fellowshipping with the church...
Elaine was excited to have made a special treat during Children's Church. They rolled large marshmallows in a crescent roll and baked it. When they bit into their dessert, they tasted the sweetness of the Resurrection, but the marshmallow was gone! I have wanted to make Resurrection Cookies with ...

What is Deputation? Part 2: The Mission Board
Read Part 1: A Definition here. Many missionaries choose to use a Mission Board or a Mission
Agency to assist them with their pre-field and on-field ministry.   There are many independent Baptist mission

One of the hardest parts of deputation for me is living in the van. Everything we need has to fit in there (glad we have a big one!), and stay organized. I would add that my preference is for it to stay clean as well, but traveling in the snowy months, having four little kids, and all of the ...
