Bradyn's surgery

If you know Bradyn, you know what a sweet, loving kid that he is and that doesn't change even when he is sick. Unfortunately he has been sick quite a lot in his 6 years with asthma and more times of strep throat than we can count. So the doctor decided it was time for those tonsils to come out. He was so brave through it all and is enjoying some yummy ice cream as he is recovering and lots of love from all of us. We look forward to having a much healthier boy in the future. Thank you for praying for him as he had surgery!!

Easter Rally

We just attended our annual Easter Rally where Baptists from all over Botswana come together for a weekend of worship, preaching, and fellowship. Amanda headed up the children's program for the weekend and much fun was had by everyone. We cherish this time with our Baptist brothers and sisters in Christ!

BGR School Kits-Calvary Baptist Church

We just completed our school kits for kids at the last partnering church in the village of Molepolole called Calvary Baptist Church. This was a project through BGR (Baptist Global Response) where we help children to have much needed school supplies for school. What a blessing it is to share the love of Christ in so many different ways!
Love seeing my kiddos give back

Camping in Pilanesburg

During the kids midterm break from school, we took a long weekend and went to Pilanesburg Game Reserve and went camping. This was a little more tame camping than what we did this past December and we didn't have any dangerous animals running through camp...just a few impala and zebra. It really felt like camping in the States and we were able to take the kids bikes and let them ride around the campground. Love making memories with my family.

When our mission family all left Botswana, to be honest I was a bit worried about how we would fill that gap of family/friends. In the bible there is a lot of "BUT GOD" situations and this is one of those. God has provided friends for both us and our kids that were so needed and not only are they friends but they love the Lord. Nothing is too small or large to ask God for and we are beyond thankful for the friendships He has provided for us!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Brent just celebrated his birthday and kids were so excited to decorate and make him some yummy cupcakes. We are so blessed to have him in our life and he takes such great care of us. We love you, Brent!

Amazing daddy!


We are so excited to announce that we will be adding a sweet baby girl to our family this September. We will be delivering in the States (SC) as we were already planning on being on Stateside. Hopefully many of you will get to meet her. Please pray with us for this little one that the Lord is blessing us with.
