2021 Blog 9 - Aug/Sept

 Blog - August/September Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[ a ] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  - James 1:2-3  I'm not sure where to begin or how to explain all that has happened this month in the ministry. You pray for God to illuminate His path for you and when it becomes visible you take it. Sometimes that path is clear and you can see exactly the direction He is taking you. As you travel along that path, there are hills to climb, corners to navigate, and even fog can interfere with your being able to see clearly when the path is straight. Before you know it, the road that was paved with certainty and smooth, is now full of potholes or gravel appears to impede your travel. If you're not careful, you can become distracted and veer off course. You can easily begin to focus more on the environment and struggles, than on the one who sent you on that path.   Sometimes those difficulties

2021 Blog 8 - July Croatia

  Man the summer is cruising by so fast, it’s hard to imagine that it’s the middle of July already. Normally we would be in Croatia doing our summer MLO-Mission Learning Opportunity, but since Covid has put several things on hold and put other things up in the air, we are stateside and working diligently on collecting and shipping equipment. We are now up to helping 37 countries and seems like requests come in weekly. We are also extremely busy trying to get HiS PLACE put together to do local ministry. More on that in the next blog and we will have some neat details to tell you, but not for this go around.  Today I want to share with you an update I received from Stefan and Arie in Croatia. They have been such a blessing and hard working at helping those who have been affected by the earthquake, hosting visiting construction teams from across Croatia and Germany and still finding time to coach baseball and host camps in our absence. What a blessing. Sit back and enjoy the pictures as S

Can someone tell me where the time goes? When you think you got a handle on things and you're ready to complete one task and move on to the next task, smoothly and with no problems; then before you know it 6 weeks have gone by and you’re shaking your head, wondering how that happened! Despite my best intentions to get a blog out every month, to keep you up to date and let you know all that has happened, going on and what is coming up next; I failed yet again! Man, this is getting old and my apologies for letting time slip away yet again! So without further ado, here is the latest update on most of what is going on in and around HiS PRINT, locally at HiS PLACE, as well as globally across Croatia and the world with shipping!  Balkan Football League In May The Balkan Football League was birthed into existence, which is a huge milestone for that part of the world. If you aren’t familiar with the former Yugoslavia and the turmoil that has existed in this region for centuries, and most r

Time just seems to get away and before I know it another day, week and almost a month has whizzed by. So much has happened that I am not able to capture it all in this blog, but I can give you some highlights. That tells me I need to update you more often so I can include all that is happening. I need to remind myself to slow down long enough to make that happen so I can keep you better informed.  H i S PRINT  is busy both globally and locally. God is moving in amazing and multiple ways on both fronts. Croatia Earthquake Relief Globally we are so blessed to have Stefan and Arie in Croatia helping those in need and visiting the people affected by the earthquakes. They also continue to reach out and deepen the relationships we have developed in the past, as well as create new relationships by their being available! They continue to help those who come to  H i S HOUSE  to work in earthquake rebuilding and their hospitality and friendship has been felt by those team members visiting. Stork
