  I started writing this blog multiple times and ended up writing something totally different than what I intended, which was to give you a ministry update. Actually, a lot has happened with me physically since I first started writing this blog in September. I went on a short trip up to Kansas City to meet with FCA on shipping needs they have and when I returned, I ended up in the ER with severe abdominal pain. I was admitted into the hospital and placed on IV antibiotics for the next 3 and a half days. Praise God the medicine worked, and surgery was avoided. So let’s get started with an update!  Houston Update A lot is going on with the ministry and we are so blessed to watch it all unfold. I am so excited about the next path God is illuminating before us, that I must contain myself and travel at His Pace and not my own.  Last month at our H i S PRINT Board meeting, it was so encouraging to be talking about local ministry for the first time, along with our global ministry. We are taki

Wasn’t sure how to share this with you all, but felt it needed to be shared, something that me and my sister and two brothers are extremely proud of.    This past Monday, August 24 our parents, Charles and Cora Moss, celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary! Yeah you read that correctly, 72 years of marriage. Since my folks live in Indiana near my older brother and we have recently had to move them into a full time care facility, most of the family was not able to celebrate this wonderful event with them. My Pop is 91 and in failing health. Pop has recently suffered some small strokes and is living in the hospital area during rehab, while mom is living in their small apartment. Because of this, they have not been able to spend much time together. But on this special day the staff bought flowers, decorated the chapel and wheeled Pop down to visit with Mom to celebrate their 72 years together. Although saddened that I was not able to attend, I was blessed immeasurably by the pictures ta

Coach Antonio Poljak Sisak, Croatia The H i S PRINT family, and me personally, are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear brother Coach Antonio Poljak in Sisak, Croatia. For several years, Coach Antonio served the ministry of H i S PRINT as our local in-country coach and the coach of the Sisak Storks Little League baseball team. Coach Antonio also served as our Croatia Warehouse Manager and shipping operator. He held that position until the middle of 2019. We would not have been able to help the thousands across The Balkans and Eastern Europe without Coach Antonio's hard work and organization. He was dedicated to everything he did and led with a servant's heart that was unmatched.    Coach Antonio served his country in war during the early 90's and was called into duty to serve with the Croatian army in Afghanistan for several months in 2009-10. He and his wife Tanja have two children: a daughter Ejla (22) and a son Borna (18.) Antonio walked this earth for 52 years and

I forgot to mention on my birthday post that this was the first year in 12 that I have spent my birthday at home in Texas (not overseas on a Mission Learning Opportunity in The Balkans.)  It was nice to be at home for a small, peaceful, quiet celebration.  Although I miss my brothers and sisters overseas and they have taken care of me on my birthday those 12 years, it was good to be with my bride and just veg on the couch!

Spring Blog 2020 - June 23

Where does one start? Do they reflect on the year and what has happened? Do they look forward to what the rest of the year has in store? Do they contemplate on all the things that need to get done and let those concerns and worry rule the day? Do they look down at the things checked off on their to do lists and take a deep breath and smile or see the unchecked boxes and frown? Do they sit and wonder what they missed in life or question how they have gotten where they are today? I don’t think there is anything wrong with any of these questions, UNLESS, all of those questions were not bathed in prayer. Life is life and it moves pretty quickly and if we are not careful we can get caught up in it and miss our purpose for being here and the real Hope in life that gives us the purpose to live it. Today is my birthday and I just spent the early morning with my Heavenly Father and resting in His arms while sitting in His lap; there is no greater place to be than that. Those times are preciou

Hello there!  Where do you start? So much has happened since my last blog in April, but also very little (we all know what I am talking about there with COVID-19.) So much has changed and so much is unknown. Questions arise as to what the new normal will be and will hugs and handshakes be outlawed or carry a fine with them. One thing we are taught in scripture is that we are not to worry and to lay everything with and before Him. In Matthew 6:25-34, Jesus tells us to not worry about our life, what we will eat or drink or what we will wear. God knows, provides and protects. We are not to worry about tomorrow, because each day has enough trouble on its own. That doesn't say we are not to plan for tomorrow, we should and that is time well spent, but never to worry about it. Then in Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus tells those who are weary and need rest are to come and lay all those cares with Him and He will give us rest. To sit and listen to His kind and humble heart and we will find
