The wind was ferocious. The sun had set so I turned my skis back towards the car, across the trackless landscape as quickly as I could, hoping I was moving in approximately the right direction. It was hard to see with snow stinging my face, but the sculptures beneath my feet, the sparkle of flakes in the waning light, were too delicious an aesthetic feast to quit until I had to. What a beautiful evening, and what a blessing to be able to enjoy it!

There was one other person out that evening besides myself, hence the photo.


Thank you so much for praying for me and giving financially as God directs! The first few weeks of the semester were very productive. God has blessed so far! I’d like to provide a brief overview of what is going on right now in my life and ministry. I am teaching or team-teaching the following:

Introduction to Missions
Personal Finance
Practical Ministry Writing (independent study with two students)

and will be overseeing/coordinating Creative Ministry Methods second and third terms. I’m also preparing the school newsletter, leading chapel once per week, and providing life coaching for two women. In addition, I enjoy the privilege of serving about once per month as music leader at my church here in Flagstaff and assisting with a second church by playing hymns in their early service when I am available.

I’m starting to get excited about seeing you all this summer! I must get at the task of organizing that trip too! Please pray with me that the students would grow this semester, would work hard, and that God would be glorified in all I do.
