Day by Day on the Douro

The Lord has given us the privilege of calling our family to serve Him in the city of Porto, Portugal. We will be arriving in our new home the morning of June 15.  For those of you that might be interested (it may not be many of you :), this blog will serve as a means to update you daily on the experiences God has for us as we begin this new life.  My goal is to be consistent at least for the first few months, at which point I will assess the impact (and interest) of this publication.  My hope and prayer is that you will be encouraged as you read of God's perfect provision for our family, through the good times and the bad.  I thank each one of you, as you have played such a huge part in providing us the opportunity to follow His will for our lives to serve in Portugal.  You have blessed our family more than you probably will ever know.

On a different note, today is my wife and I's ninth wedding anniversary.  God in His perfect plan brought a beautiful, amazing women into my life, a women who has always felt called of Him to go and serve wherever He leads her.  Her influence in my life has done more to bring me closer to our Lord than she will ever truly understand.  I thank God for His perfect will, and for allowing us as a couple to be a part of His kingdom!


  1. Praying for you as your departure draws near. I lived in Carcavelos, Portugal for ten years as a missionary/teacher. We will talk more later! Blessings!
