This week was a continuation of working towards getting the office back up and running. The good news is that we were able to get a wireless system hooked in through a neighbor, so I am on-line again! This week we also are breathing a litt... Read more
The Fire!

Dear Friends, It is with a heavy heart that I write the events of last week. We have been having power rationing lately because of a major issue with one of the electrical generators running the whole system. Last night was spent mostly in t... Read more
Workout class with 60 Tanzanians
Saturday, October 04, 2008      10 comments

This week I taught the book of Galatians, which is one of my favorite books of the bible to teach. The afternoon class is typically harder to teach, because it is after a carb laden lunch that the Bible College students are fed. The first day,... Read more
Teaching, fasting, and really not sleeping.
Saturday, September 27, 2008      8 comments

This week has been a blur. I was teaching most of the week on on of my favorite subjects: Praise and Worship. It was incredible and I had a blast. Two days were mission days of fasting and I managed to do it, but was blown away at how tired ... Read more
The trip there and here
Thursday, September 18, 2008      10 comments

I dare not even try to download a photo. The internet has been so unreliable. It is so discouraging at times. I actually have been using the time to enjoy the time away from the computer. I think we all need to unplug every once and a while.... Read more
Internet Problems- but I am alive!
Tuesday, August 26, 2008      9 comments

This is the third time I am trying to post this. The internet has been unbearably slow the last week. I am doing great. Still eating right- most of the time, and exercising- nearly everyday. I leave for a roadtrip with Don on Thursday an... Read more
Homecoming!
Tuesday, August 19, 2008      7 comments

Yesterday and even today, you may have noticed I was unusually quiet on Spark People.....Our internet went out. This is part of living in Africa, but you deal with it. Today, we have the internet fixed- sort of....The power keeps dipping b... Read more
Starbucks in Tanzania?

This is a hut that serves coffee and tea. Just thought you would like the smile. I thought about a serious blog, but decided that most Sparkers are laid back on weekends. Today do three things: 1. Give the person that commented last ... Read more
This is only a test...
Friday, August 15, 2008      5 comments

Let's all be honest. I don't care if you have been on the road to health and fitness for one week, one year, or one decade. All of us have been tested by the foods we crave most. I was thinking about that this week. Do you remember the day w... Read more
The quiz
Thursday, August 14, 2008      7 comments

This is a continuation of the 100 days I am doing with Patricia. I do hope the last 8 days have been helpful. It is important to inlist the help of those who are around you. Sometimes they are not the biggest help. If the ones closest to you... Read more
Above the Clouds
Wednesday, August 13, 2008      5 comments

This is a beautiful photo that I had to share with you. It was taken from a higher altitude. The whole journey we are on is going up the mountain of the Lord. There were things I used to get away with at the lower levels. God just won't let ... Read more
What did you say??
Tuesday, August 12, 2008      6 comments

The most powerful weapon or help that we have- other than God on this journey- is the power of the tongue. We have to change what we say about ourselves. It is time to stop hurting our progress through negative speaking. See if we can ma... Read more
Possess the Land!
Monday, August 11, 2008      5 comments

Day 6 ~ Possess the Land! God cares about this journey even more than we do. He wants us to live in health. I thought about Joshua this morning. The hard part of weightloss is keeping the weight off. Am I right??? How many times have we... Read more
A different way to deal with cravings
Sunday, August 10, 2008      8 comments

The photo is from the last ministry trip. It looks like a race, but it is just life in Africa. “Create a special notebook or journal section for recording your favorite foods. When a food thought crosses your mind, remind yourself that y... Read more
Boundries, Not Diets
Saturday, August 09, 2008      3 comments

Isn't the photo of the sunset beautiful??? God set boundries for all of creation. It makes sense that He would give us guidance for our eating and exercise too. There is no magic pill or food that will make our excess weight just drop off sud... Read more
