The Holy Land

Traveling through the Holy Land has been an interesting experience. I anticipated it would be fairly moving to visit the places that were important in Christ’s life and ministry. However, I had no idea that many churches were actually built over and around these holy sites. On one hand, we’ve discovered certain churches to be […]

Foreign Aid and Homosexuality

“All human beings, whatever their cultural or historical background, suffer when they are intimidated, imprisoned or tortured . . . We must, therefore, insist on a global consensus, not only on the need to respect human rights worldwide, but also on the definition of these rights . . . for it is the inherent nature […]

“I inject you good, you give me soda?”

We received a few mosquito bites while in Bukoba. At first Matt and I were super vigilant about wearing bug spray and always sleeping underneath the mosquito net to avoid getting malaria. When we would hear that ominous buzzing, life would be put on hold as we desperately searched for the enemy in hopes of […]

Because We Didn’t Take a Picture…

There are a few moments in Bukoba we would have loved to capture but couldn’t bring ourselves to whip out our cameras to document the action. We felt a bit disrespectful taking pictures of people; and believe me, there were some people who DID NOT want their photo taken. I tend to be the same […]

Servant Rules

During our road trip we stopped at Warwick Castle. Originally a fortress castle, Warwick was later converted to a country home in the 17th century. The state rooms are currently set up with wax figures depicting a house party in which an important earl was visiting. It sounds super corny, but it was highly entertaining! […]

UK Road Trip!

Realizing there was so much more of the UK that we wanted to explore – and that traveling by bus and train is very limiting – we decided to rent a car. Crazy, I know. Matt successfully drove a manual on the left side of the road! He did a phenomenal job driving and never […]

Bodysnatching in Edinburgh

It was so wonderful to finally meet Malcolm after all of the stories Matt has shared about him! He was a fantastic tour guide and Edinburgh was an unexpected delight to visit. Of all the European cities we’ve been to, this is easily the one we’ve felt the most at home at and we could […]

Schengen Mess!

Upon arriving in Europe, Matt and I discovered that Americans only have 90 days to spend in what is known as the Schengen area (a group of 25 European countries that have come together to basically form one state when it comes to international travel). Initially we thought if we stepped outside the Schengen area […]

A Swiss Farm

While in Thun, Switzerland, we had the pleasure of meeting my Uncle Myron’s relatives. He and my Aunt Betty hosted their Swiss relative, Isabelle, this summer, so we dropped in on Isabelle’s family. Our adventure began when we got off the train and navigated our way up country roads to their address, which translated to […]

Sunny Switzerland

Can you imagine traveling to Washington DC on the Fourth of July and having no idea that it’s the US’s birthday? Talk about ignorance! Well… Matt and I arrived in Bern, the Swiss capital, on August 1st, which just so happens to be the Switzerland National Day. Ignorance, indeed! Note to self, know the country’s […]
