Everything will change. A Ministry of WorldVenture.
OK. We won't be much of a splash but we are really content to finally have our plans to get to the field in May. The exact day isn't decided because we are waiting for tickets.
We have been feeling blessed along the way. While this interim of building our partner team has seemed slow it really has been fast. Some take years. But being an impatient person has made it seem like it was slow. I loved my "impatience". I think there is a lesson here. We hear again and again…Continue

Hey all! It is way past time for me to begin interacting on the JC web site. I think I became a member the day after the web site opened. For you Journeyers, you may have heard about Phil and Mimi's plans to come and join the leadership at JC doing some member care and career coaching. My purpose today is simply to introduce ourselves.
First of all, we're Aaron's parents. We pray you won't hold that against us. No matter what you've heard we're really pretty decent…Continue
