World Medical Mission Update

1.)  We have been accepted by World Medical Mission (Samaritan's Purse) and offered spots in the Post-Residency Program.  Praise the Lord.  Doing full time international missions has been my goal for around a decade now, and it is beyond exciting to be close to fulfilling that dream.

2.)  Because World Medical Missions is awesome, we do not anticipate that we will need to raise any support.  It seems the salary will be sufficient to pay our loans.  This may also change how we schedule my time from graduation to completion of pediatric boards (Do I get an urgent care job?  Do I raise support for the hospital where we might be working? Still not decided on what to do).  Please pray.

3.)  In the coming weeks/months, we will be working on getting a email listserv with our prayer supporters.  We will utilize this to give updates on the work of God in whichever country we end up and to ask for prayer.  If you'd rather not receive that sort of information but want to stay in touch, we will be using a blog (likely this one) with more general information.

4.)  As of yet, we are not sure where we will end up.  We are praying that if God does not want us to go to Bangladesh that he closes the door on it.  We invite others to pray the same.  We feel it is likely we will end up in Bangladesh, but if that does not work out there will be other options.

5.)   We do not yet know the timeline.  I am guessing we will move abroad in November/December of next year, but we are not sure.  We will likely also move in with one or both sets of our parents after residency is finished to trim our expenses.

6.)  On the ride back, Liz and I got food poisoning.  She felt horrible.  I just felt mildly nauseous.  Please pray that she feels better.  I'm on nights the next two weeks, so the schedule is particularly hard on us.

On Losing My Virtual Footprint and Physical Ticket

Thirty years ago, the technology that just turned my digital world upside down was unimaginable. I was locked out of my Google account because I foolishly left a Google voice number as a two-factor authentication. So when I was logged out of all devices unexpectedly, I couldn’t receive text messages to prove my identity.  The thought of trying to describe this situation to someone in the 90’s is comical. What is Google? Two-factor authentication? A digital world? Similarly, I can’t imagine explaining that despite having a ticket, I couldn’t board a plane that had a seat for me because a computer wouldn’t print my youngest child's boarding pass. In pursuing security and efficiency, have we lost common sense?  Technology has changed the world so quickly that I am old enough to remember a time when manual workarounds were commonplace and young enough to expect a lot more change will come in my lifetime. I spent much of yesterday trying every possible means of recovering ten years of e

Making a List and Checking it Twice (Choose Joy)

  Some of the best advice I heard about moving is to focus on what is good about where you are. This is solid counsel, and applicable to both temporal and geographic contentment. The pandemic provides endless opportunities for discontent, particularly comparison to how things used to be. But perspective is powerful.   I could think about snow, which reminds me that Summer is by far my least favorite season (especially in pregnancy), we don’t have a yard/lawn/parks, and the kids have been stuck inside for months (and now can’t go three minutes without fighting). We can’t bake Christmas cookies because we made the difficult but correct decision not to have an oven in our 90 degree kitchen. Our kids miss soccer, gym class, running, and having friends. And if my thoughts go in that direction, my jaw tenses up and frustration mounts.  Or I could think about how we have everything we need and so many things we want. A huge fan blowing. Christmas music streaming on internet better than we oft
