The Kids are Off to Taiwan and Japan

They are in the air.

Dave, Tara, Hunter-Magoo and Stormie left DIA last night headed for Taiwan.  Due to the time change and length of the flight, they are pretty much losing the entire last day of the year, but will experience New Years multiple times as they cross varios time zones.  I am not sure how that works.  I just know they are currently flying far, far away.


This is Hunter’s first international trip and he has been preparing for some time, getting that passport ready and deciding what he will say to “the nations.”  He was born for this!

Dave, Tara and Stormie will be leading worship (and some speaking/teaching) at missionary and young adult training conferences for people from all over Asia with the Christian Missionary Alliance group.  They start in Taiwan and will spend the last several days in Japan before getting back in mid-January.


The kids travel the world.  I stay home and pray.  That is our agreement.  And this particular trip, I feel led to pray that the love of God will be increased in their hearts, that they will be motivated by that kind of love – that John 3.16 love for the world and that their ministry will pour from hearts filled with love for the people they will come in contact with.  You can pray these things over my kids, too, if you’d like, in agreement, because where two or more agree…

Isaiah 12.5 Sing to the LORD for He has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world.

Psalm 96 …Say among the nations…

Matthew 5 You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world

And may that same love that has made the truth of John 3.16 the great hope and central truth of everything be in you.
