One thing about being a missionary is that we have people we love in the United States and people we love in Slovakia and those two worlds don’t often overlap. When they do, there’s a certain kind of joy in making that connection. That’s going to happen this summer when Jana’s cousin and his family (Draho, Zuzana, Oliver, Johanna and Viktor) arrive in the States for some very special ministry training.[Read more…]
If you haven’t visited our gallery page in a while, you might want to check it out. We’ve added some new photos of Elisabeth in concert with the praise band she plays in, our small group, Trinity’s recent concert in Slovakia, and, of course, our first spring hikes.
We’ve created a picture book that we’ll be bringing with us on home assignment. We hope this will be one way to share our ministry with you. It contains some basic information about Slovakia and our family as well as some snippets about theological education, Narnia Elementary School, our local church and more. If you won’t see us on home assignment, you can at least click through to see an online version (sorry, flash only, there’s no mobile version).
It’s time once again for our biennial home assignment trip to the United States to report on our ministry in Slovakia. We’ll be arriving in Chicago on June 25 and departing on August 22. This year we have a different goal than usual and there are lots of ways we need help to make this an effective time in the States.
Janus was the Roman god of transitions. With his two faces he stood in the gate of time and looked with one face toward the past and one toward the future. He gave his name (according to some) to the month of January since this is the time of year we like to januflect—evaluate our past and make adjustments for the future. If you are praying for us, this is a good post to read to understand how best to pray for our ministry and family.
We hope you are enjoying a wonderful Advent season in anticipation of the coming of our Lord and hope you have a blessed 2018. Enjoy this greeting with a short photo overview of our year while Jana (piano) and Elisabeth (violin) play “A Song from Secret Garden.”
We had a beautiful fall in Slovakia this year and snow as early as Nov 1. Check out our fall 2017 photos.
