The Saturday after we arrived in Slovakia, one of our coworkers, Alica (pronounced Aleetsa -- "c" makes a "ts" sound in Slovak), offered to show us around the Bratislava City Center. The City Center is about 17 minutes away by bus. It was a painfully cold day for a long walking tour, but we were warmed along the way by hot roasted chestnuts purchased from a cart on the street and a meal of goulash and perogies at the Slovak Pub. The highlight of the afternoon, however, was the view from St. Michael's Gate. The tower dates back to the 13th century. Now it's a small museum with a weapons exhibit...and a great view of the city.
We live in Grand Rapids, MI. We are both freelance writers and are currently preparing for our move to Chiang Rai, Thailand with The SOLD Project. All either of us really want to do is serve God however and wherever He pleases.
How You Can Help
Pray: For us--we desperately need the power and provision of our God and Savior; For The SOLD Project and other organizations and individuals around the world working tirelessly to end human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of children; For those in slavery--that through the work of God's people and the Holy Spirit, they might be set free.
Give: Please consider supporting uswith a tax-deductible gift for our time in Thailand. (Select "yes" for giving in someone's name and type in ours.)
We know God's calling us to go, and even though we don't have the funds, we've committed ourselves to this adventure, simply placing our faith in God's ability to meet our needs through His people.
