  • BC / AB / WA Camping Trip

    Back at the end of June, my sisters Cheryl and Karen flew out to BC to visit Shannon and I. After touring around Vancouver a bit, we drove to Kelowna, then on to Banff National Park where we met up with Chad and Mel. After transferring Cheryl and Karen to them, Shannon and I continued […]

  • Shannon’s Knee MRI

    I finally am getting a chance to post the MRI picture of Shannon’s knee, in case any of you wanted to see it. First, though, here’s a link to a site that shows an MRI of a normal ACL ligament. As you can see, the ACL goes diagonally from the lower left to upper right. […]

  • Perspectives on Missions

    Shannon and I have been in classes all this week. We’re taking a course called “Perspectives on the World Christian Movement” ( which is taught all over the place.
