Retreat to the Abbey

Greetings from sunny New York!  We hope you are doing well and trying to stay cool during this really HOT summer!


I (Nick) was privileged to spend one week on a silent retreat in upstate New York.  The natural beauty of that area is amazing and it reminds me very much of the are surrounding YWAM Nashville, where I spent 5 years This was my second year going to the Abbey of the Genesee  and I was deeply refreshed by the Lord and experienced His presence and healing in powerful ways.  I left the Abbey with a renewed excitement for the Father and sharing His love with others.

South for the Summer:

Today, we will begin our trip to Tennessee for the summer.  We will stop near Washington DC for the night to visit some friends, continue to South Carolina to attend a wedding for some friends, and then onward to Tennessee from July 22nd – August.  Please keep us in prayer as we are driving a long distance (with three restless boys in the car).  If you live in Tennessee and would like to meet up with us while we are there, please contact us and let us know!  We’d love to grab a cup of tea!!

Speaking in Churches:

We are honored to have the opportunity to share God’s heart for missions in several churches in Tennessee.  Last year, we had a fantastic time, encouraging and challenging friends in different congregations to impact their world for God.  This year, I am excited to share what we are going to be doing in the future, and how we all can be a part of the Great Commission!

We still have some Sunday’s and Wednesday nights open, so if you would be interested in having us share with your congregation or youth group, please reply to this email so we can schedule it and begin preparations! 


We are still planning on moving our family to Thailand in spring of 2013.  There is much to be done in preparation for that move, including a lot of fund-raising that needs to happen!  Please continue to keep us in prayer.
