New year, new website

To old friends, welcome to the new look of the blog you already know. Use the links in the heading above to wander around and discover how much more is here than just blog.

To newcomers, I hope you’ll stay and become friends.

You never can tell what I’ll be thinking about when you come back. You might find stories about the care of God’s creation in Kenya, or about Christ-centered traditions. You might catch up with our adoption story or my all-out war with personal chaos. And sometimes I’ll be hoping you’re ready for some silliness.

I’m still working on some details like categorizing old posts, but I’m eager to connect with you here already.

I hope you’ll all subscribe, either by RSS or by email. That way you’ll know every time there’s a new blog entry.

For example, you don’t want to miss the next post. That’s when I’ll tell you about the Hurray-New-Website contest and how to enter.

I’m thankful to God for the ones who created this website:

Matt Taylor for designing the site.

Josh Sowin for building the site.

Abraham Piper for overseeing the project and using simple words to tell me what I needed to do.

  30. I am encouraged by what you have shared on your site. I have just subscribed. Having just moved to Nairobi, I really connected with your blog entries about your mission trip to Kenya. I see those ladies carrying firewood each day, and I think of the burden that the peoples in unreached nations still bear. When I read the words “Let the Nations Be Glad”, I think with longing of how many burdens will be rolled off peoples’ backs when the gospel finally reaches them!
    “Let the Nations Be Glad”!

  31. I am a new subscriber. In fact, I had not heard of you before last night. My husband has been blessed by John and his ministry for years and so when he saw that you had your own web-site he said that I might really like it. He has been impressed with some things that he has read from you on John’s site. So here I am, ready to be blessed. :-) I am enjoying getting to know who you are.

  32. I am very excited to become a new subscriber to your website! I am ready to be challenged and blessed, by what you have to tell us!!
