All Dogs Welcome…

Summer heat has blasted it’s way into our bus no matter the shady parking spots.  All dogs welcome as our pack climbs their way into the bus as their little fury heads pop out the windows embracing what summer wind may swipe by.  Today we are in the bus, taking some well needed resting time…

Forward movement we step

“Along for the ride” seems to be a slackers kind of phrase.  For me, the energy that God birthed me with, demands an immediate curiosity and emphasis on active participation.  My down time remains active, even if in spirit and mind.  It is truly how I am wired and I have come to embrace it…

Journey on!

Back home in Salem after a long week in Redmond, preparing for the warehouse closure.  Since the start of our Full Circle Outreach Mission back in 2003, my heart has tripled in size while God built the foundation of more to come.  Our journey deepens and now God has provided an even clearer vision for…

Sending us out…

Who knew that an old school bus that carted hundreds of kids throughout it’s lifetime would find new purpose carting supplies out to families and individuals in need.  There has to be a song about that somewhere right?  Well, you would at least think so if you were to experience the love that flows out…

Mobile Missions Continues…

Loading up our bus Matthew, supplies pouring out along with warm coffee as we go down into the city streets spreading Gods love and hope.  It’s the little things like showing someone that they are not forgotten.  Giving dignity to those that are shunned, you know those that do not care to feel the love…

Street missions in our Blue Bird Bus…

Love to all, simply saying hello…quick update, longer blog to follow. Our home bus Matthew, began our journey into mobile missions down into the city streets in Oregon.  Outreach pictures are not something we like to do, as we spare the dignity of others by no pics…yet we know God has allowed us a loud…

Our journey deepens as mobile missions comes alive…

It seems fitting that the sun would brighten up the sky today as I write out the caption above.  Of course the sun would shine in the midst of a rain storm when announcing God’s journey within us is deepening.  Our home bus, Matthew, lights up preparing for the journey ahead.  Our home bus is…

Time flys in a Blue Bird Second…

It’s been awhile since my last post.  Adjusting to the valley life, finding God’s new path in missions beneath our feet has been quite a journey.  A loving lesson in the deepening of my faith.  Salem life is beautiful as it holds much hope for a mission future.  The need is literally in front of…

Blue Bird Christmas…

In the rain, Christmas approaches quietly.  New journey into our hope of living in the foot print of our bus home, once again is on hold as our bus~Matthew, parks again in our driveway awaiting a hopeful piece of land to call home.  From the window our doggies keep a watchful eye on Matthew.  Life…

“Togetherness…in a blue bird bus”

Last evening we traveled with our home bus, Matthew to a high risk youth school to teach on, how to live a life of purpose and teach alternative housing.  There are so many homeless along with toxic couch hopping, that our hearts are strongly led to dig in and further teach alternative housing to youth…

Learning curve…thoughts from our gift of a day

Last night, together we snuggled with our dogs as the winter nights began to sneak in.  Our bus bed is the same mattress as we have always had in our home yet its different as the dogs all crawled under our blankets as our feet and legs formed around their cocoon due to the cold…
