Why Go?

As we prepare for our time in Swaziland, we've found this to be a common question. Here's our short list of reasons why we're finally responding in obedience to God's call:

Because 1 out of every 5 children in Swaziland is orphaned.
Because nominalism is widespread and witchcraft remains influential.
Because children head 15% of all Swazi households.
Because we love the country, the culture, and the people.
Because Jesus instructed us to care for the least of these.
Because God has burdened our hearts to do something about it.


  1. I know we haven't seen you guys in a LONG while, but just wanted to say hi. Excited to see what God is going to do in and through you guys in Swaziland.

  2. We love you both very much and are so proud. You set up the blog beautifully. Love, Mom and Dick

  3. Yahoo!!! Excited for you two and the thousands you will impact for Jesus...sad for us.

  4. I love that you guys have a blog now! I am excited to read and watch as your lives continue to be tranformed!

  5. Thanks Joy! (and thanks for the inspiration too!)
