Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

Here are some excerpts from the last four winning entries in our "Share Your Story" contest. Thanks again to everyone who entered!


In 1966, my husband and I moved from South Carolina to Chicago, Illinois to be trained in ministry. The cold winter, the small trailer, the lack of family and friends often lead me to despair. Each morning as I tuned into WMBI, Wilber Nelson and the Morning Chapel Hour Singers greeted me with the theme song, "It is morning, the sun's in my heart even when it's cloudy and gray...." I looked forward to that every single morning!

Life moved on; children were born to us; we ministered in different capacities; buried a child; buried parents; watched our children enter ministry; and reveled in watching 7 grandchildren love the Lord Jesus.

Last week I was in the car, feeling a bit troubled in spirit. On the BBN station here in South Carolina, the announcer's voice came out of my car radio with, "And here is an oldie...Wilber Nelson and the Morning Chapel Hour Singers." I immediately pulled off the road into a parking lot as once again I heard, "It is morning, the sun's in my heart even when it's cloudy and gray...." I lay my head on the steering wheel sobbing praise to God for His care through all the years of ministry.

About 6 years ago, our oldest son went into the Army. He was stationed in Oklahoma for basic training. Then he was sent to South Korea for a year. During that time, I was listening to The Fish 105.3 in Milwaukee. They played a song by Mark Harris called “Find your Wings.” That brought tears to my eyes immediately. My prayer for all my children is that I could help them find their place in God’s kingdom. This song was such an inspiration to me, that, when my son and daughter-in-law got married, my son and I danced to this song at their wedding. Many of my friends couldn’t stop crying during the song. I sang it to my son while letting him go. My prayer for my granddaughters is the same--that as they grow up, that my love will help them grow roots and that they will find their wings.

I'm a country girl, born and raised on a farm in Southern Saskatchewan, Canada. My husband and I married 45 years ago this last May. Two weeks after our wedding we moved down to the border of Texas and Mexico to Pharr, Texas to work with Mexican Mission Ministries. John helped produce radio programs with the Mexican pastors which were broadcast in Mexico. Following that we moved to Chicago to work in the Production Department of Moody Radio.

We have a great love for Christian radio and eventually left Moody, moved back to Canada where we were involved with an organization working at bring Christian radio to Canada. The government here turned it down after much debate. What a sad day for us. But God had other plans for us and we were called by a church as youth pastors, and then later as church planting pastor in Northern British Columbia.

I listen to 88.3 WCQR in Johnson City, TN. I love the song "Safe in His Arms" by Phil Wickham. It was the song playing on the radio as my husband drove me to my doctor appt the day I received my breast cancer diagnosis in April. I had a double mastectomy on May 11, 2010. I did not have to have treatment before or after surgery and am now going though the reconstruction process healing quicker than I ever dreamed. Every time I hear the song now it reminds me that no matter what I am going through, I am not alone. God holds me safe in His arms.
