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.

You have to keep your sense of humor when things are falling apart. This morning I was sitting in the palatial environs of the International Headquarters of the Chris Fabry Intergalactic Studios, and someone flushed the toilet in the bathroom behind me. I was recording some voiceover for Love Worth Finding, but right at that moment I was reading a line about the "throne room" and casting your burdens down. I couldn't help but chuckle. And then it was a little hard to get the composure back as I tried again to deliver the line in a believable way.

One of the things I won't hear again from our house in Colorado is my blooper reel. I remember one section on there when Carl Metcalf was recording some PSAs. He got to a place in the script and got stuck, so he did it again, and again, and then laughed, and at the end he was just laughing so hard you could hear the tears falling.

Carl died a few years ago in a tragic accident. I can still hear his voice. And I think he would have laughed at the "throne room" line as well.

Whatever you're going through today, whatever life has thrown at you, whatever sound you hear over your shoulder while you're trying to be serious, hang in there.

Hi Chris,

I worked as a CAP operator for MBN when I was a student at Moody in the mid 80's. I remember Carl fondly and was sad to read in your blog that he'd been killed. He had a great since of humor and was always very kind to me.

I think Pastor would have appreciated the humor in that...and I hope you left the sfx for the LWF guys to hear--I KNOW Gary would appreciate it!

We are very sad to hear that you won't be returning to Colorado. We certainly do miss you and hoped you would return. We still pray for you every night and will keep in touch through your blogs.
