Traveling Sisters

Thursday afternoon we put our two girls, Sarah and Ashley, on a plane bound for Amsterdam. They are on their way to Burundi, Africa where they will spend two weeks with the Batwa of Burundi celebrating all that God has done for them and through them this past year.  Community of Faith has developed a friendship with the Batwa and we are honored to have a small part in what God is doing among them!  If you would like to read more about this partnership please visit  And if you would like to follow the girls' travels please visit  

A group of 30 people from Community of Faith will be joining Sarah and Ashley in Burundi on Monday.  Please pray for God's protection as they travel.  Pray for the health and safety of this group, and please pray that all their luggage arrives when they do!  


  1. I can't wait to meet Sara in Africa, your other three kids David & Ashley (including Sidneyanne) are so----sweet, precious, tender,loving, fun and oh did I include SMART, just like Laura & Mark. I love you Laura and Mark and your family.

  2. Laura,

    I know The Lord hears you when you cry to him and am so sorry you are having to go through this trial. My prayers are with you and know The Lord will see you through this. You are an inspiration to all of us and pray that He will give you His comfort and peace.
