Holdin' Down the Fort

This past month has gone from one extreme of having lots of family around to now just being by myself with the kids, but let me tell you a little bit about the highs, lows, and in-betweens.    I know that we have shared in the past about Peyton and Austin, but we love both of those boys so much. We really enjoy being able to share a deep love for missions and learning about a global God together, so we try to spend as much time with them as we can.  First, we are... Read More

Rewiring and Restoring Blog #2

To all who prayed me through this last trip to Russia... THANK YOU!  I hope this little report will be a tremendous encouragement to you that our prayers do matter.  I have absolutely no doubt, that your prayers were the reasons I got through all the teachings in spite of being sick and exhausted most of the time, for the incredible effectiveness of the trainings, and the ease of preparations in spite of everything being last minute. First I trained about 30 lay church... Read More

Leprosy... in White River South Africa? Never!

Well that was my response until I met Agosthino. Until I looked into his infected eyes, felt the missing finger digits in a gentle hand shake and saw tender gratitude in a pain-weary face. Agosthino, poor and emaciated and suffering the cruel legacy of leprosy, came alone from Mozambique as a foreign migrant seeking medical attention. He got more than he hoped for.   After arriving in Msholozi township in White River and finding a place to sleep, Agosthino gathered his... Read More

A New Home for Daughters of the King

We moved into a a bigger and better home!  The owners of the house we were renting wanted to put the house up for sale. Our board of directors had contemplated us buying a house, but this house was just too expensive because of the location. Our board started looking into the option of us paying the bank each month instead of rent and started looking at houses on the market. They found a beautiful home at a very good price, just a little outside of town. So we are no longer renting... Read More

Rewiring and Restoring Blog #1

Dear Friends of Global Orphan Care: I could write a book on how TBRI (Trust Based Relational Intervention), which I teach to global orphan care workers and foster families, has deepened my understanding of the gospel and my love for the Father and His great tenderness towards us. The Father uses everything in creation to reveal His power and character to us. Everything is a metaphor about ultimate reality. He isn’t random in what He does. The way He designed for us to develop... Read More

Heads or Tails?

I was recently listening on the radio and they were talking about lucky pennies. If the penny is heads up, then it will bring you good luck. If it is tails up, then you should flip it over so that it will bring good luck to the next person who comes along. We don’t really believe in all of those superstitions or old wives tales, but we did want to share with you a little bit of the “tails up” version of our lives for the past few months…to truly be vulnerable....

New Year's Updates from Mozambique

Update on the Orphans Our year-end Christmas camp for the orphans, where we hired space at the Bethel Centre for 2 nights and 3 days, was a wonderful success, all glory to God. We saw MUCH growth in the children, as they practiced songs, memory verses and a play about Noah’s ark, to show that Jesus is our Ark of Salvation. The kids were really engaged in the Bible lessons and messages, because we told them they would have a chance to share each of... Read More

New Year's Updates from Russia

Thank You and Merry Christmas! Little bit over a week ago, I have returned from Russia.  Now I am sitting in the library, looking through the window, seeing how the snow has covered the ground, the lights are shining on the houses decorated with lights, the Christmas season is now here.  As we are only a few weeks away from celebrating one of the most important holidays in the year, the birth of Christ the Savior, I hope that we will truly reflect on the meaning and...

Parties...and more parties!

Happy New Year! As our updates are always a month old, we will be talking about things happening this past year. So even though it is news that is so old that it happened “last year,” I hope you still enjoy it! One of the highlights of this past month was getting to help out with the Christmas Party at Iglesia Esperanza. This is a church that is connected with the ministry Su Casa that we have recently started volunteering with. We had spoken to Cecy at the church and let... Read More

A Family in Motion

This edition of the Sneed Chronicle is fast paced and to the point.  As always, our lives are so chaotic and busy if we went into too much detail on anything no one would ever read to the end.  As we get started, we need to let you know for a good portion of this year we’ve had two extra humans in our family.  It’s been a wild ride at times. It’s been a pretty good year for Alyson.   But when you’re 8 years old and all your needs are met, why... Read More
