Meet my wife

I'd like to take a break from the usual "M Blog" themes and introduce you to the most wonderful wife in the world, mother of our two children, and overall amazing person.

Linda has her own blog which she does completely on her own called A Foreign Life.

I would invite you to check it out and find out a bit about our home life in Ecuador, see some photos of our family, and read about some of her interests as a missionary wife. She loves comments, so be sure and drop her a note! Might I suggest starting at the bottom and working your way up?

Here are the beginning words of her first post...

Many years ago I left my home in the States to live in a third world country. I worked hard to learn the language and was successful. In time I made friends, had a family, and made a home here.

Being a foreigner is not always an easy thing to be. No matter how long you are there, you never stop being a foreigner. My physical appearance, my speech, and my frustrations with the culture are constant reminders that I am, and always will be, a foreigner to the people who live here.

When I return "home" to the States, I realize that my home is no longer there. Things change. Friends move. Nieces and nephews grow into adults I hardly know. Sisters and brothers develop lives that I am no longer a part of. I realize that I have changed... click here to continue reading

Thank you for reading and commenting at my place.....

No hay problema con las palabras en una lugar incorrecto Senior!

I've enjoyed reading your blog and seeing your perspective on things. Looking forward to reading the perspective of your wife too!!!

When you are in the states again, you have a standing invitation to spend time with us. We are in a very small Association, but I think it can be arranged for you to speak to several churches in the area. I would enjoy spending time together.

And you would have the opportunity to travel the Highway formerly numbered 666 (now 191). It has around 450 turns in 90 miles or so. We do not have a physical address, just Highway 191. Imagine pastors telling people that they are on Highway 666....... I almost wish it had not been changed!

Thanks for introducing us to Linda!!! No wonder you are proud of her. : )


I love that story!!!! From what I know of you so far, I think you could really have had fun with the "Highway 666" thing. Of course, you could still be "the church formerly located on Highway 666". : )

Kiki - I like the way you think!!! Might have to try something.... now I can blame it on you!!!

Guy - Linda has a good blog. I've told my oldest daughter about it, she has one on the same service. Your Linda also reminds me of my sister, Linda......

I've really enjoyed your wifes blog. After meeting you guys, I think I remember right, It has been a treat to see her perspective. We are from Bama as well. Not sure if you remember or not.
thanks again for your encouragement.

Thanks for checking out Linda's blog. Help me out, though, what do you mean by "we are from Barna as well" I'm not following your line of thought. You've really got my curiosity up!
