This is all a bit surreal

We just quit the most stable, productive jobs we have ever had to join the Salesian Lay Missioner Program. We're heading to Johannesburg South Africa, but we aren't exactly what we are going to do when we get there. Someone I trust just said "I think you're totally crazy." I think I would tend to agree... All that rationalism aside, we hope to use this space to tell our story, and soon, (much more importantly), the stories of those we meet. We hope the words and images contained here tell you a little about us, the good work of the Salesians, and what brought us to this point in the first place. We have found incredible inspiration and peace in their way of life. Click here to read more about the Salesian Lay Missioners.


staying connected

Though we may not know every detail of what our year of service holds, we know we are in for the adventure of a lifetime. We are not writers, nor are we photographers. Rudimentary writing and amateur photography aside, we hope you enjoy our attempts to reciprocate your prayers and support. With your help we can tell untold stories, and make a difference in the lives of our neighbors around the world!
