Hello there everyone. It has been a while since we have posted anything on here. As you know, from the previous post, we are no longer on staff with Source.
"So, what are you doing then?"
Here is a bit of what we have been up to lately. We spent 2 1/2 weeks on the road for Christmas and returned home New Year's Day. It was lovely to spend time with both of our families and to introduce Shiloh to family and friends. The picture is Shiloh with his three uncles on Dana's side. We had safe travels and Shiloh did really well for a one-month old baby in the car!
Upon returning to Minneapolis we have been settling in as new parents, adjusting to three (now four-Andrew and Sara had their second son, Leif Justice Howard on Feb. 17) new housemates at our house, resting, spending lots of time together as a family, learning pottery, creating things, connecting with friends, shoveling lots of snow and waiting on God. We have been able to do a lot of things that we just did not have time for before. It has been such a rich time of bonding with Shiloh, who is three months old already!
Though we are still not certain of long-term plans we do have some idea of more 'immediate' things. As of right now we are planning on a wee pilgrimage in April and May. The first 'stop' will hopefully be a retreat in Colorado called 'Churchthink.' You can read more at churchthink.com. The retreat will be a weekend of exploring the kingdom of God and church as the family of God in the Colorado Rockies. From here we hope to go to Albuquerque to spend a month with Tim's parents. Tim is doing a pottery 'internship' right now (some of his first bowls are in the picture to the right) and hopes to continue this with his dad who is a potter. Read more about Tim's pottery endeavors on his blog. We then hope to venture on to Oklahoma to see Dana's family as well as attend the national 24-7 prayer gathering in Tulsa mid-May. From there we would head home to Minneapolis and see what adventures await us there. Most likely the adventures will consist of part-time work, gardening, parenting, pottery, prayer and life!
So, there you have it folks, the latest Krametribe news. Please keep us in prayer as well as our future plans. We are still processing a lot of the last two years with Source as well as waiting on God in regards to the 'next step.' We love you all and hope you are well. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, prayers, things you are hearing from God, etc. Peace be with you.
