These Sunday School teachers on training day in Mzuzu, Malawi are holding up their Green Grass, Still Waters bookmarks! Please pray the message of the love of Jesus, as our Good Shepherd, will reach throughout the world into all places do many may come to walk with Him.
This is what our sheep are doing today in the blizzard. You can see Laurie Ellen laying down by the play house, and Truffle (the brown one encrusted with snow) behind her. The rest are sheltering from the high wind by standing behind the playhouse. Good thing they are Icelandics! Not shearing until May. You [...]
This 5 month old, little black Icelandic lamb is named "Lavender". She joined on flock on Restoration Farm, Wyoming just this summer (2017). I love hearing Lavender's loud, persistent greeting every time I go outside! For the time being, our flock is being dry lotted in our back yard. This is to protect them from [...]

So there I was, not in the best of physical health myself, with my new sheep, who in her way, kind of mirrored my own situation. Since I didn't know how to hold a sheep properly for real he-man shearing, and probably couldn't have anyway, I did what I was able to do. I sat [...]
