We're Jason, Beth, Lee Anna, Sawyer, and Sarah Claire, a family of five living, learning, and laughing lots in Northern Africa.
We hope you can learn a little (and maybe laugh a little too) as you read about our latest adventures.

Special Request

We wanted to ask those of you who read this blog to please be praying for Jason's dad, Blimp (that's him on the camel). He fell from a ladder yesterday and broke his ankle in three places. He'll be having surgery sometime later today, and will then be recovering for several months. We're very grateful that the accident wasn't worse, especially since he was using a chainsaw when he fell!

On top of that, the night before his dad's accident, Jason's Aunt Ellen also fell and broke her leg. She is in a different hospital in Jacksonville and is also scheduled to have surgery today. Jason's mom is busy moving from hospital to hospital and trying to keep all of us far-away relatives up-to-date. As you can imagine, this is hard time for Jason to be so far away, so please remember the whole family.


  1. This is Stacey's mom. I know she has told you I read your blog all the time. We will be keeping Jason's dad, and his aunt on our prayer list. Love all of your pic. I am sure Juliana will have lots of all the kids to show us. Can't wait to see her tomorros.
