We will never have enough little American Treys to read the Scriptures in all of West Africa’s village churches. We have to present the Bible’s message so they can understand it, retain it, benefit from it and pass it to others.
Christmas Tree Time!
Every year we lived in Macon we would do a timelapse video of our Christmas tree setup. We missed it last year in Cordele, but couldn’t resist continuing the tradition here in Africa. It’s funny how VERY different our new home looks here than the one in Macon. Here’s the 2012 one: See all the […]
Get a Tour by Trey
Trey put together this little tour for all of our friends and family. Enjoy!

This butcher in Abidjan slices and dices chickens right by a dump, right out in the open. It’s a good reminder to really cook […]
Meat Sticks in Abidjan
One of my all-time favorite street foods is the brochettes (meat sticks) sold in Ivory Coast. For about $1 you get half a baguette loaded with meat, onions, and super secret seasoning. MMM..mmm…
