June 27th, 2007 · Comments Off on Parents of Missionaries

What is tougher than being a missionary? Probably lots of things I guess… but one of the things on the list would be: being a parent of a missionary. I’ll never forget sitting on Angie’s dad’s bed in June 1998 and hearing him give us his blessing – through many tears – to go to Taiwan. […]

Kissed George Brett’s Ring

June 27th, 2007 · Comments Off on Kissed George Brett’s Ring

In writing about the former Nebraska Cornhusker and #2 MLB Draft pick, Evans writes, You see, Gordon (13.9% owned) is fantasy’s version of a wedding crasher.

June 26th, 2007 · 3 Comments

June 25th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Taiwanese can’t swim. Of course I don’t mean that ALL Taiwanese can’t swim… just that in general… most Taiwanese can’t swim.
