Many new things happening in my life right now. The most important one is getting ready to move to Papua New Guinea. I am starting this blog so I can share my adventures with everyone who is interested. I hope to post two weeks or so when I am "in country". However, I plan to post occasionally now in order to get used to writing a blog.
How did I get here? After working as a college librarian, I decided 10 years ago that I wanted to be a pastor instead. After graduating from Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque IA I had trouble finding a first congregation. Then I applied for a job with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Global Missions division. I have been accepted to be a seminary teacher and librarian at Senior Flierl Seminary in Papua New Guinea.
