MOMENTS WITH THE MITTS ON THE WEB

Doug, Lisa, Megan and Michael having a laugh! God has granted the wonderful privilege of friendships on two continents. 

As such, we are always between two worlds, with dear friends in the U.S. partnering with us as we serve in Europe, entering into new friendships in Europe. Our hearts are connected to both worlds, so we conclude our citizenship must be in heaven. 

Our blogging will be somewhat regular, but not overly frequent.

Enjoy!
