i am currently reading "fire of the covenant" for the second time. i read it this time of year a few years ago, and it was too sad for me to bear so i had to sit it down. left unfinished, i decided to try again. i literally stand all amazed at the sacrifice these saints put forth. this book really brings pioneers to life for me, and i hold a special place for them in my heart. it humbles me. so much. i am so grateful for every faithful step they took. what an amazing legacy.

-bloody, calloused hands.
-loved ones dying
the gospel of jesus christ burning in their hearts.
