These are the words we spoke on our wedding day to serve as a mission statement for our family

from a soft whisper to a thunderous roar, the call of God beckons beyond our comforts and securities. Where ever it leads, our family will follow the uncultured, undomesticated call of our God. A God who would never give us safety at the price of significance. We will raise our children to always chase after the Kingdom of Jesus of Nazareth – A man who had no home, yet lived in the Father’s love. Understanding the call and cost, we choose Jesus above all else.

Meet-up @ Women O' Steel


The Penwells are back in Boise next week for the fall semester. We will be teaching the academic midwifery school for 3 months, then back to the Philippines until the next fall. We would love to see all of our friends and family, but it will be a very busy fall schedule and we may not be able to give everyone the time they deserve.

Yet, lo and behold, nearly as soon as we step off the plane, we are honored to be invited to a benefit party for Mercy in Action, sponsored by our church and partners in Boise. We will be there. You should be there too. I am suggesting a meet-up for all our friends who we want to see. Come visit us on August 20th and support our cause at the same time.
