loving others wherever we are

11 Sep

in a comment on the last post, my brother aptly encouraged me that the people of dallas need Jesus just like the ghanians do. i know that, yet sometimes i still turn down my “loving others” dial when i get back from a mission trip. it’s good to be reminded of that truth — thanks brother.

on that note, i’m writing to share how you can follow the baldridges in our pursuit of loving our neighbors in dallas. inspired by our experience of writing this blog, aaron and i have picked up our personal blog again. we gave it a fresh start by moving it to wordpress, and have hopes of posting more frequently (at least more frequently than we have in the past!). like our africa blog, there will be a mix of reflections, silly stories, and sometimes just summaries of the latest happenings in our lives.  we don’t promise big life lessons, but we simply hope to share life with our friends and family.  if you’re interested, you can find us at


but the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. against such things there is no law. galatians 5.22-23
