In 7 years of marriage this will be our first dining room! We got this butcher block in La Crosse and found some trendy steel legs online. During my visit I sanded, sealed, and assembled it all. Kirsten is excited to gather guests at our new table for eight! We have a spare bedroom too. Come visit us this 2016!
Fire trucks, Christmas lights, and a pink baby! We’ve had great experiences en route to NYC and Simon’s day was made when we spent nearly five hours at the three-story children’s museum in La Crosse.
Since leaving Montana we’ve had Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the start of 2016 here in Wisconsin with Kirsten’s parents. Our stay has been really enjoyable and the kids have loved the time with their grandparents.
I was able to do a preliminary NYC move-in by myself the week before Christmas. I drove out with our small trailer (the road conditions were great), had lots of help from our new team carrying boxes up, and got busy painting walls and preparing rooms. Our new apartment is all set for the family’s arrival!
We are hoping to fly out at the end of January if our team of ministry partners is completed. We’re getting closer every day to being fully funded. We also received many year-end financial gifts and we’re so thankful for all the support!
If you intend to partner with us with an ongoing financial gift, and have yet to begin your commitment, would you take a moment to set it up today? Visit give.cru.org/0597175.
If you would like to mail a check, please make it payable to Cru and mail it directly to:

Be sure to attach a separate note designating your gift to our ministry: Ivan and Kirsten Bucher #0597175.
As you can imagine, some days it feels like we’re moving across the country at a snail’s pace. No doubt, God is preparing us for the substantial changes to come. Please ask the Lord to send us quickly!
