Josephine

Josephine

One last story before we close out the year. I was very excited to see Josephine and her mother as we walked the street by our school. We first met Josephine in 2012 and I sent out a message with her beautiful smile telling about our desire to increase our commitment to growing the school […]

Financial Update – Part 3

Financial Update – Part 3

Today I want to take you into the homes of three different families I visited earlier this year. The mother of the first family is Leah. She lives in this one room, about 3×3 meters, with her husband and three kids. There is no running water and a single small light overhead. The children are […]

2017 Financial Update

For the last few days of 2017, I will focus on the financial needs of the ministry.

The Last Unopened Gift

The Last Unopened Gift

Romans 6:23

Did you see it? You may have missed it…but it was there. Don’t feel bad; most people overlook this one, but there is still time. Today, before the new year gets here, before all the decorations are put away, before all the other gifts are set aside, open it! Romans 6:23 “For the wages of […]

Day of Remembrance

Day of Remembrance

John 1:1,14

There are only a few more days to go! Only a few more days until…until what? Why is December 25th so special? What really is this day we call Christmas? The early church did not give much thought to the birth of Jesus. Of the four Gospels only Matthew and Luke even mention His birth, […]

Día de Conmemoración

Día de Conmemoración

Juan 1:1,14

Falta ahora pocos días hasta el 25 de Diciembre – solamente unos pocos días hasta – ¿hasta que? ¿Que es exactamente el 25 de Diciembre? ¿Que es este día que llamamos Navidad? La iglesia primitiva no pensó mucho del nacimiento de Jesús. De los cuatro evangelios solamente Mateo y Lucas hacen mención de Su nacimiento, […]

The First Move

The First Move

1 John 4:9

In our celebration of the birth of Christ, we know the focus of Christmas should be the eternal gift given through the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. This season ought to irresistibly draw us nearer to God as we reflect on His wonderful gift of love. But perhaps there are times we need […]

El Primer Paso

El Primer Paso

1 Juan 4:9

En el mensaje “Día de Conmemoración” vimos que el enfoque de Navidad siempre debe estar en recordar el regalo dado a través del nacimiento, vida, muerte, y resurrección de Jesús. Esta época debe atraernos irresistiblemente a Dios mientras reflexionamos en Su regalo de amor. El nacimiento de Jesús nos da un conocimiento más profundo acerca […]

The Gift of True Forgiveness

The Gift of True Forgiveness

Ephesians 4:32

It’s hard to believe there are only a few more days until Christmas. Yes, as the song says: “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” It really is wonderful! We are flooded with Christmas music, Christmas lights, and lots of Christmas “activities.” And although the season contains many distractions which attempt to pull us […]

El Regalo del Perdón Verdadero

El Regalo del Perdón Verdadero

Efesios 4:32

Si, como dice la canción: “Es el tiempo mas maravilloso del año!” Estamos inundados con música navideña, luces navideñas, y muchas “actividades” navideñas. Y aunque los “adornos” navideños son frecuentamente distracciones, la mayoría de nosotros somos capaces de ver mas allá de la brillantina. A pesar que el mundo intenta distraernos, generalmente hacemos tiempo para […]

A Defeated Enemy

A Defeated Enemy

Joshua 2:11

As we study God’s Word, we should be reminded of how fortunate we are to have so many stories and testimonies upon which to build our faith. This is particularly true of the multitude of Old Testament stories; “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance […]
