Africa Update

(A few of our school kids on the shore of Lake Victoria.) My daughter and I traveled to Kenya during the first two weeks of January to visit our school projects. This was an important visit as I have not been to Kenya in several years. The last time I was planning a visit, my […]

From A Pure Heart

Surrender And Live

Surrender And Live

Jeremiah 21:8-9

Jeremiah warned the people of Jerusalem for many years that they must repent or be destroyed. He often warned with direct words from God: “I am preparing a disaster for you and devising a plan against you. So turn from your evil ways” (Jeremiah 18:11). It’s hard to imagine a more direct warning. But the […]

Rendir y Vivir

Jeremías 21:8-9

Jeremías advirtió a la gente en Jerusalén por muchos años que deberían arrepentirse o serían destruídos.

Resolve To Be Transformed

Romans 12:2

Yo confieso que he tomado una resolución de correr mil millas este año. También confieso que no he comenzado muy bien – solamente he corrido […]

After the birth of Jesus, Magi (wise men) came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the One who has been born King of the Jews?” (Matthew 2:2).

Después del nacimiento de Jesús, llegaron tres magos a Jerusalén y preguntaron, “¿Dónde está el rey de los judíos, que ha nacido?” (Mateo 2:2). Cuando el Rey Herodes oyó esto se puso muy turbado. Herodes había sido nombrado Rey de los Judíos por el gobierno Romano; pero solamente era parcialmente Judío y no fue muy […]
