Matthew 11

This is part of the song that Curt sang several nights ago that prompted me to write my last blog. He’s so amazing. I’ve got another recorded worship set from devotions last night that I’m trying to upload too. Here is a song that I hope brings as […]

God’s Still Working On Me…..

I remember a song my mom used to have all us kids sing when she ran our children’s church back when I was in the 3rd or 4th grade. Randomly that song came to me tonight – It was called He’s Still Working On Me.¬† He’s still working […]

Never Too Young for a Mango….

Often in the afternoon the girls will sit outside and eat mangos. It’s become part of their “daily” routine. After mangos it’s time for a nap – so they really like to drag out the snack as long as they can! Today was a little interesting. As I […]

Movie Night

Every Friday night for the past two years, Jose and I have shown movies across the street off the church wall. It’s almost like a drive-in only no cars! Kids and their parents bring chairs and blankets and sit in the church courtyard. When it’s a really good […]

Peace In The Midst of Unrest

Is it possible to have peace in the midst of such unrest? We woke up yesterday and over 120 employees gathered on the courtyard and circled up in prayer. I told them about what the Americans were doing for them…praying and fasting. Many of them told me that […]
