Planting Seeds

Isa 55:11 “In the same way, my words leave my mouth, and they don’t come back without results. My words make the things happen that I want to happen.

Not Your Typical Teenager

For the past three months, there has been a team visiting from Slavic Missionary Bible School (SMBS). One day, they wondered upon Eli’s home while taking a shortcut from their house to the vegetable market.

Making New Friends while Saying Goodbye to Others

Today I said goodbye to my company. They have begun their 40 hour journey home. However, as they leave, I will have the pleasure of building friendships and relationships with those that they leave behind. After Lisa and I spoke at the women’s conference, the church  asked me to come and lead a bible study for the women! What we preached was… (more…)
