The White Lady’s Pet Chicken

Above is the group of ladies who prayed that they would one day meet my mother. And oh, was it ever a joyful time when that day finally came–full of celebrations, singing, feasting, and many, many gifts. My mom spoke to them about spending time in the Word every day (while my dad was outside speaking with the men). The… (more…)

Follow Up

When I first started living out my faith, I pictured evangelism, conversions, and baptisms as the most exciting part of outreach. My contemplation of  “follow up” was this grueling thing that came afterwards full of disappointments and missionary “burn out.” Truthfully, I could have never been more wrong!

Kopsiro Outreach

If you have any questions, or haven’t… (more…)

I am so excited. They are really devoted to make this thing work. Their teacher (Ruben pictured to the right)… (more…)

When we showed up, over half the class room was filled with men. Our director asked them “what are you doing here? This is a ladies class!” Turns out all… (more…)

Children Raising Children

One thing for sure, in many parts of Africa, the children raise the children. You will often see very young girls (even as young as six) carrying their baby brothers and sisters on their backs. Once, I was walking by the elementary school in my neighborhood and saw an older student holding a younger one up by a leg swatting… (more…)
