The 410 Bridge

December 1, 2009

When I left Africa, I knew I would have trouble finding the words to accurately describe the past week. God’s faithfulness and generosity are abounding across our entire world, and I was fortunate to get the opportunity in November to serve His African children. Africa is an incredible place to visit. The people are the most joyful and gracious individuals I have ever met. I traveled with a team from my church, NewSpring, to Kenya.

Seeing the Good!

December 21, 2009

What a blessing to talk to people that see the good in others and not the negatives. I have a very special Aunt Betty that is a perfect example in this respect. Aunt Betty coordinates family functions because she has a genuine love for each individual. Aunt Betty has reminded me that even the unlovable are lovable.

Peru Mission Trip

November 9, 2009

This past October I had the opportunity to go to the Village of Manzano, in the Panoa Region of Peru, deep in the Andes Mountains. Our mission was to conduct reading workshops with the Quechua Indians. These people have a spoken language but no written language. Terry and Karla Smith, a missionary team living in the region for over 25 years, developed a written language for the Quechua. With the help of Wycliffe Bible Translators, the Smiths have translated the New Testament into Quechuan and are currently working on the Old Testament, so that these people have the opportunity to know the Lord through the written word.
