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.

Pay It Forward

November 24, 2009

To meet Mr. Walter Bruce of Greenville, South Carolina, to spend just a few precious moments in his company, far exceeds anything this world can offer to brighten the darkest of days, the gloomiest of moods, lifting spirits soaring. Such is the nature, the person of Mr. Bruce, who for many years until his retirement had been a faithful Customer of Eastern—and a Friend for Life.

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.

Camp Providence

July 31, 2009

My family and I just recently went on a mission trip. However, instead of journeying to a foreign country, our mission work took us to Camp Providence in Anderson, SC on Lake Hartwell. Originally founded by Archie Morgan, Camp Providence is an outreach ministry formally known as Crisis Ministries. Camp Providence takes place at the Old Providence United Methodist Church located directly on Lake Hartwell. The church is well over a hundred years old, and the facilities are kept in very good condition.

Virginia Mission Trip

August 6, 2009

In July, my family and I had the wonderful opportunity to go on a life changing mission trip with our church, Washington Baptist, to Jonesville, VA. Twenty adults and seventeen teenagers and children were able to make the trip. Jonesville is a small, sleepy little town with approximately 700 residents. Jonesville is not an affluent part of Virginia, and some of the residents are in financial crisis after having been laid off from the coal mine that has closed down. Driving through this town will make you feel like you have stepped back into the 1960’s.
