CELEBRATE! in 2016

Sponsoring Compassion kids is huge to me. Meeting them in person during my time here on planet Earth was certainly only a wild dream. In 2015 God had other plans, and by His gracious provision I met two of them in El Salvador in September. Compassion’s mission is “releasing children from poverty in Jesus name.” […]

Jesus Came to Set Us Free

  It’s been a time of God-incedences. The power of the Holy Spirit that lives within me makes it much too difficult to see these things as mere co-incidences. These words of Jesus were my focus during a Bible study lesson several days ago: “The Spirit of The Lord is on Me, because He has […]

From Whole Grains to Cinnamon Bread

I’ve been so encouraged by all of you that are enjoying the breads, and also helping me in this way to reach my monetary goals for this trip. It occurred to me that it might be kinda cool to show the grain before it’s milled and the flour after it’s gone through my Nutri Grain […]

What is Compassion All About?

Lots of questions surrounding my upcoming El Salvador mission adventure have focused on who exactly is Compassion International, and what exactly do they do. The best way I know to share that with you (short of coming back with amazing stories and testimonies) is to send you on your own virtual journey to Compassion’s website.  […]
