A Week Of Miracles

We are still reeling from our experience over the past week when we were away in the villages of Guatemala translating for a team that was here serving with the International Ministry of Healing.  We are trying to get our minds to catch up to what happened and quite honestly, we may never be able […]

Do your part…no matter how big or small, it’s ALL important!

We had the opportunity this past week to help out at our church here in Guatemala, Iglesia Ciudad de Refugio, with a medical mission team.  A team came from Georgia and we were helping with translation.  The physician’s assistant I was working with said to me at one point that before she came on this […]

One of my favorite stories in the bible is when Jesus and Peter walk on water.  Aside from the miraculous implications of Jesus’ deity implied from it, I think its lesson is something that we must never forget.  I often use it as an example when teaching others that we must not let the turbulence […]

The Call to Battle

Every soldier knows the smell of war, battle, and a call to arms.  We get a taste of it when we are training in the field or on the rifle range.  I picked up the scent for a moment as I prepared for our next presentation early this morning.  It caught me off guard, but […]

Persecution

We have been learning about persecution and martyrdom this week in class.  It has been quite interesting.  I think the most eye opening part of it for me has been the realization that we generally don’t think about it or talk about it in most American Christian circles.  Why?  I believe it is mostly for […]
