    A Spiritual World

    Posted on April 2, 2015 by in Uncategorized

    10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

    (This is a post I wrote back in April. I just never got around to organizing all the pictures and putting it up.) Three nights in the past week I have fallen asleep exhausted on the couch before 8 o’clock. I have been extremely busy trying to work on some leadership adjustments at the school […]

People here are notorious for forgoing maintenance and even more known for covering up the abuse with temporary fixes. Then there is the price. The import taxes can increase the cost of a vehicle by 50% to […]

    Esther

    Posted on January 31, 2014 by in Uncategorized

She was a normal, happy, healthy child. But there was something inside her that couldn’t be seen with the eye. Esther is HIV positive. For […]

  • An “Average” Day

    Posted on September 8, 2013 by in Uncategorized

    People always asked me while we were in the States, “What does an average day look like?” Here is yesterday: Woke up, did my quiet time, checked the rat poison, got ready for my day, and helped Abby with Adalyn.
