    Posted on November 28, 2015 by in Uncategorized

    I just posted a blog called difficult. It was a small glimpse into one of the darkest and most challenging times of my life. If you haven’t read it, you can read it here. I figured it might be worthwhile to talk about what helped me to get out of these challenging times and overcome […]

  • Difficult

    Posted on November 12, 2015 by in Uncategorized

    It has been a long time since I wrote a blog. Not because I have not had anything to say, but because nothing I wanted to say felt completely honest. There have been so many great things going on here in Kenya, but it has been hard trying to write anything while knowing that I […]

    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.

    We Went on an Adventure

    Posted on December 27, 2014 by in Uncategorized

    (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 […]

    Half A Year

    Posted on July 15, 2014 by in Uncategorized

    The first half of the year has been hard. We have faced a number of big challenges in the ministry lately, but the hardest part has just been the demand on my time. I have felt like one person doing the work of ten. New leadership was taking over one of our orphanages. The Bible […]

    Defender

    Posted on March 16, 2014 by in Uncategorized

    Buying a car in Kenya is no small commitment. It can take months to find the right vehicle. 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

    When I first met Esther, she was one the happiest girls in the orphanage. She loved to jump rope and play games. I always looked forward to seeing her smile. 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 […]
