(If you are wondering, we will be returning to Guatemala in January. I am both excited and ready to return.) I am learning to stop … Continue reading Thoughts on this year…
Memories are special. I wrote this in August, the week I prepared a party for me students at Hope of Life to perform their dances.

My head throbbed and the pain in my neck seemed relentlessly, but I was not going to let them steal my sweet morning time with Jesus again.

Maybe it is strange to use the quote of an astronaut jumping out of a spacecraft onto the surface of the moon to start this update. But I find it rather fitting and maybe I can convince you of the same. … Continue reading One Small Step
