The Unexpected One

Jesus delights in using unexpected people. Our Lord did not peruse the population of Israel for the “most likely to succeed” when selecting His disciples. Instead, He chose fishermen, a tax collector, a demon-possessed harlot (redeemed!), and several were likely political extremists. The Savior-King . . .

Phone a Friend

Several trainers in our home town continue meeting in small groups. They follow government guidelines for social distancing, wearing masks, and cancel or divide gatherings of more than ten people.

Many unbelievers are not willing to take extra risks. Their love fails. Believing and trusting hearts do not faint, or give in even a little to the panic fed by any political agenda.

Crushed Hope

It hurts to see hope crushed. Tens of thousands of people watched in despair as their shacks were razed and paltry belongings crushed. Hope crushed becomes hope reignited in the hands of Jesus. While traveling, we get to share stories of hope reignited in other parts of this transforming nation.
