Feb 14 Different Parts, But One Body

Posted by PJ Lewis

So much different and so much the same! That’s what I experienced in the worship gathering this morning in Canchungo, Guinea-Bissau. We arrived around 10am to sing, with one simple drum being handed around to people to play from their seats. Everyone rhythmically clapped as worship songs were… More


Feb 13 Reflections from Guinea-Bissau

Posted by Mallory Mueller

Hello from Canchungo! It is a different life here in Africa. Even though we are on the other side of the world, we are not so different from one another. Genesis tells us God made us in His image. No matter who we are with, we must recognize others as fellow image bearers. As I read Genesis… More

Jan 10 Glasses for Villagers in Thailand

Posted by Thailand Team Member

This year our team was fortunate enough to have a volunteer named Doug from Colorado who could help with basic eye exams for the villagers of MaOhJo and the surrounding villages. We saw about 100 children, all who had excellent vision except for one who needed glasses. He seemed pretty happy about… More


Jan 9 Restless Nights in Thailand

Posted by Andrew Coray

Restless nights in Thailand result in the best days. All of your strength has to come from the Lord. Today (Saturday) was a fantastic day. It was Kids Day! Although hard work has produced some of the best conversations, there is nothing like tickling and chasing little kids around the Ma Oh Jo… More


Jan 5 Updates and Reflections: Thailand Team

Posted by Thailand Team Members

A few of us began our day playing with the kids for VBS. We started with some singing to the Lord, and the kids do not hold back. Their teachers make sure they are not shy about singing praises to our God. That has been such an encouraging, beautiful thing to participate in. Then we kept the VBS… More


Jan 4 Team Thailand Village Update

Posted by Peyton Bell

Let’s be honest. When I signed up for this trip, I knew I was going to have to get out of my comfort zone and do things I had never done before, because that’s just part of the job description. I thought I’d be trekking through the jungle, clearing my way through the foliage with a machete (the… More


Nov 30 2016 The Hope That Is in Me

Posted by Sarah Salazar

Another early morning, but strangely I'm very thankful to be awake at 4:20am. As I lay awake in the dark, the beautiful but haunting sound of the Muslim call to prayer begins a stirring in my soul. In the quiet of the morning my heart aches for the people of this city. I spend some time praying… More


Nov 29 2016 "What you do to the least of these, you do to me" - Jesus

Posted by Ernie Partida

Today was an eye-opening experience. We visited a children's center run by a South Korean couple. There we played games with the Syrian kids. Trying to communicate with the kids was a little hard but we used hand signals to help us. The Syrian and Lebanese translators were a great help. We did a… More


Nov 26 2016 The Power of Asking Questions

Posted by Josh Hawley

Our day started by arriving at the Lebanese high school for 7:30am chapel. This is a private, evangelical school which has many followers of Christ in the student body, but also a good number of non-believers (including Muslims). The education level is so excellent that non-Christian families want… More
