“I [Paul] planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.” I Corinthians 3:6 (NIV) I traveled along dusty roads in Haiti two weeks ago, through parched fields thirsty for life-giving rain. As we journeyed, I saw farmers plowing furrows in their fields in hope that seasonal rains would begin soon. Where [...]
I recently was honored to meet Madam Christian Jean Cimilien, a 67-year-old widow and mother of 11 grown children. She’s a member of the community water management committee in Lefevre, Haiti. The community is working with Food for the Hungry (FH) to create a source of clean water by catching rain water. And with the goal of [...]
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13) The word joy jumps out at me in Romans 15:13. The concept of being filled with joy (and peace) is amazing. How often do we [...]
I honestly don’t know how many bridges I crossed this morning on the way to work. I drive on a freeway that crosses over myriad side streets, and navigates a pass through the Phoenix North Mountain nature preserve. I don’t even think about the steel and concrete that take me 16 miles to work and [...]
Like many families this Christmas season, our family has had it’s share of sickness. This past week, the flu has made its way through four kids and me. Jennica is due Christmas, so we’ve been trying our best to keep her from getting sick. It’s easy for us to buy antibacterial soaps and sprays, wash [...]
I’m hiking the Grand Canyon, Rim to Rim, in one day. And in so doing have gone on a journey of pondering this idea: That a holistically healthy life is best exposed in acts of compassion. Probably not a novel idea, but one that we should at least contemplate.
The Mbale area of Eastern Uganda has a long history of mudslides, largely due to human interaction with the environment (destruction of forest and poor farming methods). On June 25th 2012, a major slide occurred, burying at least three villages and displacing many families. The number of casualties is still being investigated. It took local [...]
Washing dishes may seem like a common enough practice, but did you know that not everyone in the world knows it’s necessary to wash their tableware? And if you – like me – don’t like washing dishes, this may sound like a pretty good idea. But let’s think about that for a minute. A regular [...]
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that at least 400 million children worldwide suffer from intestinal worms. A common problem associated with world hunger, intestinal worms prevent a person’s body from absorbing nutrients. In fact, they daily hijack up to 25% percent of the nutrients consumed by already-malnourished children. To put the problem into perspective, [...]
It’s 5 a.m. one chilly morning in Mariwa village, and Florence is up and ready for the day ahead. She quickly sips her tea to help her energize. As the lady of the house, Florence knows an early start will give her an edge over most other women going down to the stream to fetch water.
