Take Care of our Minds

Where is the place that we live the most in? Where is that one spot we always return to and often can get stuck in? Where is that one place where we are most ourselves and no one can truly enter or know how we are feeling? It’s not a physical spot.. no it is…

Share Some Extra Kindness

Let’s be honest for a second (or more than a second)…. 2020 has not been the best year out there for so many reasons. It seems like everywhere we turn some disaster is happening…. The media is splashing front pages with stories of sickness, wars, politics, hate, etc…. There just seems to be something new…

Love

With the shocking passing this Sunday of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, baseball Coach John Altobelli and his wife and daughter Keri and Alyssa, mother and daughter Sarah and Payton Chester, basketball coach Christina Mauser, and the pilot Ara Zobayan I really wanted to share some love on my next blog post. Life is so…

Final Days in Guatemala

A Look Back

Guatemala: Clinic Days

Who else loves the feeling of a warm shower washing the dirt off your body after a long hard day of work. Seeing all the dirt and sweat swirl down the drain away from you, leaving you clean, fresh, and renewed. That is only the surface feeling of what it’s like when Jesus’ s love…

Guatemala Series: Stove Day

On our trip each day we had different tasks and jobs to do in two different small villages, Los Corrales and Cojahualten. Monday was stove day…. Looking back stove day was probably my favorite time of mission work in the villages. It was incredible to get to go into these people’s homes and yards and…

Guatemala

Meals with Chris
