And if not, He is still good. 10

A few months ago I was reading Daniel 3, the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. I’ve heard this story dozens of times, and it always makes me think of flannel boards from old Sunday School days (anyone else remember those?).

Going to Haiti 1

Back in April I went on a missions trip to Haiti. Some trips are ordained from the Lord, and this was one of them. It came at a perfect time. My best friend’s six-week old baby died a week before the trip, and the funeral was three days before I left. […]

The State of Haiti 2

Well, I’ve been back two weeks now, so it’s probably about time I write about this trip. There are so many things I want to write I don’t know where to begin. So I’ll just start typing away. This will likely be a few posts for me to brain-dump all I saw […]
