Ministry, Family & House Update

It has been a busy summer and I haven't been good about updating. We had a lot of our staff from the U.S. join us in Nicaragua and the camp was full and busy for June and part of July.

Thankful

In a previous post I mentioned how Way of the Cross is building a house in a very poor community, where we do weekly Bible studies.

Building a Team

If you follow us on Facebook, you already know that we are trying to build our ministry team. We want to get 100 people who will be committed to praying for us and giving $10.00 a month. You may be wondering why we chose these numbers. When Phillip first suggested it, I said "you know that would… Continue reading Building a Team

What’s Going On and What’s Coming Up

Well it has been much too long since my last post! God is richly blessing our family and we are so excited about what He has for us in the next few months.

Nicaragua Med-Fest Part 2

If you missed part 1 of this post you can read it here: Nicaragua Med-Fest Part 1 During Med-Fest Phillip was busy, as usual, running back and forth making sure everyone was busy and everything was running smoothly, but when the kids got sick (all running fairly high fevers) I found myself at a standstill. I… Continue reading Nicaragua Med-Fest Part 2
