Mountain Mission

We recently returned from spending a week in the mountain city of La Dalia, Nicaragua. With a group of 4 from Oklahoma and some of our staff here in Nicaragua we ventured into cooler temperatures, "rustic" living and mountain hiking to take the Gospel message into 17 schools. Many of the schools we visited were… Continue reading Mountain Mission

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. The house is small by anyone's standard, but it is a beautiful blessing to the family who will soon be living in it. The family receiving the house, and… Continue reading Thankful

We still have a house in Texas, though we won't step foot in that house until August of 2017.

Future Presidents of the World

Sometimes working with kids can be hard. They are squirmy, loud, messy and have incredibly short attention spans. We try to teach them life lessons and all they want to talk about is pizza and the latest cartoon. It can be a challenging, up-hill battle, but it is one worth fighting. You see, this year… Continue reading Future Presidents of the World

Waiting on the Lord

For the past month Way of the Cross has been hosting a Missionary Training School at our base camp in Nicaragua. We have had about 45 students who have been going through intense classes and hands-on learning. Phillip and I were excited to do a two-part class talking about marriage and family in missions and… Continue reading Waiting on the Lord

Nicaraguan Life

I first titled this post "Nicaraguan Adventures." We¬†certainly have been on many adventures since coming here, but to be honest it is everyday life that has touched my heart the most. For the first month of our time in Nicaragua we were busy with groups, work and a lot of evangelism. We had a large… Continue reading Nicaraguan Life
