Missionary Training School

October is coming quickly, and with it our 4th Missionary Training School. It is a month-long, intensive training for anyone who feels the Lord calling them into ministry. It is a time for the students to seek the Lord, learn from others, go out and minister and, prayerfully, develop the call God has on their… Continue reading Missionary Training School

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

Jesus in the Schools

We had an amazing experience here at the WOTC base camp in Nicaragua last Thursday and Friday. We had close to 600 kids from the school down the street in our church (about 300 on Thursday and 275 on Friday), listening to the Gospel message and teachings on how to stay strong in the Lord.… Continue reading Jesus in the Schools

Life on the Mission Field

We are back in Nicaragua and we will be here for a while. How long, you ask? Well, we aren't exactly sure. We still have a house in Texas, though we won't step foot in that house until August of 2017. For now, we are just taking it a year at a time, believing the… Continue reading Life on the Mission Field

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

We have had about 45 students who have been going through intense classes and hands-on learning.

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

Nicaragua for Jesus (from the eyes of a missionary family of 5)

In case you haven't heard, we are in Nicaragua. I know, I haven't been good about posting, but recently I've had a good excuse: we haven't had internet. To be honest, not having internet has been quite enjoyable. Now not having AC has been a bit more of a challenge, but who said being a… Continue reading Nicaragua for Jesus (from the eyes of a missionary family of 5)

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

Nicaragua Med-Fest Part 1

We've been home from Nicaragua for nearly a week now and we have been busy catching up on our rest and getting settled back into our routine. A trip like that is hard on the family, but worth it when you look back at all the Lord did. During the pre-trip we stayed very busy preparing for… Continue reading Nicaragua Med-Fest Part 1
