Hope in Nicaragua: Hugs From Little Children

“She extends her hand to the poor; yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy. Proverbs 31:20     Garbage littered the streets.  Homes were made out of metal sheeting.  Sewage ran down the road.  Laundry was draped over wire fencing.  Home after home, street after street, the further out we drove from Managua, the more poverty we witnessed.  We were going to a primary school to serve lunch and work with the children.  “What will the school be like?” I wondered as I witnessed the gradual decline outside the window of our shuttle.   I thought I’d prepared myself...

Giving Him Back to God

Laughter and conversation filled the room as we waited for the graduates to file in.  It didn’t seem possible that four years had passed – four years of dorm rooms, vacation visits, exams, summer employment, four years of preparation for the career and future God had planned.   “No, it isn’t possible,” I thought.  “He can’t be graduating.”   The music started and the graduates began to file in.  Daniel smiled as he passed our row, his walk proud and strong as he made his way to his seat.   “Wasn’t it just yesterday he was graduating High School?  It...

May I Introduce Him?

“I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple.  Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.  And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!”  And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.”  Isaiah 6:1-4     I can only imagine the terror, awe, shock Isaiah experienced as he stood before the throne of...
