¿Por qué la gringa se interesa en Honduras?

Quiero decir muchisimas gracias a todos mis amigos catrachos por su entusiasmo en estos dias. Algunos me han preguntaron porque esta gringuita de Missouri, USA tiene tan interés en Honduras. Es un historia bien largo. Crecía en una familia Cristiana, asistio a la iglesia cada semana. Y realmente mi fe, mi relacion con Dios, me… Continue reading ¿Por qué la gringa se interesa en Honduras?

I will say it again: Rejoice!

Once again, I’m inspired by a friend’s blog. This past weekend, my pastor spoke on the topic of Joy. It was the second of a two part series. Unfortunately, I missed the first part because I was in Oklahoma watching little Sawyer Baker being born. (That was quite a joy itself). However, this night impacted… Continue reading I will say it again: Rejoice!

Party After the Race

Sunday night, Aaron & I were kind of talking about everything that has happened in the last 3 years that we've known each other.  He was trying to remember some people that aren't in Columbia anymore, so we got out the photo albums.  It put me into a nostalgic mood.  Especially seeing so many people… Continue reading Party After the Race

snapshots of community

The weekend was exhausting.  But I guess if there was one word to use to summarize the whole experience, it would be "community."  Maybe that sounds cliche.  I think we do tend to over-use that word at the Rock... but only because it's so absolutely essential.  When I look back on the weekend, I see… Continue reading snapshots of community

Psalm 84:11 - Psalm 85:13 Chorus: Lord take me to the place where love and faithfulness meet together where… Continue reading Psalm 84:11 – Psalm 85:13

Buenos Dias De El Salvador!

Sunday I've been here since Friday.  The flights were uneventful, and we got easily through customs.  We're staying at the Iglesia Gran Comision en San Salvador.  When we got here there was a problem with the water, so we went to a church member's house to shower.  What an interesting experience.  I bathed with a… Continue reading Buenos Dias De El Salvador!
