I have just finished reading the book of Numbers for my daily devotions.  What has been so evident is God's strong presence and guidance through Moses and Aron as the Israelite leave the land of bondage heading for the Promised Land.  Yet, it is not a natural or easy transition form slave to free as evidenced by their stubborn, rebellious responses to the hardships of the journey.  Part of this response may be a character trait ingrained in them from...

Christ has died, Christ has risen, and Christ will come again, Hallelujah! Many of you repeated these same words during Easter services that you attended. Our Easter celebrations started the Thursday night before Good Friday. We joined with our World Renew colleagues and their family for a Passover Seder meal in their home. We enjoyed a traditional meal with lamb. A locally raised lamb was slaughtered for our meal. They employ Maasai guards and these guards killed and...

The job.

I am basically the assistant for World Renew’s work with their major partner in Mozambique—the Reformed Church of Mozambique.  I spend the day in their office, or out with their programs, giving advice and support on project management and community development, listening to complaints and problems and working towards solving them and learning.  Lots of that.   And all three aspects give me much joy.

I am a senior at Calvin College majoring in International Relations. I was born and raised in Korea, but my whole life changed at age 12 when my dad received a call to be a missionary. Our family moved to Indonesia for a year for my parents’ language training...

The service was outside someone’s home, and I am extremely thankful for the shade I could sit in. The service was...

Morning came.  Today is another beautiful day to experience God's Miraculous Creation.  We started our day out with cold refreshing showers.  We learned very quickly how precious water is and how we take it for granted.  Water soon ran out during our showers, and there we were still lathered in soap!!  The race was on to see who could...

Finally the day has arrived.  All of the fundraising & preperations have come to an end.  We meet at the church at 8:00pm to drop off all of our luggage & gather passports (wouldn't want anyone to forget those) so we are ready to go in the wee hours of the night.

At 12:30 we all meet at the church where Pastor Sid Dewaal & his wife Janet meets with the Team to say wish us well and say goodbyes.  He...

We first met our new flat mate Floyd, who is in his last week of volunteering here in Nkhoma. He does electrical work and has fixed many of the broken electrical tools. Old friends kept showing up at the apartment during the afternoon and one of them invited us over for the evening meal for which we were most grateful.

Just before bed time, Floyd tried to unlock the door and broke off the key in the...
