Building relationships

Bowden and LiamA group from California who arrived here in North Wales to run a basketball camp was short-handed. So, they asked my team members and me if we wanted to help them. We eagerly accepted the invitation.

Free indeed

I have come to set the captives free. These sweet words ran through my mind and heart as I sat listening to my new friend share her life-changing story with me.

Time well spent

I recently enjoyed spending the morning with two sweet ladies—one from Gambia and the other from Iraq.

God's creation

Wales clinicRecently, a team from California arrived in Wales, and we helped them lead a basketball clinic for the kids here.

Best friends forever

Cottage 3 was the cottage to stay away from—the cottage where the children were known for atrocious behavior.

Our Dear Nikki

During this summer, our team has had the privilege to build a relationship with a 74-year-old Thai woman named Nikki.

God is at work

I spent a lot of time recently with my friend Patty, whom I met at the English Center where I am serving in Southeast Asia. 

Led by the Spirit

Recently, our group was given the opportunity to give a short message on a Sunday morning radio show.

God provides

Accidents happen. Or so experience has taught me. When building houses in the Philippines with rebar, concrete, and 40-pound hollow block, this statement remains ever true.

Out of the comfort zone

Bowden“Servants don’t have rights.” Those were my dad’s parting words to me before I stepped on the plane that brought me to Wales.

 

Ask for people

I was looking in the market for fresh produce when I saw a shop that had replica jerseys and souvenirs. I stopped in to see if I could find something good to purchase for someone back home.

Shedding tears

I was talking to a young woman—probably around 22—who needed basics like food, diapers for her baby and some hygiene products.

Call to prayer

A friend and I were downtown, finding clothes for me to wear here. I had just arrived and needed some more culturally appropriate attire.

Grace, not works

Externally, everything seems right. Here in Butuan City, religion runs rampant.

God loves and forgives

While in downtown Bangor, I was walking around the place to get a feel of everything. I even got to share my story with a Welsh woman in a secondhand store.
