No language barrier

On a recent weekend, I joined three other workers in providing a children’s program at an Arabic prayer conference for Austria.
       

Step of faith

Recently, I was able to witness three people take the next and biggest step in faith—being baptized. This is a big step for all followers of Jesus Christ, but in the United States, we don’t always recognize what a big step it is and what it represents.
       

Learning lessons

My first month in Vienna was a little rocky. Nothing bad was happening. I was just having a harder time adjusting to a new place, new people and a new language.
       

A broken heart

I make my way through a field of pestilence and foul odors, trying to hold my breath as much as I can. Crows circulate above me. I’m in the middle of a landfill. And next to it, thousands of people make their home.
       

Discipleship

During our last few weeks in the village, my team was able to disciple some new believers through daily Bible studies.
       

God's grace

Halfway through our time in the village, Sam, one of the guys on my team, became really sick.

All we know are beginnings and ends, starts and finishes—point A to point B.
       

Humble heroes

When I think of a village, I think of no electricity, water from the river and food from the jungle. That is exactly what I saw at this village my teammates and I visited.



       

A peek into the slum

South Asia girlTin roofs. Clothes hanging to dry. Stray dogs and cats. Dirt roads. Buckets of water. Trash. This is what I saw in a slum in South Asia.
       

Dusty feet

I shook the dust off my feet.
       

Free and clean

A man drove here to the Hospitality House in Huntsville from Dallas to pick up his brother who was being released from prison.
       

Blessing

Students blessingSitting in an office working on files all day isn't my idea of fun, but there are times when it is necessary here at World Relief.

 

       

What God desires

The ceiling leaked, the fans were noisy, and dogs kept barking outside. In this building, the congregation of Shiloh Baptist Church met.
