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.
       

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.

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.
