What’s the Plan?

The Bible is very interesting when it talks about God’s plans. He has personal plans for us (Jeremiah 29:11) and even when it seems like things aren’t going according to plan, God tells us that he is still working behind the scenes for our good (Romans 8:28). God is a personal God, so it makes(…)

Do You Not Remember?

In my quiet time, I am slowly reading through the book of Mark, which is the shortest of the four gospels, but is packed with great stories, teachings, and examples set by Jesus. Mark didn’t mess around with his writing, and as such, often packs quite a punch. The other day in my study time(…)

Responding to Reckless Faith (A Personal Confession)

Here in Haiti, unless I have other church engagements, I have been attending Port-au-Prince Fellowship, which is an English-speaking church originally targeted (it seems to me) at the large number of expats, NGO volunteers, and foreign government workers.

Winter is finally coming in force, and very soon 2014 will be a thing of the past. I can’t believe that the holidays are upon us, and now that flights are booked,  I should be spending this Thanksgiving with our churches in India. This trip, which was originally scheduled to begin on November 3, had to(…)

November ’14 Update

This year I celebrated both my 30th birthday and the Thanksgiving holiday with a whirlwind trip to India. For a short trip, with only 9 full days on the ground, HGIM India team member, Dan, and I had the the opportunity to speak in a three-day pastor’s conference, about 17 different churches, and an open-air outreach. During the pastor’s(…)

The Journey to Perfection

I am a perfectionist. I have been this way most of my life. Every personality test I have ever taken says that I am a high achiever with extremely high expectations for myself. These high expectations flood not only into the amount of things I desire to accomplish successfully, but also into the level of(…)
