  • A Land Flowing with Milk and More Milk!
    I love sharing beautiful Burundi stories to counteract so much bad news. My friend Evariste started a stunningly effective cow project a number of years ago, which has totally transformed his communit...

  • ‘Some joy during these tough days…’
    It happens each year at about this time. Tharcisse, faithful long-term Scripture Union accountant, writes me an emotive plea to intervene on his and the rest of the staff’s behalf: “Hello ...

    I never thought I’d be writing about sanitary towels or tampons. Today I met Eva. She’s a 32-year-old entrepreneur. She blew me away, for two reasons: Firstly, because she got a Masters degree in ...

    By God’s grace, I faced a situation with a fellow believer in which I was tempted to remain angry. I sometimes wonder if those with “engineer minds” recognize how harshly they come across! My husband made a phone call to the person, and graciously thanked her for her willingness to volunteer to help with the conference we’re planning, but stated that he felt she may need to just attend and rest since she has much going on in her life. I was grateful for his protection of me, but awoke yesterday with a strong sense that I was to speak with her. After much time in the Word and in prayer, I called. Although I truly don’t think she knew how she had upset me, I knew that unity is of utmost importance in the body of Christ. And I know that He uniquely gifts each of us for His glory. I told my sister in Christ that I would love to utilize her strengths in our next conference. We both recognized and appreciated the differences between us, and, in the long run, my countenance was lifted. Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow!

    I’m in the middle of a very busy season - preparing for a marriage conference to be held February 2-4. Was already in a state of exhaustion from a daughter’s wedding (just before Christmas). I wrote poems of gratitude and had many opportunities to express these thoughts to family and friends. Will eventually try to share an edited version of one! Thank you for encouraging so many - I was grateful to happen upon your site recently, as I had followed you on Twitter a while back. Blessings to you and your family from friends in Decatur, Alabama (USA)!

    The more we practice forgiveness, the more freeing it becomes. Remember it may not always work out the way we hope with the other person, right away. Trust God, It will it will work out, in His timing.
