2018 Holiday Bed Delivery BLITZ – Bed Brigade

During this Advent season, as we anticipate the incarnation, Immanuel, God with us, we hear the admonition to be ready, to watch.  We will remember God’s preparation for His Son to enter our world through Mary, Joseph and John the Baptist who was preparing the way. We also remember their long journey as strangers in a strange land.  We remember the neglect of those around them forcing the Holy Family to a cow stall for Christ’s birth.  Continue reading “2018 Holiday Bed Delivery BLITZ – Bed Brigade”

Water Mission Project in Indonesia

I recently returned from a trip to Indonesia where we visited some of Water Mission’s safe water projects. It was encouraging to see how God is at work in this distant part of the world.

Indonesia is the fourth largest country in the world following China, India, and the United States. It is also the world’s most populous Muslim country. The differences between predominantly Muslim and predominantly Christian communities were fascinating and apparent as we visited a wide range of communities. It was amazing to learn how God is using all of these projects to transform people’s lives.   Continue reading “Water Mission Project in Indonesia”
