Mercy Ships

On Saying Goodbye to Texas

On Saying Goodbye to Texas

I stood on the porch of the ranch house last night and watched the fireflies flicker and hum with the sunset. It reminded me of my first trip to Africa with Mercy Ships where I saw the very same thing, at a picnic on the Congo River.

Standing there, I felt the Lord whisper into my heart: Gratitude is the portal. Everything you have at this moment is already enough. You are enough and I am more than enough. 

Remember this. 

So I'm remembering tonight. The lovely Walter Family who has been part of our story for more than a decade. I'm grateful to you for letting Sam and me be part of your family's story. 

Super Tom - The Example

Super Tom - The Example

I’ve heard the words “Tom what’s your location?” spoken over his radio a dozen times by a dozen people in a thirty-minute span, yet somehow Tom always had time to stop and shake a man’s hand and to look him in the eye. How is that possible?

It's possible because Tom was a full-time construction worker in the Kingdom of God, building stuff that makes earth look more like heaven.
