I recently made a visit to our Childcare Worldwide office in Peru. What an amazing trip! I was blessed by the kids we serve in Lima. It was yet another great reminder of the wonderful work I get to do as president of this ministry. Our work in Peru is unique in that we provide… Continue reading Lima, Peru
What a blessing it was to visit with Childcare Worldwide staff and sponsored children in Sri Lanka and Thailand! It’s funny how expectations change when we experience something new. This was my first visit to Sri Lanka, and I thought I knew what I was going to see there. Within the first few weeks of… Continue reading Sri Lanka and Thailand
What a blessing it has been to be in Chennai, India to visit our Childcare Worldwide programs! While it took a total of 3 days to reach this place (due to airport delays), it has been so wonderful to meet our CCW leaders and witness the ministry being provided to the children. It was a… Continue reading Greetings from Chennai, India!
Uganda is really growing on me! It’s so much different than Kenya. It’s really green everywhere, with leafy trees and dense jungle. Oh, and it’s humid too, something I’m not a big fan of. Nonetheless, the country really is beautiful, and its people are very welcoming. My last couple of days there were spent in… Continue reading Ssese Islands
I’m in Uganda! I’ve spent the last two days visiting CCW staff at our office in Entebbe, Uganda. The first thing I noticed about this place is how green and lush it is. It is certainly less dry than Kenya. It’s also humid, something that was also missing in Kenya. I’ve received a warm welcome… Continue reading Entebbe, Uganda
I’ve had another couple of great days in Kenya. I’m really going to miss this place. Yesterday we dedicated a new water catchment system in Kaptembwo Slum, a humble place with wonderful people. They greeted us with great hospitality and reverence. The church and school has many young students and dedicated teachers who really care.… Continue reading Kaptembwo and Olenkasurai
Wow. What a day. I was wondering when it would happen. It happened today. God melted my heart for these kids. It’s like a connection was made. I was humbled. Brought low. He showed me how blessed I am. I still have more than a week left in Africa, but if I had to leave… Continue reading Baringo County, Kenya
I’m here! After my airline delays, and rerouted flights, I finally made it to Kenya. I was picked up by my country director in Nairobi and taken to a hotel, where I promptly got into bed and slept for 7 hours. Not bad given the jet lag. This morning (Saturday, Feb 9), I was picked… Continue reading AFRICA!
It all started innocently enough. Drive to YVR, park, check in, security, walk to gate, get on plane. Fly to YYZ. That part worked as planned. Then, it didn’t. I arrived at 6:15 am and found out that my 8 am flight to Newark, NJ was cancelled. Okay. Simple. I get rebooked for a 12:15… Continue reading Are We There Yet?
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:6-7 I’m now just a little more than 24 hours away from my first visit to Africa. I think back to one… Continue reading “Casting all your anxieties on him…”
