Sri Lanka and Thailand

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...
Greetings from Chennai, India!

Greetings from Chennai, India!

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...
Ssese Islands

Ssese Islands

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....
Entebbe, Uganda

Entebbe, Uganda

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....

AFRICA!

AFRICA!

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),...
Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?

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...
“Casting all your anxieties on him…”

“Casting all your anxieties on him…”

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...

Differences

My experience leading a nonprofit is now almost 2 months old. Nonprofits are different. That might be an obvious statement, but I didn’t really know how different they were from for-profit companies until recently. Instead of thinking about increasing shareholder...
