  Meet Josh, Mariela and Rut…. A few weeks ago we had the privilege of meeting these three on a vision trip to Guatemala. Together they lead a ministry to help children in Guatemala escape the cycle of poverty. Have you ever met people you instantly admired? Confession time…this does not happen with me very often.

This blog is reposted from some of the missionaries working closely with our Care Pointe in Njojane, Swaziland  Last night, Steph and I were doing dishes together after a long day. I love that we have the time to debrief — we go separate ways all day, but catching each other up in the evening helps keep us connected in our different areas in ministry. Lately, he spends usually two days a week out at Njojane, one of our newest CarePoints. Through partnership with a stateside church,...
