I saw her from across the field as she was slowly walking toward me. She held her head high with quiet confidence and subtle sureness. We walked toward each other like life-long friends. She reached her hand out to shake mine, but you know me, I embraced her as a sister and forever friend. We…

He Took Them in His Arms

June 12, 2017

Over the last year, any time I ventured near my fridge several Swazi children, waving to me from a colorful postcard, have greeted me. Their sweet smiles kept me mindful to me to pray for our Warren Baptist team as they traveled to Swaziland this past May-June of 2016. When I placed that little card…
