August 5, 2017

Hello from the Boston airport! We’ve now reached the end of our time here, and are preparing to fly home. Since I’ve last updated you, we’ve hung a few hundred more door-hangers, painted doors, doorframes, walls, and rails, got to unwrap and assemble Encounter Church’s furniture, and do some more specific plumbing and electrical things…

Neon Orange Trash Bags and Honking Bostonians

August 5, 2017

  Hello from Boston! We’ve now been here 4 days, and there’s so much to tell! We’ve traveled up and down streets, picking up hundreds of abandoned cigarettes, Dunkin Donuts cups, and other oddities left on streets.

In the Sitting

July 27, 2017

Swaziland…through the eyes of a first-timer I am, by nature, a doer. I have to stay busy and am constantly making to-do lists. I’ve even been known to go back and add completed tasks to my lists, just to have the pleasure of seeing them crossed off. It’s a sickness, I know. When our team…

Loving Others

July 23, 2017

Hola from Ecuador!  We finally made it and are getting settled in to our hotel and our routine but unfortunately our Wifi is a little bit spotty so right now I am sitting outside under the Andean night sky listening to the sound of barking dogs and typing with chilly fingers.  One of the joys…
