Then Monday morning happened. We woke up to the news that Iquitos was on total lock-down. Airports, seaways, and roads were all shut down. We were not allowed to leave. No one could get in.

I learned how to smile even when everything inside of me was weeping. There was no light at the end of this never-ending tunnel.

The Word started it all, sustains it all, and will settle it all. The Word is the beginning, middle, and end. I was meditating on the Book of John, particularly […]
If I could be jealous of anything in this life, I would be jealous of those who came to God (through Christ) early. The pain, loss, misunderstandings, heartbreaks, and wasted time that I could have avoided. All the wasted efforts and trivial pursuits that could have been avoided. Oh boy. […]
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:13). Love… We say it, we think we know it, we give it, and we hope to experience it as we go about our day to day life. Love… That four letter […]
