Just One Grain of Sand

Imagine... ...you’re walking along the beach and you have one bucket with you. It’s not your job to collect all of the sand but a part of you feels responsible for doing so. You can only collect one grain of sand at a time if you want to do it well and sometimes it could [...]

The Funny Thing about Obedience

By | 2018-06-13T21:04:40+00:00 January 23rd, 2018|Compassion Corp, Discipleship|

When I Said, Yes... When I said yes to God, I had no idea what that meant. When I said yes to ministry, I had no idea how to serve. When I said yes to Haiti, I had no idea how my life would change. That’s the funny thing about obedience, when we say yes [...]

The Baby In The Manger Is The Man On The Cross

By | 2018-06-14T15:27:12+00:00 December 28th, 2017|Compassion Corp|

The Purpose of Jesus We all know the story of Baby Jesus. We tell it every year at Christmas time. We teach it to our kids before they know how to write their own names. We use the story to tell the gospel. None of these things are bad, but I think that too often [...]

Your Perceptions Impact People

By | 2018-06-14T15:32:00+00:00 December 15th, 2017|Compassion Corp, Worldview|

Ethnocentrism Regardless of worldview or cultural upbringing, we all have ethnocentric tendencies. Ethnocentrism is the way that we evaluate other cultures according to preconceptions that are based in an individual’s home culture. The initial reaction is to see your own culture as right and to filter every other culture in relation to that (usually negatively). [...]

Taste and See – Patience Matters

By | 2018-06-14T15:38:43+00:00 November 27th, 2017|Compassion Corp, Worldview|

Patient Surrender Here in Haiti, it can take an entire day to make your dinner. From the time you buy the meat and produce in the market to the time it is on your table for dinner, most of a day could have passed. I am pretty patient in most situations but when it comes [...]

Slow Down, Be Thankful

By | 2018-06-14T15:44:03+00:00 November 14th, 2017|Compassion Corp, Worldview|

The Sun Rise This morning as I watched the sun rise over the mountains in the beautiful country that I get to call home I was overwhelmed with thankfulness. Before moving to Haiti, I had no idea how blessed I was (and still am). I realized how many things I took for granted and never [...]

What Sponsorship Looks Like On The Mountaintop

By | 2017-10-27T19:16:44+00:00 October 27th, 2017|Compassion Corp, Discipleship, Holistic Care|

On The Mountain Top Today I had the opportunity to travel to Cabaret with part of my team. We were invited to visit Timoun La Gras, a kids club within our sponsorship program.  We parked our truck at the bottom of a mountain and started to find our way to the “mountain church”. None of [...]

Searching For Joy

By | 2018-06-14T16:22:45+00:00 October 17th, 2017|At the Movies, Compassion Corp|

I think that my relationship with the Lord since day one can be summed up as “searching for joy”. Before I found Jesus, my life was almost entirely void of happiness. There definitely was not any joy in my life. There were not many things that I thought could bring me joy. I guess you [...]

Masterpiece

Walking through parts of Philadelphia this month we have seen so many different styles of art; on walls, in homes, graffiti, professional murals, architecture, you name it, it’s here. Some of it dates back hundreds of years. All of it is beautiful, none of it is the same. Tonight I am struck with the reality [...]

Love Thy Neighbor

By | 2018-06-14T16:35:43+00:00 August 1st, 2017|Compassion Corp, Holistic Care|

The unemployment rate in Haiti is 70%. To put that in context, during the peak of the Great Depression, the United States was around 30% unemployment. Living wage in Haiti is the equivalent of around $5.50 per day. Minimum wage in the United States is $8+ per hour. For every Haitian that has a job, [...]
