Are You Longing For Relationship?

By | 2017-11-22T14:48:23+00:00 November 22nd, 2017|Compassion Corp|

I love, love. I’m talking about the kind of love that awakes you out of the depths of your sleep, simple thoughts of moments shared with them warming your heart. A love that causes you to travel miles upon miles just to spend a short amount of time with them. Love that causes you to [...]

“Moses’ arms soon became so tired he could no longer hold them up. So Aaron and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side of Moses, holding up his hands. So his hands held steady until sunset” Exodus 17:12 Thank You!  I read this and I automatically think [...]

Leader – Do You Need Replenished?

By | 2017-11-20T18:00:52+00:00 November 20th, 2017|Leadership|

Exhausted Leader The days are whizzing by and it can feel like wheels are spinning constantly. I've thought it and I've heard it processed – the idea that the mission we come with feels so far. Especially for a leader, who quickly moves from being mobilized to being the mobilizer. What happened to those dust [...]

Transistor Radio

By | 2017-11-16T16:45:27+00:00 November 16th, 2017|Discipleship, Holistic Care, Worldview|

Zero In The Dial When was the last time you played with a transistor radio? God, to me, has been like an old school FM radio recently. I continually turn the knobs and dials, getting sporadic reception, while trying to find that station. When you really want to hear the music, your hand works with [...]

For The Love Of The Game

By | 2017-11-15T15:41:00+00:00 November 15th, 2017|Discipleship, Holistic Care, Worldview|

The Final Whistle... Last November, when the buzzer sounded as the clock hit zero, my thought as I walked off of the turf field was that soccer was over. This reality broke my heart. The sport that I played since I was a little girl all the way through college would no longer be a [...]

Slow Down, Be Thankful

By | 2017-11-14T13:51:14+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 [...]

“Son of Man, can these bones live?”

By | 2017-11-13T14:50:45+00:00 November 13th, 2017|Holistic Care|

A Valley of Dry Bones Often when I drive down the street, or walk through the neighborhoods, I feel as if I am in a live scene of "The Walking Dead." So many people are meandering through life in these empty shells called bodies, defeated and captive to the brokenness that surrounds them. I am reminded of Ezekiel [...]

Moments of Uncertainty

By | 2017-11-10T16:47:22+00:00 November 10th, 2017|Holistic Care|

Uncertainty... Maybe it is the discomfort of being a minority that encourages these moments where I am uncertain of what to do. What to say. Where to go. And, how to express myself. Maybe it is nothing more than a displacement of my heart from God and a part of His redeeming me to Himself. [...]

The Walk of Many Orevwa’s

By | 2017-11-09T18:28:26+00:00 November 9th, 2017|Compassion Corp, Worldview|

59. Friendships, experiences, tears, joy, fear, baptisms, growth, and finally, time. This figure symbolizes much to me. Could you guess it? This is the number of people that I have lived with since starting this life with Breathe. Other than my faithful friend Stephanie, who has more years here in Haiti than I do, this [...]
