Happy New Year!  What an amazing year this granny has had! To keep going without Les has been a sobering challenge for me, but as invitations began to come my way, I found myself packing my suitcase and heading out on my own to be part of missions conferences, Vacation Bible Schools, or Women’s Retreats… Read More»

I am an amateur movie buff. I enjoy the entire process of filming, editing, and producing short films. My primary subject, of course, is my family, and I have hour after hour of footage just to prove it. Chances are good that if you come over to my house, you will be forced to sit… Read More»

Just last week, I had the joy of traveling to Cuba to meet with dozens of our Five Dollar National Missionaries. As a reminder, LOGOI’s $5 national missionaries are “tent makers” making their own living somehow. We don’t take them out of their culture or pay for any of their living expenses.

I remember how fun it was to meet a former Olympian and National Greco-Roman Wrestling Champion.  Especially since he was a student in our FLET Bible School and he was standing in the church auditorium my grandfather built in Cuba. His name is Angel and he is over 6’ tall and burly.  His years as… Read More»

Remember those good old days when the entire church got excited about your annual mission conference?  You have to “remember,” because for most, it’s been years since our mission conference was anything but exciting. I distinctly remember two young families happily walking into my church only to discover it was “Mission Sunday.”  I saw their… Read More»
