“There’s Never ‘Nothing’ to Do”

It's 7:30 am on day two of the new Egbe Hospital Dental Clinic.  The staff is here as well as the 10 returning patients we sent home yesterday because we were overbooked (how American).  The people are fierce about their place in queue; having to live with the incessant waiting being part of the culture [...]

Miracle in Egbe!

Volunteering in Egbe, Nigeria, with the Egbe Hospital Revitalization Project, I constantly received unexpected gifts which brought me a sense of joy. One such gift was participating in the Women’s Bible Study Group each weekday morning.  (The men had their own study.  I often heard the sounds of drumming coming from this group.)  This women’s [...]

Might sound like a great book idea, huh? However, there really is no book that can entirely prepare you for missions… However, you can do missions if you are a dummy!

She talked about the joy of serving God in this manner. I [...]
