Termite Technology

During two lovely days of this trip to Ethiopia, I’ve had the blessing of visiting very poor women who’ve received two or three goats from Heaven’s Family. The goats—always at least one male and one female—are absolutely free, but there’s a catch. The women have to agree to pay us back in kids.

The Queen’s Camels

This afternoon I had the bittersweet blessing of dedicating a new water well funded by Heaven’s Family’s Safe Water Ministry. It was sweet because the beneficiaries, tribespeople from miles around, have been drinking unsafe, muddy water all their lies. Now, for the first time, they will have pure, safe water to drink. They will no longer be plagued by waterborne diseases.

The Holy Spirit’s First Name

Ethiopia runs on a biblical clock, starting with the sun's consistent rising around 6am (we're near the equator), which is considered the start of "the first hour of the day." Today (Sunday), church began at 10:00 on my watch, but at 4:00 Ethiopian time.

Special Report: Infiltrating North Korea

It’s happening yet again. North Korea’s despotic leader, Kim Jong Un, is breathing threats of annihilation against South Korea and the United States. The media loves reporting this all-too-usual story to audiences anxiously concerned about the risks of nuclear confrontation, because fear generates good ratings, and good ratings generate advertising dollars.

A Chance to Catch a Rising Star

In the world of humanitarian aid, sadly, the dignity and incentive of those who need our help is often inadvertently crushed, while irresponsibility, dependency and corruption are bred. Over the years, we’ve learned it is never wise to do for others what they can do for themselves.

Mobilizing Missionaries

Walking can only get you so far so fast. In many places around the world, missionaries are doing their best to reach distant villages and communities with the gospel by walking, riding worn-out bikes, or hiring costly taxis.

Kangure’s Water

On our final day in Africa, Diane Scott and I traveled by car for a little over an hour outside of Nairobi to the village of Kangure. There, one of our Kenyan micro-bankers, a church-planter named David Gaita, has planted one of his churches. It is named, Emmanuel Joy Glorious Fellowship Church, and when we arrived, some of the saints were waiting for us.

Rescued Nuer and Dinka Beauties

Because I've been traveling in East Africa with Becky (my wife), Diane Scott, and Mel Miller, we've been focusing on projects related to our Safe Water Ministry, Food Ministry (both directed by Diane) and our Refugee Ministry (directed by Becky, and before too long to be directed by Mel). So, today we spent some hours at Cindi's Hope, a Christian boarding school in Naivasha, Kenya, whose 89 special students all have heart-breaking stories to tell.

Education is Everything

Most Kenyan parents know that the only hope that their children have of escaping poverty is through an education. So parents who live in Nairobi's most squalid slums—that are unimaginable by Western standards—go to work every day on the outside, working at the lowest-paying jobs in order to earn enough for their children to attend school.
