A Student’s Perspective

Hearing the news about how our school was taking action against COVID-19 was devastating for many. Graduating seniors had to say early goodbyes to many friends they may never see again. Professors had to rush to make their classes available online. Resident students had to scurry to pack everything and figure out how to get…

Simply Faithful

Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of…

Some Encouragement During this Difficult Time

My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name. On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand, All other ground is sinking sand. When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging…

Don’t Draw Back

A life of faith is true dependence on the Lord that results in obedience. In the early years of our ministry, a lady commented to me what a privilege it was for us to live by faith since most children don’t have to depend on the Lord for what they will eat the next day.At…

Are We There Yet?

Have you ever planned a family vacation? After days of preparation, the suitcases are packed, the house is locked up, and snacks, luggage, pets, and children are dutifully loaded into the car. You’re breathing a huge sigh of relief as you finally pull out of the driveway when a small voice drifts from the back…

On April 26, 2019, around 6:30 in the morning, I suffered my first seizure. It occurred while I was sleeping so fortunately, I do not remember it. This seizure caused me to fall out of my bunk at college which was about five feet off the ground. I fell directly on my head and continued…

Dreaming

When I was a child, I had big dreams—starting with first grade when I wrote that I was going to be a missionary and look like Princess Diana when I grew up. Of course, as I got older those dreams changed; because of my many interests as well as my admiration for my mother, I…

Miracle Money

We are walking into George Müller territory. Recently, I heard a Bible teacher (via DVD) lament that his children may miss out on critical lessons on faith, because God had given them so many physical comforts. We pray that our children would also understand living faith in our living God. Unlike George Müller and his…

Faith of the Gentiles

   And the morrow after they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen and near friends. And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him. But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man….
