Become Like Children

I have a confession to make. There wasn’t a carrot in existence that could have lured me into Vacation Bible School after the age of seven. One bad experience proved to be all it took to sour me on the idea, and that experience took place during recreation time. I can still picture my teacher […]

Special People, Special Week

Although they did attempt to rally later in the battle, they were no match for Ferdinand’s troops. When all was said and done, the Protestants lost 4,000 men; Ferdinand only lost 700.

Monday morning provided an opportunity for the women on our team to interact with mothers from the community in a ministry called “Bumps & Bundles.” Melissa Hunt designed this ministry as an outreach to women who aren’t necessarily connected with a church. We met at a local park and spent several hours conversing with the […]
