“but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,“,  1 Corinthians 1:27. I love that the Kingdom of God is frequently called “the upside down Kingdom.”  Not because it has problems, but because it’s so opposite from the world system, the world that we currently live in.  In His Kingdom there is forgiveness instead of vengeance, unconditional love…

Good Friday & the Tree of Life

When I worked in South Africa for 3 years I liked how at Easter time when I would teach the kids at the feeding program and ask them which holiday we were getting ready to celebrate they would always reply with “Good Friday!” We put on a big conference every year at that time, it was always so powerful. People were saved, set free and touched by the Lord in wonderful ways. On the cross, on that Good Friday, Jesus…

Praise God!  After nearly 4 years of suffering regularly from the pain of fibroid cysts, our precious and beautiful Eva can finally face life without the worry of that pain, and without the need to take strong, expensive pain killers on a daily basis. As a Kenyan it’s not an easy task to raise the funds necessary for such a surgery.  But by the grace of God and generous people whose hearts He touched, money was made available for the…

A story of Eva ~ shining her light for the Kingdom in Kenya

Jesus said in Matthew 5 verse 14, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” If He lives inside of us then we have a heavenly light within that wants to shine. In the world in which we live there is darkness that threatens to overtake and sweep away the souls of people, into places and situations that are destructive and potentially eternally damning. In Daniel 12:3 an angel said to Daniel,…

What’s at your core?

The inner beliefs that shape our lives and how to transform the lies into truth.  Part 1 We all have a core set of beliefs that affect how we perceive the world around us and shape the decisions we make. Some of them are true and healthy while others are lies and destructive to our lives. The Centre for Clinical Interventions in Australia, http://www.cci.health.wa.gov.au/, describes core beliefs as, “the very essence of how we see ourselves, other people, the world,…

Transformed Lives in Africa (Image Carousel Post)

Kenya has been hard hit in the past few years by terrorists who have been trying to destroy the country and people’s faith through bomb blasts and shootings.  It can be easy to get discouraged as a result, especially in a land that was already weary from tribal wars, poverty, disease and droughts.  What a perfect time and place for God to pour at His love and power to display His immense love and care for the people there.  We…
