I understand that what I’m about to talk about reaches across the political, religious and moral spectrum for many people. Know that I love each and every one of you who take the time to read my blog posts and that I am stepping into these waters with a healthy dose of humility. I ask for you to do so as well. Also, this post is going to be a bit long and we’re going to start out pretty heavy on the history before ending with a little light s»

A debriefing meeting after one of our training sessions. From June 13 to 23 I was in South Asia training national pastors in counseling. As I expected going into the trip, this was an experience from which I am sure I learned more than those whom I taught. It was my first experience working with first generation church planters in a region where Christians comprised less than 1% of the population. I was immediately struck by how committed they ar»

I’m home and happy to return to the joy and chaos of family. Stepping out of my role as Mom for nearly two weeks is a challenging feat yet I am always amazed how God equips and provides even when the days leading up to departure make me wonder what I am doing. Returning is never easy and neither is the question, “So what did you do in Ethiopia?” I warned my teammates that the question would come often and that there is generally little time»

In the “love chapter” of the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13 – Paul wrote, “Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.“ While everyone was talking about love, Rev and I are clinging to all three . . . faith and hope and love.  The phone rang Friday morning. Caller ID read, World Vision. A Child Sponsorship Representative on the other end of the line began: My name is Debbie, and I’m callin»

I am an eternal optimist. I look for the best in people. Always. My greatest bent in life is to look for the ways in which things and people, systems and structures may be restored. I just see hope and potential everywhere.  Brokenhearted people, antique furniture, neighborhoods crumbling under the foreclosure crisis, students who have fallen through the gaps in the education system. It is through these rose-tinted lenses that I encountered Gary»

This is how much God likes food, he mentions it before people. Yup, it’s right there in Genesis. He made all of the yummy vegetation days before people graced the scene. And I hadn’t noticed this before, food is mentioned not once, but twice before the fall. And it was good. God seems quite pleased with and focused on Adam and Eve knowing about and enjoying food. Like a good Jewish mom, God hovers over Adam and Eve saying, “eat, eat, I mad»

Can you guess our favorite catalog? It’s not for clothing, shoes, or bags . . . although those are fun. It’s not for furniture, accessories, or garden helps . . . although we like those, too. Our favorite catalog gives us joy not stuff. Our favorite catalog – The World Vision Gift Catalog. Why? Because the items in this catalog really change lives. Rev’s mom lived most of her life with very little. One Christmas all she could give her ch»

When Starla was at Young Jr. High School, she had a science project. The hypothesis was “Adding food dye to chicken feed causes hens to lay colored eggs.” Daddy built a chicken coop for the backyard on Decatur Street, and Starla set about dying chicken feed. Day after day, they laid the prettiest brown eggs, not like the white ones from the grocery store. Until the morning that it happened. Like a farm girl, Starla went out to gather eggs bef»

We are home and honestly as much as I love family time and vacation, being home feels good. I’ll share more about our time away soon but for now I have so much to share about Chapa. My One Child Campaign Partner and dear friend, Caleb David, visited Chapa with a team in July and I am grateful for the time he was able to spend listening and learning.
