.Henok {Repost}.

His shivers racked his rail thin body, his teeth violently chattering against one another, causing his head to pound and his jaw to ache. Henok curled his small body tighter to the body of his best friend, Abal, who slept closest to him, feeling the trembling from his friend’s body as well. He pulled at […]

.Breathe In, Breathe Out.

I sat down at a local Starbucks and looked up, the scene was so different from where I had found myself for the past 8 months. I had to make an emergency trip to America and found some time between it all to sneak in some meetings with my Pastor. I had seen him the […]

.Why We Do It.

Each day we wake here in Ethiopia, we strive to make progress in our efforts to get legal status so we may formally begin our work. It is not a small task, and it is not for the faint of heart. There is rejection at every corner. This is compounded by a few sad realities. […]

.My Thoughts on the Church [Does She Care?].

I have been thinking so much lately about who we are… us. You and me. Together, I think we are making a difference in the world—I really do. I have seen so many both on my side of the world and yours decrying God’s people on the North American continent. Sentiments like, “Wake up American […]

.Purse Strings and Heartstrings.

Jesus had this incredible way of cutting straight to the point. He would say just a few words, maybe a little story, and cut straight through our excuses, and philosophies, our distractions, and get right to the point He was striving to make. It is a quality I am fascinated by. In Matthew 6, Jesus […]

.Meet Bethany.

Allow me to introduce you to one of our board members. It is fitting that she is the first board member I introduce to you, as she was the first person I called when we began the process of founding Mercy Branch. I tell Bethany that she is my first adopted daughter. Although that is […]
