Celebrating 6 Impossible Things Before Breakfast in 2017 …

“Alice laughed: ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said; ‘one can’t believe impossible things.’ ‘I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. ‘When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'”  Alice in Wonderland. Alice in Wonderland is a […]

Our Map of the World

At first glance of the below map, you might think, “I’ve seen this before.” And you’d be right; we have used a version of this map before—illustrating all the places where MWP works or has branches. THIS MAP of our WORLD, however, shows not only WHERE we work but also WHO’S equipping the work through prayer and finances—that’d be YOU! All the red markers represent home-sites for MWP; […]

How Natural Lifemanship Prevented a 12-Car Pile Up

A 13 Year Old with a Story to Be Told

When I first began writing Passport through Darkness I remember listening to a publisher discourse on how he might market such a book. He said, “Certainly, we couldn’t class it as a memoir because you’re too young to write a marketable memoir.” My Appalachian father would have vehemently argued that case with him, as most of […]

Filling Dangerous Holes with Love

St John of the Cross wrote, “Love is the measure by which we will be judged; where there is no love, PUT love.” Recently, as I lay in ICU riddled with pain and a difficult medical choice to make, the thought ran through my mind, “This is not a good day.” I willed myself to […]

Death Mocking at Our Door

The news of death mocking at our door found me as I traveled some thousand miles from home last week. It has taken me the whole of the week—listening to the pounding of its disjointed rhythm—before I could cull out its message. Somewhere between 1 and 2 am Lual Atak called me, broken.
