Jeff Thomas – The Wandering Path

“These are people who are way in the back. These are people who might feel lost. I think with us going as a group to [follow the path to] find them and pray over them, they then feel as though they’re found and as if somebody does care even though they’re way back there.

People of the Empty Tomb

All seemed lost on Tuesday, September 30, 2014…I knew the chaos I was walking into when I boarded the plane to Haiti. I also knew we were an empty tomb people, carrying the hope of Jesus Christ and no matter what happened, He was more powerful than anything we faced and His will would be done.

Mark Meyering – Ambassador Log: Part 2

Nathan accidentally steps on one tomato and crushes it.. he turns in horror to Craig and looks like he just killed a child… “I stepped on her tomato!” Craig, the seasoned veteran responds, “Yep, there’s a lot of tomatoes here”.. the vendor is mildly annoyed but has seen this before and makes no protest.
