Peace, Love, & Hummus
That’s the theme for this season of connection and travel as we are back in the U.S.! What does it mean? Great question!
It is our prayer that those we encounter will know PEACE with God by genuine LOVE demonstrated toward them through hospitality and proclamation over bowls of HUMMUS.
YOU have been a part of our journey as we’ve navigated our days in Sudan and Israel/Palestine. We want to say THANK YOU in person and share some of the amazing ways the Lord has demonstrated His love and power in our lives and the lives of others.
Want us to speak to your group? Meet up for lunch? Go snorkeling and share stories when we come up for air? We will do our best to try and make it happen. Send us an email, text, or FB message. Let’s do this!
We learn much from our desert friends and always from Jesus. We write about those lessons here.
Last time I left you, I had just had coffee with my new Cypriot neighbor, Oimbeeyatha (Oh-im-bee-YAH-thuh). Through the power of Google Translate, I received an invitation to return later in the week to meet her daughter who would be visiting from the city. I nodded...
The mountain village on Cyprus we currently call home is charming, welcoming, and interesting. For the few months we've been here, we've made it a practice to eat in different restaurants and visit the different business found here in this tourist destination. ...
Over New Year's, John and I watched a marathon of the show, "Alone." The producer distributes 10 people throughout Vancouver Island with the goal of surviving in the vast Canadian wilderness for as long as they can…alone. Get it? The last person remaining wins a large...
Living at Ground Zero
Desert paths are at times difficult to navigate. For one thing, they’re hard to see. For another, they can seemingly lead to no where and then WOW your long-awaited destination appears.
Our desert paths have led us to various countries and situations through the years, but always to beautiful people whose lives have enriched our own.
Now in one of those WOW moments, the path has led us to Ground Zero: Israel/Palestine. The place where Jesus walked, taught and demonstrated what it meant for “God to be with us.” This was the starting place, the ground zero, the origin of Christianity.
It also serves as our starting place for this season, a new desert path as it were. So we pray:
“May God our Father himself and our Master Jesus clear the road to you! And may the Master pour on the love so it fills your lives and splashes over on everyone around you, just as it does from us to you. May you be infused with strength and purity, filled with confidence in the presence of God our Father when our Master Jesus arrives with all his followers” (1 Thess. 3: 11-13, MSG).
