In my last blog, I wrote about learning from Jesus how to slow down and see people, really see them, the way He does. “This moment is the most important moment. You (the person in front of me) are the most important person I can be talking to right now.” Being present in the moment, present to God, present to othe

Are You Too Busy To See?

May 10, 2019 By: Donnie Berry

I am in the middle of reading a book by Martin Luther King Jr. titled, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community? It was written 51 years ago in 1967, a year before Dr. King was assassinated. In it, he wrestles with and articulates a way forward for our nation: the black community and the white community. I find i

A story of what God is doing from our missionaries at Casa Adalia in Ecuador. Adalia in Hebrew means God is my refuge. Indeed He is.
