Loving Christ First

My girlfriend, Dana, was over with her daughter this weekend. It was the first time I saw Dana since we started dating, and the second time I saw her in person since knowing her for the past three or four years. She stayed with… Continue Reading “Loving Christ First”

Guatemala Day 4

I’m exhausted. But that’s how it’s supposed to be. I’ve learned so much about leadership in the past two day. We got to see a cemetary! It was beautiful but turned back early as there was a family there and wasn’t sure if they… Continue Reading “Guatemala Day 4”

Guatemala Day 3

Our team is amazing. The way they gell. The way they rock it. It is am amazing and blessed team. It’s been incredible and I am entirely humbled and uplifted. This is the house I helped build my first time out here.

Guatemala: Returning

I forgot a lot about Guatemala. It’s easy to recall the men armed with shotguns guarding gas stations and other high income buildings. It’s easy to remember the beauty of a city built around mountains and in tiers, with the horror of seeing entire… Continue Reading “Guatemala: Returning”

Guatemala Sept 21st, 2013

The country is beautiful. the city is beautiful. The morning started at 4:15am. After… Continue Reading “Guatemala Sept 21st, 2013”
