Famine in Kenya’s Samburu territory has been going on for nearly a year. No rain. People witness their livestock perishing directly in front of them. The cows slurp up mud from a few puddles here and there when they can be found just for the moisture. People walk

Of the millions of Hebrew people, only Achan was disobedient. This principle is the same with us. What appears as one tiny, seemingly insignificant sin pollutes our entire beings.

Working a full-time job, commuting every weekend from where I lived, taking care of grocery shopping, doctor’s appointments, etc., I was getting physically, mentally, and spiritually weary.

As a child, I dreamed of going to Africa as a missionary — never anywhere else — not Australia, Argentina, or Austria, always Africa. While God had given me a love for Africa, at that age I did not realize that it was His calling, His plan for me.

With no income, occasionally I did not even have a dollar to buy food to prepare the soup. However, God provided because this was His calling. He also knew before He called me that I would be short of funds and that preparing food would not be an option. He took care of everything. One weekend, the church had…

When I learned of her death, I prayed for her husband. She hadn’t spoken of their financial need of late, but I also sensed that there was a huge monetary obligation with medical expenses because of her stroke and the funeral. Just a few hours later I was going through some things when I opened an envelope from my bank. Inside was a crisp...
