Dear Friends: This Sunday, June 9, we meet outside at 10:00 a.m. for worship under the oaks! What could be better than to worship in the beauty of God’s creation?

Dear Friends, I was talking with one of our baseball parents here at Liberty the other day. A baseball parent in my book is someone who o spends their time: driving back and forth to the field, lugging equipment, dragging other family members to the game, making portable meals, and spending hours on the sidelines […]

2018 Honduras Mission Trip – Day 5

Friends: Thursday, we partnered with a church in the town of San Isidro to offer a clinic to the community. Normally, this community is well cared for by a government-run health center, but with the retirement of its director and chief nurse in January, the clinic has closed because the agency responsible for appointing a […]

Friends: Wednesday, we returned to our partner community, El Olvido, to provide a clinic for the residents there. We were joined by Doña Gloria, a retired nurse from a nearby community.

In addition to seeing more than 130 residents, we also were able to train the local health committee in suturing wounds. The committee practiced by suturing the peel back on a banana. The banana is expected to make a […]
