What Our Work on the Mission Field Taught Me

When we first arrived in Haiti as missionaries, it was extremely difficult and pretty scary…the embargo against Haiti had been lifted and their president was reinstated by the US military…Should we even be bringing our 7 and 9 year old children into a situation like this? Had God really called us to this work?

Using Cross-Reference to Study Your Bible (Devotional Times Series)

One of the first tools I remember using and still use to study the Bible is the cross-reference, sometimes called the chain reference. These are the tiny little letters  that you see in the verses you are reading (this is where a magnifying glass can come in handy) that lead you to a key either in the center or the outside margin of your Bible.

Great is thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father. 
There is no shadow of turning with Thee. 
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not. 
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be. 

This has always been my favorite hymn. When I was younger, I loved the message of God’s faithfulness in our lives (and I really liked that I could sing the beautiful harmony without looking at the notes). Through the years as I have repeatedly experienced God’s faithfulness, the words have grown even dearer. “Morning by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed Thy hand hath provided. Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me.”
