Returning to the “Developed” World: A Reflection on Hope and Sparrows

Returning to the “Developed” World: A Reflection on Hope and Sparrows

A series of twists and turns have landed me back in the States a little earlier than I anticipated, and after six years of life in East Africa. The beginning of this seventh year is for me a sabbatical of sorts. It’s a time to reconnect and re-engage with friends, family, and supporters in the […]

Free Speech, Persecution, Holidays, and Beatitudes

Free Speech, Persecution, Holidays, and Beatitudes

Prayer is the Work

Prayer is the Work

“Prayer is the work.” Stop and re-read the previous sentence, slowly. My internship had just been turned upside down.
