Praying for Ukraine

It’s hard to believe what we’re seeing right now. The country of Ukraine is being invaded and the citizens are in peril. Our mission agency, Missions Door, has several missionaries in the country, but you may not know that all of our missionaries are indigenous.

Infections

It’s a bit of a “rite of passage” to get stitches. I’ve had my fair share. I’m sure you have too. It is such an incredible thing to realize that our bodies have a built-in repair system. This is true on so many levels. Break a bone…it heals itself. Eat three-day-old potato salad…our body rejects…

Survival Skills

I’ve heard it several times that the strongest of our instincts is survival. I guess that makes sense. It’s kind of fun to browse Amazon looking at all the “survival books” are listed. “How to survive a global disaster.” “How to survive a biological disaster,” “How to survive a camping trip,” “How to survive a…
