A glimpse into Internet ministry

It may seem strange or foreign to some that we get people with such personal and heartbreaking stories writing in to us from the websites. You may think that most of our work is with nameless, faceless “website visitors” who we never really have a chance to interact with.  In some situations, that is true. …

November Global Daily

Every month Central Heights Church asks the missionaries they support to submit an entry for the “Global Daily” monthly prayer newsletter.  The question this month comes from Psalm 68:19 which says, “Praise the Lord; praise God our Savior! For each day he carries us in his arms.” The question is How has God carried you lately?…

Car Situation Update

A quick update on the car situation. After much research, thought and prayer, we have traded in our 98 GMC Jimmy for a newer (and hopefully more reliable) 07 Jeep Patriot. We really weren’t excited about having to finance a vehicle again (the Jimmy was paid for) however we needed something sooner than later, and…

Global Daily – Jan. 2012

Every month, one of our supporting churches asks us to write in response to a question so that the congregation can get to know us better and pray for us more specifically.  This is our entry for January, 2012. Question: Tell us something from your childhood or early adult years which God has used to…

Global Daily for CHC

Every month, I’m asked to write an entry for the Global Daily for Central Heights Church.  This is my entry from October (published November).  We are asked to respond to specific questions, and the one for this month was “Tell us about a Scripture book or passage that is especially meaningful to you.” I (James)…
