too small a thing: Beauty and the Beast
Saturday, August 1, 2015. Beauty and the Beast. Ok, a bit of explanation. First of all, our guest and dear friend, Sabrina Knapp, recently starred in her high school’s production of “Beauty and the Beast” as Belle (we were privileged to see it via DVD copy and can now easily agree with every other review we’ve heard – she NAILED it! Here, in mostly pictorial form, are some highlights from “the Beast” with our very own “Beauty”. ENJOY! MONDAY, 27 July:. Building a fence with Pastor James. Pastor James sta...
too small a thing: on contemplating missionary service
Saturday, June 6, 2015. On contemplating missionary service. The decision to come and serve on the foreign mission field is a tough one, both for those considering a short-term opportunity or a long-term commitment. We often forget this, as God has grown in us a fondness and love for what we do. On one hand, it's never going to make any sense. It's not always easy, but it is rewarding. It's teaching, yes, but its so much more. It's service. It's sacrifice. It's flexibility. It's teaching ...If God lays o...
too small a thing: June 2014
Wednesday, June 4, 2014. The Parental Mirror (Part II). I seem to remember someone, somewhere writing something like parenting isn’t so much designed for our happiness as it is for our holiness. Or maybe that was marriage. Well, either way, I’ve noticed this trend MANY times over the past six and half years as a parent. Here are two things I’ve picked up just over the last weekend. 1 “He will not let you fall”. 8220;Why does it say, ‘He will not let you fall’? How do you answer the 5 year old (or the 20,...

too small a thing: Star Power
Wednesday, July 29, 2015. Back in May of this year (wow, we haven’t blogged in awhile! As the third term of our school year was just getting under way, Kijabe Hospital was gearing up for its centennial celebration, 100 years of God’s faithfulness in East Africa through medical missions. In honor of the event, Kenya’s president, Uhuru Kenyatta scheduled a visit to shake hands and tip his hat to the quality care Kijabe Hospital. Has provided all these years. 8220;Many, O LORD my God,. Were I to speak and t...
too small a thing: Good Friday?
Saturday, April 4, 2015. The Savior of the world tortured and hung on a cross to die, good? Followers deserting Him, God the Father forsaking Him, criminals dying on either side of Him, the Jewish leaders finally rid of Him, Satan smiling because of what he’s done to Him, a stone rolled in front of Him. Good? The Insanity of God. We are slowly walking through the reality of the deadliest terror attack on Kenyan soil since the U.S. Embassy bombings in 1998. What if I can’t depend on the (true or fal...
