How Beautiful

How beautiful are the feet of them that bring good news. I was a summer missionary during my junior year of college in the Republic of Panama. Actually, I was in the Panama Canal Zone so I didn’t really suffer too much for Jesus. I worked for Panama Youth For Christ. My main job was to spend time with kids while the missionaries were on furlough. The experiences we had were amazing. I was able to catch a cargo ship out in the Pacific Ocean and transit the Panama Canal all the way to the … [Read more...]

Pressing On

I press on towards the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14 I will never forget when I first decided to hike on the Appalachian Trail.

I don’t know, maybe I like the challenge, but I go to where the last big wave hit and then start my castle. I build a huge wall in front to block the waves and then I build the rest of the castle. I always have to pay attention to the … [Read more...]

A Note From Greg

I think change is all a matter of perspective. How one person accepts and adapts is different from another. I think about weather and seasonal changes. They are going to happen no matter what. We didn’t really have well defined seasons in South Florida. Summer was a time of fun. We would go out in the boat or go swimming in the bay. The best thing about summer was three months without school!! Summer, as in most areas of the country was fun. One thing we did not do was camping in the summer … [Read more...]
