Missions is a Two Way Street

We get a lot of teams and volunteers that come through in the course of a year.  We love them and are always excited to have them with us, but not just because they have come to help us.  If we’re being completely honest, teams and volunteers are a lot of work, and sometimes it…

Reminding Ourselves that IN ALL THINGS God has Purpose

And we know that in ALL THINGS God works for the good of those who love Him who have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28   Recently my wife wanted a tattoo on her shoulder with flowers and butterflies and the names of our children.  She wanted to do something to make herself…

Our Trip to Rabbit Island

In April of 2011, just before Cambodian New Year, Sinuon and I took a short trip to Kep.  A small town, on a rather unimpressive little beach, on the coast of the Gulf of Thailand.  Where small mountains come up against the sea and the water is warm.  We stayed there only 3 days but…

When a Lost Child Comes Home

For a long time I’ve read the Parable of the Lost Son and never fully grasped how deep it is.  But until recently I’d never lost someone I loved so much, watched them go away, wrestled with fear of never seeing them again, and then had the chance to celebrate in joy when they came…

Looking for Home

The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest. Isaiah 32:17-18 As I continue to go around the world looking for support to keep working with the street children God has put…

Little Bob

Seeking Unique Solutions

We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God. Romans 15:1 & 7   Once again I am way behind in getting out a newsletter and sharing with you all that has…

How I Handle It

I frequently get asked how I can cope with the things I see here in Cambodia.  I’ve had to deal with difficult situations when people are around and they seemingly marvel at how I just push through it.  People come and they see where the kids live and often they need to stop, they struggle…

Just Greg, Not Dad

There are a lot of people who frequently like to imply that somehow I am “Dad” to a lot of kids in Cambodia.  I feel like I need to dispel that, and this may rankle a few feathers in the process.   In Cambodia people don’t usually use the word “you” when talking to each…
