I’m a Mess, But He is Enough.

I’m sitting here in Florida at our Winter staff meetings with PPM. Our Belize Country Coordinator told a story of a friend who was giving a devotional at a men’s meeting and ended up simply saying these three words: “I’m a mess.” And then he listed things he was thankful for. I immediately found myself […]

Liar Liar: How does Culture Shock end?

“What’s it like to come out on the other end of culture shock? (Does it ever end?)” Culture shock is different for each person. But what is it like coming out of the other end? What an excellent question. Culture shock is a natural response of any human after spending an extended period of time […]

Liar Liar: What is Culture Shock Like?

Maybe you’ve been on a mission trip, studied abroad, been an au-pair in France. Or maybe you’ve never left the comfort of your birth-state, I’m not sure. Either way, if you’ve ever spent time in a foreign culture, you’ve probably noticed transitioning back and forth can be difficult. One thing people ask us very often […]

Guest Post: Hi, My Name Is Jason.

Jason is one of those kind of guys who my old youth pastor would describe as “solid” – an all around good man, compassionate, joyful and firm on a foundation of Christ and who He is. He’s been with joining with PPM since 2011, taking trips to Haiti each year. The relationships he and his […]

I am Flawed, but He is Enough.

Friends, Can we be fully transparent today? Do you ever have those days where it feels like you’re doing everything wrong? That somehow you’ve managed to seemingly ruin everything you touch? Well, that’s how I feel today. From shrinking a load of brand-new dresses in the wash, to breaking a dish in the sink, burning […]

5 Minutes of My Day: Was She an Angel?

I’ve been sitting here in this hospital for 3 hours, waiting to see a nurse or doctor with this sick baby in my arms. I’m keeping him as comfortable as possible, but I’m not going to lie, I’m nervous. His heart rate is too high. His temperature is scorching hot. He’s sleeping like a rock […]

Liar Liar: Summer Highlight?

It’s not hard for me to know where my summer highlight happened. Almost my entire summer was spent in the community of Bon Repos, Haiti. A small country-like community north of Port-au-Prince. A community where cows are the traffic in the road, water is on your south-west and the hillsides begin slowly rolling into tall […]

Liar, Liar: How Was Your Summer? (Part 1)

Most of you are probably aware that Bethany and I are now home from spending the summer in Haiti. Now that we are home, everywhere we go people are always asking us about how our summer went. To be honest, that’s a really hard question to answer! When spending so much time working with mission […]

5 Minutes of My Day: The Red Man

I always see him as I head into town. The team is hungry for lunch and I’m so busy, rushing around. He’s always on the side of the road just up ahead. Today he is dancing wildly with his back to the highway. His shirt is dark red and filthy. He must be middle aged, […]

Guest Post: Hi, my name is Casey.

As typical with our job, we get the awesome opportunity to lead all kinds of mission teams from North America. My first team of the summer season was a group of Engineers from Engineering Ministries International, Canada. The group consisted of 11 members one of whom I feel like could be my long lost sister. […]

5 Minutes of My Day: Driving Along

The keys jangle and smack against the flat of my palm. Eric tosses them to me and says, “Giddy up babe. Time to pull up our boot straps and get to truckin’.” He loves to drive me nuts talking in southern expressions. It’s 4:00 am and I’m exhausted, no way I’m getting behind the wheel […]

It’s The Little Things

It’s the little things that mean the most sometimes. It’s the eyes of a community child searching your face for approval after washing the car for you. It’s the silly faces made by a construction worker with the orphanage children. It’s the song of our Haitian staff leading the group in worship. It’s the young […]
