  • Back home with internet!!!  Unfortunately, I was unable to send out blogs, etc. as I was planning to throughout the trip, due to spotty internet while in Spain.  So here it is:

    What started as a journey taking too long to get there, ended as a memorable trip that ended way too soon.  Some of you know of the struggles our team had traveling to Spain; the Nashville team members with the exception of 1, had to fly out a day later after discovering that their first flight was canceled. What you may not have known is that the Florida team members along with some of the World Harvest Mission staf...

  • Kurt–Hello everyone from Spain!!! We have had such a life changing event so far. The  team that you help send and the missionaries who spread Gods GRACE to the whole world have been changed for ever.The world will be a better place because of this trip. We received a standing ovation this morning from the group but it is we who should stand for them for all they do in the world. I could go on and on about how special this time is, but I won’t.

    I will say this: your gifts to us have made a huge difference in the lives of these missionaries and for World Music Mission in the future. We have ma...

  • Brian – As I reflect on my time here, I’m struck once again by the hearts of the missionaries I’ve met.  My conversations with them have been rich, and I’m humbled by their humility and strength.  The stories I’ve heard have been a mix of funny, inspiring, and at times, heart wrenching.  Some of the people I’ve spoken with live in very difficult circumstances, and even the ones who are stationed in more welcoming cultures have all kinds of challenges – from issues with finding enough financial support, to subtle (or not so subtle) obstructions that are put in their way to make their lives a...

  • As I continue to meet missionaries, I am awed by the difficult situations that they must endure.  One recent meal involved a conversation with a family dealing with many difficulties.   As the husband/father discussed the challenges to him and his family with the difficult cross-cultural situation, I was struck by how “normal” they seemed as they enjoyed their meal.   They could have been any family on vacation if I didn’t know the back story about the difficulties of their posting and family.   And yet, I saw them later that night during worship singing with their hands held high . . .

  • What a week, what a huge blessing! This week has been very powerful to me on multiple levels. I am so moved as a worship leader as I  humbly watch my efforts help facilitate a spirit movement in the missionaries that we are serving. They are extremely hungry for corporate worship and a chance to sing their heart music.  Songs that I might take for granted at home come alive here in a new way. It is very powerful to hear their voices raised in song and their hands raised in praise. I am blessed to have any part in this.

    I have also been very moved to see God move in our team. We are a group o...
