God, Are You Kidding Me?

The mission trip to Ecuador was only seven days, but it was non-stop. We had to leave at 3:00 a.m. to get to the airport for the flight home so I must admit; I was looking forward to a peaceful sleep from Quito to Dallas. While going through customs, I said my usual...

Take Advantage of the Opportunities God Gives You

The focus of our trip to Ecuador was to share the Gospel. The team of twenty-one people spent five days maximizing their time in serving the Lord. From street evangelism, medical clinics, one-on-one evangelism, ministering to basic needs and leading worship services,...

God’s Favor

A Good Day to Catch a Cab!

It was one of those days you could feel God was up to something great. I was on my way to speak at Leadership Conference in Ecuador with a friend and an interpreter. As soon as we sat down in our cab, I noticed a cross hanging from the rearview mirror. Our driver’s...

Sierra Leone

Earlier this year Dr. Michael Walker again joined the Mercy Ship to serve and minister to the lost and hurting in Seirra Leone. During his 2-week mission, Dr. Walker extracted over 1000 teeth and performed many surgeries on patients who were “far beyond my ability to...

Wales
