We got up early at 6am to prepare for a 6 hour train ride that would take us to the extreme western side of Georgia.  We traveled to the coast of the Black Sea to Georgia’s third largest city called Batumi.  The train ride was very nice, winding it’s way through the lo...

This morning we struggled to sleep.  We were so tired last night that we fell asleep around 6 pm.  We woke up ready to start the day at 10pm (this was not good).  Jose Luis and I spent from 10pm till around 1am praying for our families, Calvary, and the people we were...

We arrived in Tbilisi at around 4:30am this morning.  We were met by our host and we were blessed to get a little rest and refreshing before having our first meeting of this trip.  We traveled into old town Tbilisi to a quaint little coffee shop called “Culture & Coffe...

Proverbs 22:6

6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Never before has this simple proverb been more significant and more difficult.  Today's young Christians seem to be walking away from their faith in droves.  Years o...

 Deuteronomy 6:6-9

6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your...

28 “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? 29 For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you,30 saying, ‘This person...

This is a mature Dandelion. These simple weeds produce pretty little yellow flowers in my yard, and then after some time become these little fuzzy globes.  My daughters love them. They love to pick the flower and of course blow the little seeds into the air. I bet that...

"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people"

Mark 1:17

According the the gospel of Mark, this is the first thing Jesus said to his disciples.  We see in Mark that he first called Andrew and his brother Simon (we know as Peter), and just a...

Who are the 3 people who you are most invested/investing in?  If you’re married, one of these people is likely your spouse, and appropriately so.  If you have children it is also likely that you are investing yourself into your children.  Today, I am going to ask you,...

Family on Mission is a concept that is foundational to making disciple makers.  What does it mean?  How do we define family?  How do we then invite that family to join us on mission?  How does this concept inform the tools we employ and the metrics we use to gauge succ...

Ciertamente les aseguro que, si el grano de trigo no cae en tierra y muere,

se queda solo. Pero, si muere, produce mucho fruto.

Juan 12:24

Cada semilla de trigo puede crecer una planta de trigo. Cada planta puede producir hasta 8 cabezas de trigo. Cada cabeza contiene has...

Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies,

it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. 

John 12:24

Funny question: Have you ever seen a wheat plant?  Have you ever seen just one all alone in a field?  No of co...

The gospel of Mark says in it's first chapter in verse 15, "Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand!".  It marked the beginning of Jesus ministry.  He began going through the villages of Galilee making this proclamation!  This, before he called any of his disciples by...

If you are like me, last week's post hits pretty hard.  What do you do when you realize that what you are doing/have been doing, is so complex it is almost impossible to train others how to do it?  There are many responses.  Some may start by ignoring this realization...

In Matt 10 and Luke 10 we find powerful stories of Jesus engaging his followers with a specific task that has a multiplying effect of his ministry in many towns and villages of Israel.  We summarize this task and the instruction around it as the Person of Peace.  Somet...
