We wanted to "adopt" another home for children with our ministry partners, Kids Alive International.

The St. Paul Link: November 6, 2014

:st-paulWith the first quarter in the books and two weeks of second quarter already finished, it’s time for our annual parent-teacher conferences. I’ve had the privilege to have been, at one time or other, on both sides of the conference table; as parent and as teacher. I’m not sure which place I prefer, but each certainly has its unique perspective on the student being discussed. What follows are some pointers that I’ve gleaned over the years as parent/teacher/ administrator that can contribute to a more profitable conference with your child’s teacher.

Calvary Link: Baby Jeffrey

Baby-JeffreyWhen my wife called from Guatemala last night, she was shedding tears of joy. She is serving alongside 21 women from our church at a home for 10 - 13 year old girls, who have been abused in unthinkable ways. Some of these girls are pregnant, and others have recently given birth. (I know it's unbelievable.) Stacy told me that it is quite an emotional experience watching young girls run in from the playground to nurse their babies and then skip back out to play with the other kids. Grief and hope are a potent combination.
