Short Term Missions Opportunities 2014

Short Term Missions Opportunities 2014
 We have several short-term missions trips opportunities this year: ANDROS YOUTH CAMPS: In August 2013, we did a youth camp for about 40 kids in Mastic Point (you can see pics on the website and blog). We had basketball, soccer, outdoor games and VBS. We’re hoping to do TWO youth camps this year, one in late June in Nicholls Town, and one in either late July or early August in Mastic Point. It’s a one-week trip and includes some fun stuff, too. Last ye

Talking About Hospice

Talking About Hospice
One of my favorite groups of people in the world are the staff at Hospice Jinja and Hospice Tororo. Hospice anywhere is a tough gig -- my mom always says anybody can do it, but I beg to disagree. Dealing with the dying, comforting them, encouraging their families... It's very challenging. But the people who do it are truly some amazing folks. Tonight I'm the keynote speaker at the annual fundraiser for Sovereign Wings of Hope in Houston, Texas. I ca...

Andros Youth Camp – Reflections

We spent the last afternoon at this beautiful beach, at the Andros Island Resort in Nicholls Town. The beer was cold, the ocean was crystal clear and cool, the weather was perfect, and the food was delicious. It was the perfect way to unwind after a week of much activity, much pouring out, much laughter and sweat and love. We talked, we walked, we sat, and, most importantly, we rested. So what are the take-aways from the trip? Well, I'm not one to write...

Making lots of progress!

Now that the Youth Camp is firmly in the hands of my program director, I turned my sites to the Uganda trip. I began to panic a little bit, because Zeke leaves on August 21, and that is really not that far away! I've made an appointment with the travel nurse for both of us to get our typhoid updated (every 2 years...yay) and get our malaria prescriptions. That's going to cost a pretty penny for Zeke's long trip, but it can't be helped. We've seen many peop...

What does “short term missions” mean to Ten Eighteen?

I guess because summer is upon us and a lot of people are going on short term missions trips, there have been a lot of articles and blogs around the web on what short terms missions are for. I wrote this article about a blog post that I strongly disagree with, and posted this link on the Ten Eighteen Facebook page to one I strong agree with. Ten Eighteen is about to take it's second group for a short term missions trip, so I thought I'd give an explanati...
