Why Walking Is Bad

By Laura on March 18, 2015

              Last week I spent 4 days at an orphanage. Night and day we ate, worked and slept in the building that is home to over 30 disabled children. I had a hard time sleeping at night; partly from my mind spinning from medical and therapy possibilities from the day past and for the day ahead, and partly from hearing crying children left unconsoled in their beds. This trip I was accompanied by a former GoCorps goer who is visiting my team to offer her expertise as an occupational therapist. She has been blessing the foster families and orphanages with her assessments and therapy... Read more

I was reminiscing about how good Christmas time is in the states, how me and my Dad always watch Charlie Brown Christmas together, and how there’s usually desserts out the wazoo (I searched, there is no direct translation of ‘wazoo’ into Arabic). My friend was... Read more

A Change of Mindset, and Heart

By Lindsay on September 29, 2017

     When I first started searching for cross-cultural ministry job opportunities after graduating from college, I developed a knack for quickly finding the alarming and unwelcome phrase, "support raising required." It was often casually tucked underneath an average-looking heading among all of the other nitty-gritty details of the job being listed. As soon as those words, or any other phrase resembling them, came into view on my computer scene, my cursor would slowly slink to the the little red exit button in the corner. "Nope! Not for me," I would declare to myself as I searched onwards... Read more
