The Gesture that Did it

By Esther on January 24, 2017

“For an hour, everyone’s been talking words, words, words, but you showed me a gesture," began Angelino. With deepest sincerity, he continued, "That tells me God MUST be real and that you MUST have a personal relationship with Him.” Angelino was blown away and filled with such joy, by a gesture so simple as giving him a Bible in Pietro’s kitchen at 1:15 in the morning. See, Pietro (a friend from church, name changed) had been hosting a prayer meeting that evening. As we were finishing up around 12am, he noticed his friend Angelino walking outside. Calling out to him from over the balcony to... Read more

My Letter to Future Goers

By Alexander on December 19, 2017

Refugee is a commonly used word, recently, as we hear about the influx of people crossing borders for safety. And,... Read more

Walking & listening & loving & learning

By Marina on July 4, 2018

I met Martha on my 2nd evening on the Camino. I had heard about her earlier that day from Meghan, an engineer from South Africa who I ended up walking the later half of the day’s route with. She had asked me if I’d met Martha from Georgia yet, and explained that she was an older woman carrying her husbands ashes with her to Santiago. She ensured me that I would meet Martha soon because “Martha met everyone.” Meghan wasn’t wrong- that evening as I walked down my albergue’s staircase, I heard a woman at the front desk explaining (in English) to the owner of the establishment (who only spoke...
