Delicious Waterfall

STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO: Picture Praise, 9/27/10

We live in a desert, hot, dry, and dusty. The people around us are in a spiritual desert as well, and have just come off a journey of fasting in search of God. On a recent break to another country we came across this delicious waterfall, a reminder that Jesus is the Living Water. He is refreshing, life-giving.

Children of the Needy

STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO: Picture Praise, 9/20/10

The story behind this photo was a medical visit to a very poor home. This little boy came and sat near us playing with his brother. His grandmother kept shooing him off her lap since she was busy talking with us about a problem her daughter had. He and his brother were enjoying sitting in the warmth of the sunshine in the window when I took this picture. The spring had been very cold and people were running out of fuel and food, so any warmth was thoroughly enjoyed.

photographer: anonymous, Afghanistan.

The God Who Sees Me

STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO: Picture Praise, 9/13/10
She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her:
"You are the God who sees me..."
~Genesis 16:13

We love sharing the story of Hagar with the women we serve for this very reason- He sees them and delights in them- even though their society tells them they should be ashamed of being seen!

Nearing Eternity

STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO: Picture Praise, 9/6/10

The lady in this photo was standing across a steeply-sloped street in a small mountain town in southern Ecuador, high in the Andes Mountains. We were there with a small medical team holding mobile clinics in more remote villages, as a means of sharing the gospel. Many receive medical care, but even more hear the gospel. Seeing this lady reminds me that Christ died for people of all ages, and some of these are nearing eternity. In this particular village there is sadly no church that preaches salvation by grace alone, which demonstrates the shortage of long-term missionaries in so many areas of the world.
