Where is Your Sanctuary? Your Dwelling Place?

Fraterine before we met

I am grateful to several St. Philippians who have prayed for my little sparrow in Rwanda.

Since discovering God’s little sparrow last summer, we from the Dufat...

Honduras Boy Entranced Jesus Film

Let's take another walk down memory lane. This goes back to the early years of the medical ministry from St. Philip's Church to Honduras. Look at the face of this little boy. He looks as if he could be apprehensive or worried. ButI was there, and I know that actually he was entranced, very intent, and totally focused on something he was watching. I'd like to backtrack n...
