The Rule of Twos

Three years ago we made a concerted effort to travel from ID to MO abiding by the Rule of Twos: travel only 200 miles/day, travel every second day, stop every two hours, and be off the road by 2 PM. We’ve occasionally tried to do this on our travels since, but usually, we are just…

Releasing Creative Talents

“…The Lord has chosen Bezalel son of Uri …  He has filled him with the Spirit of God—…to design artistic designs…”  (Exodus 35:30–32) Comprehensive instructions for the Tabernacle and its contents were provided by the Lord.

Largest Group of SOWERs in 40 Years!

With over two hundred SOWERs at ALERT Academy in Big Sandy, TX, it was the largest gathering of SOWERs in our 40-year history! Although we’ve been a part of this organization for over 3 years, there were countless people we’d never met. For five days we met many of our fellow workers and it was…

Finished!

When we arrived at Calvary Commission on Feb. 4 our assignment was to paint the exterior of the Cedar Valley House. During rainy weather, we were to complete various projects inside.  The initial exterior inspection revealed some significant repairs needed before painting. The “rainy day projects” on the inside were not insignificant. February’s rainy weather…
