How I'm organizing my life this spring
This summer I began using Action Method paper products from Behance to organize my life. I have used the Action Cahiers and Action Pads with great success. Writing things down really helps me to stay on top of various tasks and the clean design of Action Method paper products helps un-clutter my life. For those wanting more a digital feel, they also offer a great App for Web/iOS/Android that...

Dear American christians
As is well known, my Spanish is basic at best. Because of this, I tend to read my bible during lessons at church because I find that a more constructive use of my brain than merely allowing it to wander hither and thither. This morning I opened my bible and began reading from the book of Haggai. I was struck by how similar I feel like our mindset is with that of the Israelite people at the time...

"In God's Mercy"
I feel bad, but people in mission groups give me a lot to write about. When I asked a lady in the group how the border crossing went she replied that it went quickly because they were in “God’s mercy”. Although that may be true, are we not always in God’s mercy? Are we not also in God’s mercy if the border crossing takes four hours instead of 45 minutes as it did in...
Just rode a horse wicked fast like the man from snowy river.
Culture is so incredible. It is by far one of the easiest things to become frustrated with when it differs from your own, but it can also produce some of the most rewarding experiences. I have gotten to spend quite a bit of time with one of the employees here at ML named Sammy Montoya. Sammy has been one of my rewarding culture experiences. He speaks a little English and I speak a little Spanish....
What works. What doesn't. - Gear Review
Mountain Khaki and Columbia currently rank one and two as my favorite brands of pants. Currently, my Columbia Roc pants are starting to pull a seam and have been for some time, but they still seem to be holding up despite how active I have been. Mountain Khaki uses really durable material combined with triple stitched seams. They aren’t as cheap as other brands, but they hold up really well...
TIH (This is Honduras)
I rarely, if ever, work on what I was planning to on any given day. For example yesterday the plan was for me to continue taking inventory of the red beans in the silos. That, was not to be. Turns out the keys had gone home in someone’s pocket and were nowhere near the office. I won’t say that I’m used to this, but I am growing to accept it or change it when i can. I do...
Spanish blunders part 3
Recently I thought I had been telling people to have a good day. Turns out I’d been telling them that I’m having a good day.
Having a great chat about God with the guys around the fire pit we built.
Up early to head to Los Pitas with Javier the preacher. This should prove to be a great day.
Currently, I’m sitting in one of the nicest and most crowded Pizza Huts I have ever been to in my life. Evidently, Pizza Hut is a fancy restaurant and a very popular place in Choluteca, Honduras. After lifting around 1,000 Lbs of red beans this morning into a silo, I headed out with Seth and Miguel to Los Colorados to document the work being done by the group from Lebanon, TN. (See photos...
