I need a little Christmas, more than a little. In fact I feel that I’ve been operating on edge lately. Lots of stuff to blame…finances, relationships, politics, there seems to be no limit to the number of things that conspire to rob me of joy. Can you relate? I get so caught up in my […]Read More We All Need More Than “a little” Christmas
Christmas is for survivors. Yesterday, I was reflecting on the people I know who are in crisis. “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing consolation because they are no more.” While Rachel was weeping for her children, God was doing something beautiful for the babies […]Read More Merry Christmas!
We are Detroit-bound! We just got the word that we are approved for a place to live! After being State-side for one month, having gone on a vision trip for one week, we finally have secured a landing spot in Detroit. No, we won’t be in Hamtramck, not yet. We are going to settle in […]Read More Timeline
Hey all, Sam here! We are in Albany, preparing our move to the Detroit area, and I thought I’d post a little over the next few days about what we are doing, what we will be doing, and first, what we have done already. While looking to the future, and managing the present, putting some […]Read More Berlin
Earlier in the evening, I received a text confirming that a family we had been sharing the Gospel with had accepted Christ. I met this family along with the members of our last team. We had prayed for God to open a new door and had walked not even 10 feet in the refugee camp […]Read More #Revival
I could tell you about the huge meal we were served, all 18 of us. I could tell you about the fun the kids had or the laughter all of us adults shared. Or about the journey to get there, by train, by months and months of ministry, on the backs of team after team. […]Read More Two Men, the Last Tea, and Jesus.
From homeless shelters to well-funded technical training centers, from refugee-filled gymnasiums to shipping-container trailer-parks we have brought the Gospel to bear wherever we could. Now, as we position ourselves to follow God’s call to Detroit, as we lead our last team into ministry here in Berlin, “who will take over what you are doing when […]Read More Who Takes Over As We Take Off?
Today I led a team from YWAM Korea into a refugee camp for what I like to call “cultural exchange”. We have built up enough trust now to have blanket permission to enter this camp whenever we want with whomever we want so we go and just see who God brings us to on any […]Read More Refugee House visits

Jesus loves refugees. We don’t need to contextualize the Scriptures to see this. It is written in black and white, from beginning to end. And while He loves all refugees, He has something special for His elect refugees. K, a refugee, met Jesus when a short-term team came through. Hailing from a predominantly Muslim country, […]Read More Elect Refugees (Eklektois Parepidemois)
