Drug users often describe the feeling they get from recreational drug use as a “rush”.  I had a rush this week when Karen forwarded me the note below. 

This Past Year

Submitted by Phil Rispin on Wed, 01/02/2019 - 21:10

2018 was a big year for us.  We can look back on about a half a year’s work full time on the AT Catalyst project.  It started with taking a big leap, leaving our jobs at LeTourneau and selling our house.

Thinking About Banquets at Christmas

For many of us, Christmas is a time of family and good food. There’s a story about a celebration meal in Luke 14. In verse 21 we read ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’ Until Karen began working with disabled children in Kenya, I hadn't given much thought as to how difficult it might be to do this.

One Bite at a Time

There is a saying that you may have heard, it goes “How do you eat an elephant?” The answer: “One bite at a time”. This helps to describe the huge need for safe and affordable healthcare that is absent for a very large proportion of the world’s population.

Living Light and Eating Humble Pie

This has been an interesting few weeks. 

I came home from Kenya to no home . . . or rather to realize that my home is where my hubby is.

We sold our house just before I left (praise God!), and the closing date was while I was gone. We were packing the house while I was packing for Kenya. Phil nobly finished packing and moving out with the help of the great people at our church.

Kijabe

I’m in Kenya right now.

I'm here with the LeTourneau University Wheels team,which I lead.  This time, there are five students and two other LeTourneau faculty members with me. Yesterday, I came up to Kijabe alone for two days to meet with the BethanyKids leadership. I’m feeling grateful, both to the two other faculty members taking leadership with the LeTourneau University Wheels team while I’m away, and grateful to the BethanyKids leadership for the invitation and the chance to facilitate their goals.  Its lovely to work with such great people.
