Bethany Hamilton on the Red Carpet

On the red carpet of the New York premiere of Soul Surfer, Bethany Hamilton answers my question: What do you hope our generation, who are facing trials, will take from this movie?

Soul Surfer

Facing the Unknown

What’s happening with the NFL lockout?   Is there going to be a NFL season next year?  Are you worried?

The Lord Is Not Done With Liberia

Here are my reflections from my last day in Liberia. Be sure to be apart of our Liberia Festival Webcast tonight at 7:30 and watch Liberia be restored with the HOPE of Jesus Christ.

I just want to say thank you to my AMAZING team. They are the ones who have made it possible for me to share the story of Liberia. Thanks to Joni Byker, Bev Kauffeldt, Hope Blaylock, Ryan Smith, and Matt Powell.

“Bringing That God Business”

Here is an inside look at my favorite village we were able to visit while in Liberia. This is a beautiful example of how the Lord has used Samaritan’s Purse to help transform the HEART of a village.

A Heart Washed With Guilt

I often forget what a life-changing experience it is to travel overseas for the first time. By the age of eighteen I had traveled the world and seen things people only dream of seeing during a life time.

Fishing Has Never Been So Muddy

While in Liberia, we got a little muddy. Well, we got really muddy! One of Samaritan’s Purse’s projects is the aquaculture project, and we got to help harvest the fish!

First Day in Liberia: Helicopter Video

Our first day in Liberia, we headed to Samaritan’s Purse’s northern base in Foya to visit a few of our projects. Here is a clip from the helicopter!

Together in Heaven, We Will Sing

On our last morning in Liberia, I thought back to all the wonderful people I had met, and I realized there was one thing each Samaritan’s Purse beneficiary had in common.  Each person I interviewed thanked the Lord God Almighty, first and foremost.

Liberia: Behind the Scenes

So, we are back home, which means back to reality. I think we are still recovering from the jet-lag a little bit. It is hard to believe our time in Liberia has come and gone so quickly. But I am so excited and looking forward to sharing the stories which impacted my heart.

Three Generations in Liberia

When I went to Liberia for the first time in 2007, I was not aware of my grandfather’s 1960 visit.  It was not until after I arrived, I heard from a few locals about his time there.  Many of them were very young when he was there, but they still had faint memories.
