STEREOTYPES BROKEN


7/19/2014 by Steve Kinsel

Friday was our last day on the work sites- so today was like cramming for finals......you realize the end is near so you "hyper-focus" to finish the job before leaving.  Every team strapped on their "big boy boots" today and worked so diligently to push towards the end.

The progress was so cool to see from Monday until ...

2 Updates in ONE Day??


7/18/2014 by Steve Kinsel

I have decided that you are just going to need to come to our missions report night on 7/30 to hear the stories because there is so much I could try to write here it would take forever.  The end, good night. (Haha).

No no, I won't tease you that much, but I am serious that it would take forever to write about everything that happened. &...

How is it Thurs. morning already?


7/17/2014 by Steve Kinsel

This trip seems to be flying by (which is a good thing b/c it sure beats the other way when you're thinking, "it's ONLY Thurs"....

It was supposed to rain most of the day yesterday (Wednesday) which would have impacted several of our sites (esp. at one of the sites which was pouring concrete in the AM).  While it was cloudy ...

WOW!!! (yes, it's as simple as that).....


7/16/2014 by Steve Kinsel

Where do I begin about Tuesday.  There is so much I could write about, but there is NO way to explain everything that happened.  You will just have to come to our missions report night (July 30th by the way- shameless plug Lol) to hear more about it.  But first off, the weather continues to be amazing. 

Today there were a lot ...

A tale of 2 reservations


7/14/2014 by Steve Kinsel

For those following this, you know we had a LONGGGGG day yesterday, arriving late last night.

Today we headed out to our work-sites to see what we would be working on all week.  First off, this trip is about as different as you can get from last year.  Last year in the Rockaway's was fairly urban, this year we're about as rural ...

Over the river and through the woods!


7/14/2014 by Steve Kinsel

Minus the river and woods lol.  Well it was a bit of an adventure but we finally made it to Pine Ridge. Been a busy night so it's my first chance to post. No major problems- just took a while getting all the rental vans settled and then it's simply a long drive to the reservation.  We finally made it in about 10 pm mountain time (...

HERE I AM LORD, SEND ME!!


7/11/2014 by Steve Kinsel

Hey everyone,

I figured we’d get this blog thing going a little before the trip.  I hope you're amp’ed up for this trip and experience, and that you’re praying for an open heart to what God has in store for you/us this week, as well as the hearts of our residents.  Let’s remember to keep/put our focus on the ...

Take Some Pictures


7/6/2014 by Ed Kirkland

For years, Donna encouraged me to find a hobby.  I approached that challenge like most other things.  I worked at it.  I considered various things and tried a number but always ended up frustrated, bored, or just not all that interested.  Time after time I found myself wondering if anything would ever fit.
 
Then, we went ...

Continue to include us in your prayers in the coming days and all throughout the mission trip for the covering of each ...

Father's Day 2014


6/15/2014 by Ed Kirkland

Hopefully, everyone knows today was Father’s Day.  If not, then you must still be asleep!  On days like this, Donna and I really miss being with our children.  We recognize that we are not the only ones.  I spoke with several people today that told me their children live far away as well.
 
In spite of the distance ...

Life in New York


6/8/2014 by Ed Kirkland

Last Friday evening our elders and wives got together to thank those rotating off the Board and welcome those coming on for the coming church year.  Here at Living Faith, all our non-vocational elders are elected to serve three-year terms.  After three years, they are required to step down for at least one year before they can be asked to...

Join us this Sunday


5/30/2014 by Ed Kirkland

Just a quick word to remind everyone I will continue the series on "The Right Decision" this Sunday.  We have 3 of the 7 steps left to talk about.  This week we are going to learn how and why faith is always part of following God.  I hope you will be with us at one of our three services.  Also, we celebrate communion ...

Castle in the Hamptons


5/18/2014 by Ed Kirkland

When I got home today after the third service I turned on the television and caught the middle of a show called, “Epic Homes” as I was eating lunch.  The home they were featuring was very “unique” in the Hamptons.  The owner decided that he wanted to build a castle.  The only problem was he wanted to build an ...

Happy Mother's Day!


5/11/2014 by Ed Kirkland

Well another Mother’s Day has come and gone.  At least it is almost gone because as I write this it is about 9:30pm Sunday night.  This year, we decided to make a change in the way we recognized moms in our services.  Our staff became aware that while having the moms stand was a way of honoring them, it had the opposite effect ...
