The American political scene highlights a problem that we find in many Non-Profits and Ministries…focus and a strategy where all are on the same page.  The one constant in any situation is that there will be opinions and suggestions coming from all angles and it is up to the leadership to determine where to focus its resources and attention.  An organization cannot be distracted...

Brussels

March 22, 2016

That’s not the Brussels I know, not even close.  The Brussels I know is a beautiful land with amazing people who love life and their fellow man.  Unfortunately, a series of decisions have put this country at risk of extinction.  Good people, with good intentions, have become lax and allowed evil to penetrate their society.

The challenge of dealing with multiple cultures, political diatribe, and issues related to poverty presents situations that are rarely seen in the western world.  Why do you come?  What is your agenda? and What is in it for you? are questions that come forth regularly.  The truth is, we come for one reason and one reason only…Jesus.  Jesus told us to seek out the...

Over the last few weeks, we have seen numerous instances of tragedies related to weather, poverty, civil discord, etc. These are troubling for us all, but there is a constant thread that becomes very apparent to trained eyes that spend their time focusing on addressing the issues of those in need. The answer must have a long term focus, not a short term response....

Barbara Stark Baxter, MD made a call in 1983 to the Dallas County (TX) Medical Society (DCMS) to ask about physician volunteer opportunities in Dallas.  The director of DCMS had never had such an inquiry. He referred Dr. Baxter to Los Barrios Unidos, a clinic in the West Dallas Barrio. Unfortunately, administrators at the clinic feared that having a volunteer physician would jeopardize their...
