Our Jericho

By: Julie Nash


Mentally disabled elderly members of any society should be given the right to live in peace and comfort. So often though, they are forgotten, overlooked, even resented.

His Banner

Is it Worth it?

By: Julie Nash


God isn’t looking for people of great faith, but for individuals ready to follow Him” – Hudson Taylor

So many times I have been asked the question, “Is a short term trip worth the expense?” or “Will I really be making an impact on others?”

Backyard Missions

By: Lauren Caudill


I still cannot believe that it has been more than 2 years since I moved to Guatemala. It is strange to feel more at home here than back in Virginia. My heart will forever be in two places at once. The children and families here at the Village of Transformation have become my […]
