2020 Group 2 Day 6

Worshiping together with the other 63 or so men in the dining area at Faith Mission was particularly awesome.  There was nothing fancy about our worship team, although they are great!  It was just Cody on the Guitar and Doug leading vocally, but every time they were...

2020 Group 2 Day 5

Staying at Faith Mission in Del Rio is an experience in itself.  We have two sleeping porches filled with bunk beds for the 60 plus men to share for the night.  Normally I would have a hard time sleeping in these accommodations, but with the long days and short nights...

2020 Group 2 Day 4

Today was our day of worship and a bit more rest than a typical day.  We did start the day bright and early so we could do devotions and communion at Alianza with our gracious and friendly young interpreters. The name of God that David Burkett shared with us was...

2020 Group 2 Day 3

Today we started our day with breakfast at the hotel in McAllen.  I will say one of the great things about this hotel is they serve really good coffee.  I believe we left as Marty directed us at 7:00am… PRETTY-sharp for Hidalgo and Border Mission where we had...

2020 Group 2 Day 2

Devotions:  As usual, we started the day with a quick breakfast followed by devotions.  Worshiped the Father in song with “How Great is our God” and a couple other awesome songs.  David Burkett is our Devotions Pastor for the week.  The theme is going to be on the...

2020 Group 2 Day 1

Today seemed like a bit of a scramble at first, but Thank God we are all present and ready to serve and see what God has in store this week.  Power Ministries leadership has been busy today trying to work out alternate plans for the upcoming work days in the face of...

2020 Group 1 Day 6

Battles. That was the theme of this mornings devotion to kick off our final day of week one for Power 2020. El Shaddai represents God Almighty. This is our layer of protection when we go to battle. As we finish this trip, we are all reminded that we are going back...

2020 Group 1 Day 5

Jehovah Rafa, Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Shalom. Healer, Provider, and Peace giver. Those are the three forms of God that we can experience. This was the start of our day at Border Mission in Hidalgo, TX as delivered through Brian Parks devotion. We loved this message as...

2020 Group 1 Day 4

İTe doy Gloria, Gloria! That phrase has been hummed, sang, and yelled all day. It means “I give you glory, glory!”. Missionary Bruce introduced our Power team to this Mexican worship song this week, and it has been something I have weighed on all day as our team has...

2020 Group 1 Day 3

Greetings from the beautiful town of McAllen, TX! We just touched down to our final destination of the day at the Wyndham Garden Inn (its 11:00PM), and are still in one piece, as one team, serving one God. Today has been…logistical. Most of all of us had a good...

Good evening from Faith Mission International! I will get straight to the point and let all of you worry warts out there know that all 62 men are healthy, full bellied, and alive. Now to the good stuff… This morning started with a tasty breakfast, followed by some...

2019 Group 3 Day 5

Good morning! Last night we got ourselves in to Faith Mission at about 1:30am. But POWER leadership had a bit of mercy upon us and we were allowed to sleep in an extra 1/2 hour. At the Mission we sleep in bunk beds with about 30 guys to a room. It is a real snore...
