Disaster Relief Mission Trip – Groves, Texas

I’ve just returned this past Friday from a disaster relief mission trip to Groves, TX. The aftermath of Hurricane Harvey is still being dealt with by the residents of this small town just northeast of Port Arthur.There are many homes still needing assistance and a family attached to each one. We witnessed whole neighborhoods affected […]

What I’m Listening To

I find myself listening to a lot of older Memphis music lately. Well, one older CD and a new release of an old album. This album which came out in 1987 is a complete mix of Jimmy’s early days with the band Nexus, who were made to change their name by the haircare product company […]

Big Ben

Going back through some pictures from our first trip to England. This one of the Elizabeth tower that houses Big Ben was one of the first pictures we took that trip. I can only think of a few other landmarks that are quite as recognizable as this one. Stonehenge comes to mind, which we also […]

It’s the Mission Statement of the center. Here is the statement translated. Facilitating the integrated development […]
