Darin and Tonya Kucey are missionaries serving in Haiti. Tonya recently wrote about how the January 2010 earthquake that devasted parts of the country is still felt in the lives of the survivors.It is very difficult to describe what is it like to hear the Haitians tell their stories of the January 12th, 2010 earthquake that took 300,000 in a matter of seconds.I can’t even imagine what it would...

In the community of Haina, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, most cohabiting adult couples are not married. Many have been together for years and have children.

“This has been one of the best gifts ever given to me. Through Rendezvous Plus, God refreshed and encouraged me in the middle of one of the hardest years of my life,” wrote Joy Fosnaugh, a Nazarene missionary kid fresh out of Rendezvous Plus, an intense re-entry training that was held at the Nazarene Golden Bell campground in Colorado earlier this month. Rendezvous Plus is part of a new...
