The Global Health Crisis: Why You Should Care & Read This

Today there was a talk given by Dr. Tadataka Yamada, president, of the Global Health Program of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Teaching: Not Just a Job, But a Call to be Christ-like

When I think about the sphere of education, I often think about how it can be used to reach the people in need with the Gospel. In the past two years of teaching, I've experienced the difficulty in reaching a group of students and staff with the Gospel. Being in a public school limits me from being able to say certain things I want to say and teach certain things I want to teach.

We Will Fail*


* - “For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” (Acts 5:38-39).

The Church and the Fight Against Injustice

“He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker” (Proverbs 14:31).

Dental Outreach Recap

Dental students from HMCC’s Medical Outreach Ministry hosted an educational session at Hikone Community Center on Tuesday October 9, 2007. Eighteen children (ages 3 to 14 years old) and three resident staff members attended this interactive teaching session on basic oral care. We spent time explaining and demonstrating proper brushing technique and emphasized the importance of flossing daily.

Healing People Through Song

I sang "Amazing Grace" at my Grandmother's funeral. I remember singing that line "I once was lost, but now am found" when the people in the audience simultaneously said "amen." But the way they said "amen" was so genuine and sincere that it was as if the words pressed upon their hearts. Afterwards, a pastor approached my parents and said that he's heard many powerful, soulful gospel singers, but there was something…something about me. At the time, I simply thought he was someone who appreciated my singing.

Marriage: A New Set of Blueprints

I hear that all families are dysfunctional in one way or another, and my family growing up was no exception. I wouldn't say my childhood was an altogether unhappy one, but it did have it's share of frightening and lonely moments. The constant verbal and physical fights between my parents had a negative impact on how I viewed marriages. As with most girls, I did think about boys and marriage, but those thoughts would be overshadowed by my parents troubled marriage.

Reaching the Nations through Education!

Not everyone enters college with knowing exactly what God wants them to do. At least that was my case in 1999 when I came to the University of Michigan as a freshman. Though I was lost in life direction, God found me after a month into school by transforming me from my nominal Christian identity to a born-again Christian with a clear purpose and hope to live for His glory. As I got more serious about my relationship with Christ, I started praying about God’s calling in my life. During this time, God had also been burdening my heart for missions.
