She is one-year old now

January 10, 2016 |0 Comments

Recently, my family and I were out to dinner. As the hostess escorted us to our table, I noticed that one of the wait staff looked familiar. My husband, my sixteen-year old daughter, and I were seated. We were looking over the menus and chatting, when that familiar young woman approached me and asked if I practiced OB/Gyn. I was surprised. As I responded to her question, she said: “Oh, I don’t want to cry.” She fanned her face with her h... Keep Reading

Happy Advent

December 23, 2015 | by: Becca Miller |0 Comments

Dec. 6 marks six months since we arrived to Chiang Mai. I suppose time flies as fast on this side of the world as it does in America. After a week or two of chalking fatigue up to culture transition, I found that indeed, we are pregnant. :) A teammate here reminded us that so much of what happens in this life is less about us and more about God's mysterious Sovereignty, a beautiful reminder since the timing of this little babe has made for a continued wea...

Joy

December 23, 2015 |0 Comments

“O Christ, “All your ways of mercy tend to end in my delight. You did weep, sorrow, suffer that I might rejoice. For my joy you have sent the Comforter, multiplied your promises, shown me my future happiness, given me a living fountain. “You are preparing me joy for me and me for joy; I pray for joy, wait for joy, long for joy; give me more than I can hold, desire, or think of. Measure out to me my times and degrees of joy, at my work, ... Keep Reading

"If We Don't Do It, Who Will?"

December 23, 2015 | by: Brian Ellison |0 Comments

Fifty years ago, TV executive Bill Melendez approached cartoonist Charles Schulz with a request – would he please not include the passage from the Bible in the upcoming “Charlie Brown Christmas” special? Schulz, creator of the famous “Peanuts” characters that inspired the animated program, responded “If we don’t do it, who will?” That simple question won over Melendez and other nervous network executives, m...

Five Things You Need to Know about Music

December 3, 2015 | by: Pastor Byron Peters |0 Comments

As CCC bids farewell to Wen Reagan (December 27 will be his last Sunday with us) and begins the search for a new Music Director, it’s a good time for some fresh reflections on worship at CCC. As you pray for our next Music Director (if you know anyone, please let me know!), take some time to consider Five Things You Need to Know about Music. 1. God’s image-bearers are created as music-makers, so this legitimate expression of human culture will... Keep Reading

Thankful..."For you are with me"

November 19, 2015 | by: Brian Ellison |0 Comments

Each year as we gather in homes for Thanksgiving, we are frequently reminded of the first one held at Plymouth Colony in 1621. The first Thanksgiving, contrary to the more common historical narrative, was actually a three-day harvest feast – a fairly common event in England – rather than a one-day meal. The event likely took place in late September and included guests from the Wampanoag tribe, who outnumbered the settlers (“Pilgrims&rdqu... Keep Reading

Honduras

November 12, 2015 | by: Tiffany Shin |0 Comments

A while ago, God placed a burden in my heart for the lost and suffering in other parts of the world. My husband Richard and I have wrestled with knowing how to respond to this burden and desire to serve the Lord. In August, I had an opportunity to respond and use God-given skills as a pediatrician and Spanish-speaker to serve with a medical team in La Ceiba, Honduras through Mission to the World. Fellow CCC member Jessie Stewart also served as a physician ... Keep Reading

Brenden in Burma

November 12, 2015 | by: Brenden Miller |0 Comments

I just returned from my first trip to Burma! I was a part of a Community Development Training course (CD) for Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) in Myitkyina, the capital of Kachin State in Northern Myanmar. My role was a pretty basic one, read the material, come and assist in any way that I could in order to one day be able to reproduce and lead the training somewhere else. The trip and training were a really great experience. The training was loosely ba... Keep Reading

Restfulness

November 12, 2015 | by: Robin Price |0 Comments

Matthew 11:30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Resting is hard because I'm a sinner. Resting is unfruitful because I don't do it the right way. In fact, most of the time I don't even think about it the right way. In mid-August, after the crazy busy-ness of both camp and VBS was over and the interns had just moved out of my apartment, I found myself craving some much needed rest. And it felt wonderful to have lazy days, to watch tv and even to na... Keep Reading

Indiaversary Reflections

November 12, 2015 | by: John and Alison W |0 Comments

October 5th marked four years that we’ve lived in Bangalore. We didn’t remember our “Indiaversary” until several days later though, for the best possible reason – we were just busy in our lives here. The last year and definitely the last few months, we have felt more settled here than ever before. There have been some big developments this year, such as the boys joining a neighborhood group of Indian homeschoolers for weekly H... Keep Reading
