Something that I have learned a lot about in the past couple of weeks are the different challenges that people in development face. I have been doing ICT trainings at Nkayi Primary School.  I am trying to show the teachers how to take the trillions of records that they keep on notebooks and on random..

Name: Dr. Paul Thistle How I know/heard about them: Dr. Thistle hosted the team from Booth University College when some of us came to Zimbabwe in 2011. It is because of his willingness to host us at Howard Hospital that I went to the Salvation Army church on May 24th, 2011 and became a Christian…

“Where is your home?” I’ve been asked that a few times in the past couple of months. And every time that I go to answer, I realize that I don’t know that there is a definite answer to that. My home? My home is in Nkayi, where I have spent the past five months learning..

Name: Kevin Breel How I know/heard about them: The first time I heard about Kevin Breel was with thanks to this Upworthy article.  I saw that it would be a TedTalk on Metal Health, and was a mixture of “here we go again, another person who is going to pour out statistics on mental health..

A video was recently posted to YouTube by World Vision Canada about Nkayi. I had no part in making this video. But I have seen some of the places that are shown in this video.  I have probably waved or said “hi” to some of these children. People may have seen me post statuses to..

Name: Dr. Sherrie Steiner How I know/heard about them: I met Dr. Steiner in the summer of 2009.  I had not done very well in the first year of my undergraduate degree, and was thinking that Social Work was maybe not where I was supposed to be.  In less than 10 minutes of talking to her, I..

Being sick is never fun.  Nobody likes to feel ill. What is worse than being sick, is being sick and in a foreign country, away from family, friends, and chicken noodle soup. As some people know, I have been sick almost since arriving here in June. I’ve been told it’s a sinus infection, and I’ve..

I was thinking tonight about “being thankful”. It’s easy to be thankful for good things. Jobs, status, education, family. But what about the things that aren’t easy? How often are people thankful for challenges, and things that are tough? I was thinking about some things that have been tough in my life, and how I..

So, I have a confession to make: I love Miley Cyrus’ new song “Wrecking Ball”. I have another confession to make: While I understand a lot of the controversy surrounding Miley Cyrus these days, I also really don’t understand it. Do I agree with everything that Miley Cyrus does? Absolutely not. Do I agree with..

Every Monday morning, the World Vision staff gathers for an hour of devotions. Sometimes, I have a hard time with preaching here in Zimbabwe; I tend to have progressive beliefs even in Canada, which certainly means that in the context of Zimbabwe, I might not agree with everything. But two Monday’s ago, I really found..
