We have eight children and I love birth, so when God nudged me to start a birth center in Oaxaca, Mexico, it seemed like the logical next step in our long-term family ministry here. We could use compassionate maternity care to reach women with the love of God! Read the rest of this entry »
Forget Black Friday & Cyber Monday
Thanksgiving kicks off a busy season. The sales of Black Friday have been an American tradition for many, many years. Recently, the addition of Cyber Monday has added to the consumerism mindset - only with an online shopping flavor. Maybe this year we could make a difference by trying something different when Tuesday, November 27th rolls around? Read the rest of this entry »

“One of the most important reasons to travel is to know what it feels like to be a foreigner.” - A. A. Gill
Not until I had been off North American soil for three months did I fully realize how much I missed home. South America was still “America;” I don’t know what I expected, but I didn’t expect to feel so out of place, so distant, so foreign. On a daily basis, I found myself in situations where I was completely dependent on local people for the most basic necessities: food, water, transportation, communication. There was no “Spanglish” spoken here. Read the rest of this entry »
Michael Jordan told us we should drink Gatorade because he used it to get through tough games, and we listened. Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, told us that Weight Watchers helped her lose ten more pounds, and we listened.
We listen even more when an endorsement comes from someone who isn’t getting paid to say all the right things. In a recent blog post we shared with you stories from various alumni and students and Multnomah’s effect on their lives. These are powerful testimonials. Read the rest of this entry »
Again and again you will hear Multnomah faculty and staff members say "Alumni are our greatest recruiters," and they are proven correct as we listen to the stories.
