As we all sat in the tukal, -sisters, brothers-in-law, father, mother, grandchildren, friends and relatives, the sunlight streamed in the door, glancing off the feathers of inquisitive baby chicks, and falling softly on the faces of those who had gathered to share their grief. War had a face. We do not grieve...as though without hope. 1 Thess 4:13-14...read more.

What We Do
While every SAMS missionary goes to the mission field prepared to share the Gospel within a contextualized method, there are many issues which SAMS missionaries have been called to address within their host countries.
All in the Dallas-Fort Worth area are invited to join SAMS at a mission day that will include Anglican Global Mission Partners (AGMP) across the country. Local Anglican Global Mission Partners will include SOMA, the Diocese of Dallas World Mission Commission, and the Diocese of Fort Worth World Mission Committee. SAMS missionaries Ron and Debby McKeon will lead a workshop on hosting international guests and Stewart Wicker will host a workshop on missionary discernment. SAMS will also have an exhibit.

In Cochabamba, time is a dispensable commodity. It is thoroughly senseless, Bolivians well know, to save it, hold it too dear, or hurry it along. Things come when they will and leave when they must, much like the evening breeze that slips through the leaves of the Pacay tree outside my window.
“One who does not believe in God will not believe in God´s people. He who believes in God´s people will see His Holiness too…And what is the use of Christ´s words unless we set an example?” --Dostoyevsky
It´s a little after 5 p.m. here, and right on schedule, it´s starting to drizzle. It´s rainy season, which will last until sometime in March. All afternoon I watch bulging clouds advance towards us from the South, until they blanket the sky and wring themselves out in the late afternoon. The rains this year have been particularly heavy, with flooding—and the resulting water-borne diseases, closed schools, lost homes and crops—widespread across Bolivia. One morning last week, my family woke up at 5:30 a.m. to bail rain water out of the kitchen.
