We met Domingo the first time we crawled through the hole in the barbed wire fence. We wanted to meet some of the people we saw shuffling down that dusty foot path behind our house day after day. We had only lived in Paraguay for a few months, so we grabbed a local friend who could speak Guarani and wiggled through. What we found was incredible. Some folks emerged from the forest with a bucket on their heads to carry water. Others were hard at work bundling and lashing sticks together to build cooking fires. Some had spent the early [...read more and comment...]

YAY!! It’s Friday, uh, I mean Photo Friday. First, let me apologize to all of you who expect Photo Friday in your reader or email to savor with your morning cup of coffee.

After an extended, albeit necessary developmental interlude, Jesus Junk International is back and stronger than ever. A little market research was in order. We wanted our collective finger on the erratic pulse of Christendom to decipher what products were most desired, needed, even necessary. It was a scary enterprise, to be sure, but one we wanted, nay, needed to do if we were to give our faithful customers the best in church enhancement products. When the skymiles were spent and the data tabulated, we found our target. It was clear to us here at Jesus Junk that Christians are not immune to [...read more and comment...]
