Called to Stand, Equipped to Serve

By Jeremy Tinsley, PrincipalDuncan Christian School During my 11+ years serving as a leader at Duncan Christian School, the Lord has opened my eyes to needs that I didn’t realize exist in Canada. We have students at Duncan Christian School on Vancouver Island who regularly deal with an inability to access safe drinking water in […]

Tell Your Story

By Janaya Hirsch Five years ago, I was sitting on a rickety church pew at a Thursday night youth gathering, when my youth Pastor flip to a slide promoting our church’s “2013 Mexico Missions Trip” with One Life. A spark ignited in my soul that night which hasn’t gone out since. Ministry isn’t a moment […]


” God does not call the qualified, but qualifies the called.” (Walter Bright) Who does God call to be a missionary? Many people are led to believe before a person goes to serve in missions, they need to have all their finances and a secure retirement package in place, and also need endless hours of […]

Building Community

One Life One Chance is an amazing organization! Even through the short time I was able to be in Mexico this past March, helping in the kitchen around the base, I could feel that I was being included in something huge. This ministry is changing lives faster than any of us probably realize. They work […]

The Flood

Last week, as our team in Mexico served families affected by flooding due to heavy rains at the beginning of January, they met Irma and her mother. Irma has been housebound since the flood, as she has limited mobility due to Spinal Bifita. She has experienced much hardship because of her special needs. One of […]

Loving Is So Worth It

Bearing Witness – Tim Rivers

Some stories just need to be told. No logical beginning, no happy ending, nothing neat and tidy. But they need to be told. This story needs to be told. For months Stan Schulz has been telling me I need to understand the plight of special needs children in this place, my place, the San Quintin […]

He Is Faithful – Jeevin Bains

The last 36 hours has been such a major cryfest for me as I transition back to life in Canada. God has put a special place in my heart for the families, the pastors, the kids, and friends I have in Mexico. I can’t continue to forget about them; their ministry, their hearts, and the […]

Eternity – Tim Rivers

As I sit here at the base in Mexico, I find myself thinking a lot about suffering and abuse. I have the usual questions about why God allows such inequity in the world, and where He is in all the suffering. And while I don’t come close to having all the answers I seek, I […]
