Overwhelmed by Generosity

By Heather Molina The day that I first met Tina* and her family is a day that I will not soon forget. It was a horribly windy and dusty day, and as we pulled up in front of Tina’s home we saw a group of children playing in the street, barefoot and happy. All of […]

Seeing the Hidden

During these challenging times, One Life has begun to partner with local pastors in a new way – working together to serve meals in various communities! We have been serving 2 – 3 meals each week with up to 200 people per meal receiving something delicious to eat. God is using these events to demonstrate […]

Our Daily Bread

During this unique time in history, all of us are navigating change. This crisis has heightened our understanding of how little control we have over so many daily things. The words of Jesus, “…give us this day, our daily bread…” resonate as we are more acutely reminded that He is indeed our source for everything. […]

Shiver Cold

What Day is This? So, it’s 2:00 am and I hear the clock tick. No one to ask any questions or any need to make a decision. It should be the perfect time and place for my “nothing box”. Yet, my head is filled with so much…to the point I can’t sleep. As I write, […]

Share the Warmth

By Heather Molina When you think of Mexico, what typically comes to mind is something like palm trees, sun, and nice ocean waves, right? A lot of people are surprised that a cold-weather campaign would even need to exist – but during these winter months, the cold is very cold! Here in San Quintin, the […]

We have students at Duncan Christian School on Vancouver Island who regularly deal with an inability to access safe drinking water in […]

More Threads in the Tapestry

It was the 90’s and, “We were young. None of us knew quite what to say, but the feeling moved among us in silence anyway. Slowly we made Quite a change. Somewhere we had crossed a big line. Down on our knees, we had tasted Holy Wine, and no one could sway us in a […]

No Other Way

It has been so humbling to witness how the Lord is moving in the San Quintin Valley. The stories and emails of lives changed continue to come in…and it’s not always through our organization, but through the Pastors who have become our friends and partners. We assist, but they always do the heavy lifting. This […]

Parting Words

It has a been a year of adventure. Traveling Canada twice (once a bike and then again with a touring band), spending a summer up in the woods of northern BC planting trees, living in an co-op community project with 25 other 20-somethings, and spending time with the staff and directors of One Life investing […]

It’s Summer

I know this by the challenges and the way things continue to be difficult. Shouldn’t have expected otherwise! Shared with Pastor Basilio yesterday (a friend and Pastor to the community surrounding San Quintin) everything this year comes at a cost and is hard. This last week, six of us gave up 4 days. We worked […]
