• What Ezekyal Taught Me About Prayer

    What a profound thought, right? If you say you are going to pray for someone that you actually do it
  • GOD's Greatness

    GOD does not need you. GOD certainly does not need me. In fact, we definitely get in His way more often than not, and it takes way longer to complete a task with us bumbling around when GOD could be finished in no time. That is a hard fact to digest and it is a humbling viewpoint of who we are in light of who GOD is.

    There is only one explanation that makes this humbling fact one of the best things in the world. In GOD's greatness and infinite character, He desires a relationship with each one of us...He wants us. He wants me, He wants you.

  • Haiti, Fundraiser, and General Update

    Pray specifically for our kids and employees. Being a part of an American organization could very well put a target on your back in Haiti, and we are praying that everyone connected to ATN stays safe and protected. Also pray for continued wisdom as we try to navigate this new era of social and political unrest and what may happen to the school year again if things continue to worsen.
  • Communication Issues

    Communication is really hard. All of us, no matter how open we believe ourselves to be with others, keep a lot of how we feel and what we want to say inside. Half the time I'm pretty sure I don't even know how I feel much less how to communicate how I am feeling to another person or to GOD. I don't know about you, but there are numerous times that Jessica actually tells me that I am feeling a certain way far before I have a clue, and she is usually right.
  • A Coup Attempt and What It Teaches Us About Living

    The change starts with me. How can I show my kids, all 30 of them, that our whole lives and this whole world are all about Jesus? How can I teach them and show them that the only thing of any true value is the Word of GOD because it is the only thing that will not fade away?
  • What Does Tragedy Look Like?

    If you remember about a month ago, I wrote a blog that linked to a famous sermon called Don't Waste Your Life by John Piper. I have since listened to the sermon again, and I want to tell you something that I noticed about Haiti and All Things New when listening.
  • There's Something Different About This Faith

    The deck is stacked in our favor because the GOD of the universe in whom our faith is found is also the GOD of our souls who would do anything, including dying on the Cross, to show His love for us. 
  • A New All Things New Experience!

    Stay tuned and get ready to feel like you are back in Haiti, or there for the first time. If we cannot bring you to Haiti, we want to try and bring Haiti to you!
  • Top 5: A Christmas/New Year Version

    The last 2 weeks for All Things New and for the Bush family has been wonderful. We have been a little out of communication with our website and blog, but we have been talking to our team in Haiti a lot even with the distance between us. We hope everyone reading this had a great Christmas worshipping their Savior and a wonderful New Year's Day getting ready for what we hope is everyone's best year yet!
  • Christmas, Covid, and Joy

    Our joy comes from the fact that, as a follower of Christ, I get to spend eternity with Him in Heaven. So no matter what you do or say to me right now or 20 years from now, in the end I get to be with my Savior. Forever...And Ever...And Ever. And after 10,000 years of being intensely in the presence of GOD and contemplating and seeking every aspect of who He is, I will not be any closer to the fullness of His joy than I was when I started.
  • What Do You Care About?

    When we study our lives and where we spend our time, efforts, and money then we will see what we truly care about and I am afraid that many of us may not like what we find. Can we make a deal? Can we please stop talking about and acting like we care about things when nothing about our actions or our lives show that we do?
  • Our First Coder's First Job!

    This is a blog that I have been wanting to write for a long time now, and I cannot believe that it is finally time to write it. Thank you to Arlington Baptist Church here in Jacksonville for giving us and our program a chance! I wanted to go into a little detail of what we are doing and what our plans are for the future so you can continue to pray for us and stay updated on everything.
