Exploring Nature with Jerry Hall: Trinidad birding is a must

If you have never experienced tropical birding, let me recommend a trip to Trinidad-Tobago, specifically to Asa Wright Nature Centre in Trinidad.

Asa Wright is housed in a big old house with nice, clean rooms and a wonderful dining room where the serving ladies will cater to your epicurean desires.  

I asked if they could prepare the national dish of Trinidad, which is “pelau,” a thick stew combining rice, chicken and assorted veggies.  The ladies had it ready for lunch the next day, and it was delicious.

The Journey Continues with Brother Jim: Revisiting Liza Fischer and Good Neighbors

My journey at Mission:  Good Neighbors has just completed week six of 10.  

There are like-minded programs called “Vacation Bible School” going on all over San Marcos. Volunteers who love children have prepared lessons, baked cookies and transported kids so the seed of faith can be planted and watered for Jesus.         

 One such volunteer at Redwood Baptist this summer is Liza Fischer, music program leader and a professional cellist with a master’s degree in music from her home country of Ukraine.
