    One Year Later

    This week marks the one year anniversary since me and my Hume community were evacuated due to the Rough Fire. How are we doing, one year later? After spending five or more weeks as refugees?

    The Ministry of Hume in Hawaii

    In April my family and I had the privilege of going on vacation with some of our extended family to Maui, Hawaii. We stayed in a VRBO house. To get there, one needed to turn left off the Hana Highway, just past the coconut stand, and go two miles down a dirt road. The house […]
