Training Camp

Well I am officially a Training Camp survivor.  And survivor I am.  Anyone who sleeps in 150% humidity in a cabin with 30 other girls, on the third story top bunk is a survivor in my book.  Also, anyone who is walking down a path only to look down and see a HUGE black snake right by her foot when she is TERRIFIED of snakes should earn the award for ultimate survivor.  But I digress…For the past 10 days I have had the wonderful opportunity to spend time with 80+ …

Finances

Finances.  This is one subject that I absolutely hated talking about. I almost initially did not do the World Race because I did not want to go around and seem as though I was begging people for money.  However, fundraising has actually been one of the most amazing processes for me.  As I have been fundraising, God has been teaching me that it is not me begging for money, but rather a group of Christians joining together to make a ministry possible.  In this particular instance, I just happen to …

Update

If I’ve learned nothing else over the past few months, it’s that I have a proficiency for procrastination when it comes to blogging.  Lucky for all of you, that’s not the only thing that I have retained in the many months since I last updated.  So I will now present to my many, many readers (it’s probably more like 4 of you ?, an update of what has been going on with me these past few months.

First on the list, ladies and gentlemen, is what I am told is the …

Agape Meal

Shalom all!  I just wanted to tell you a little bit about an experiment that some friends and I are doing.   Each week we meet together, Early Church Style for a few hours.  Way back when, the Early Church had a practice which they called Agape Meal, or Love Feast.  During these times, they would each bring what little food that they had and make a big meal out of it.  They would then sit around and share the stories of God in their lives.  They would talk about …

Expecations of My Missions Trip

We were asked to write a blog about how we felt before leaving on this missions trip.  Here is what I am expecting…

~ To be challenged more in 11 months than I have been in 22 years.
~ To experience God like I have never imagined.
~ To learn about myself, even though it’s hard at times, and become the woman I was created to be.
~ To see God in different contexts and people groups.
~ To grow so close to 4-6 other people that they become like family.
~ To miss my family …

How I Was Called to the Mission Field

We were asked to write a story of how we were called into the mission field.  Here is my story…
When I was little, I remember in school when the teacher would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I was never able to answer them.  I wasn’t quite able to pick a profession that I really loved or wanted to do for the rest of my life.  Fifteen years later, I still feel the same way.  I am getting ready to graduate in less than …
