One Cup of Coffee

This week in Israel has been really wonderful for me.  We got to tour Galilee and I watched two of my sisters rededicate their lives to the Lord and be baptized in the Jordan River.  I love baptisms.  It is such a beautiful moment and it always reminds me that the Lord’s grace and forgiveness are available all the time.  We spent the rest of the week watching the five children that have become our ministry for this month.  The children have had a hard life, but are so blessed …

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 …
