The Simple Life

This month, God has been working on my heart about what true Christian living looks like. What does it look like to actually be Jesus on the streets of a small town in Kenya, or the busy sidewalks of America? I posted earlier this month that God showed me how simple evangelism can be. I am beginning to think that simplicity is the mantle that Jesus is calling me to in all aspects of life. As I was painting a school building last week, I was …

From an Angel

Today I had one of the most incredible experiences of my life.  It happened while Martha, Ashley and I were doing house-to-house visits and happened upon the home of three Muslim girls, Morrine, Beva, and Hadeja.  Ashley, one of the most genuine and amazing women that I know, wrote an incredible testament to the story.
I could write about it, but I’ll let her explain it in her own special way….

Could It Be That Simple?

“Did that really just happen?”  That is the thought that has captured my mind the past several hours.  Today that plan was for us to go door-to-door to evangelize.  My lack of training in this area, coupled with high doubt that any good could possibly come from “Jesus salesmen”, served as a crippling appetizer for internal skepticism.  However, this is where I am called, so go I must.  We entered the first house – all 6 of us crammed in a mud hut with out translator Eric, and an unsuspecting …

Artemis

This week we got the chance to go to Ephesus, Turkey.  Yes, Ephesus, like the book of Ephesians, Ephesus.  Don’t worry; I had no idea it was in Turkey either.  Anyway, today I had two of the most powerful revelations that I have had on the trip thus far.  The first began when my team did one of the coolest things I have ever done.  We were sitting in the ruins of the main theater in Ephesus and decided to read the book of Ephesians out loud.  We were the …

A Look At Croatia

This month our ministry in Croatia was awesome!!  I knew pretty much nothing about Croatia when we arrived in Osijeck with no contacts and no place to stay.  Needless to say, I learned quickly that our month would be filled with lots of adventure and tons of amazing relationships.  Within one day half of us packed up and went off to a small town four hours away.  For a week we built relationships with a pastor and his wife, as well as a missionary couple there from the states.  We …

And Now For Your Viewing Pleasure…

Well we’ve been in Romania for about 2 weeks now and on the Race for officially one month and three days.  Time has flown by to say the least.  I haven’t really had a chance to upload many of my pictures and blogs from Romania, so I thought I would try to lump a bunch all together.  This month we are ministering in a little village called Villi Techi. Our ministry is to love of the people of this village and show the Christ in every way possible.  So far …

Caroling for Christ

This Sunday we all packed up to go to our first Romanian church service.  I was really excited  to experience how the Romanians worship.  We have about 60 World Racers in the small village that we are staying at, so it was great to get to worship together.  The entire January  squad is here, 3 J squad teams plus Joholo and us.  We pretty much tripled the population of this town in one night.  Anyway, after worship our contact got up and said that he felt like the Spirit was …

Typical World Race

This has been such an exciting week! We were packing up to travel from Ireland to Moldova when we learned that our contact there fell through.  So we left at 7am for the Dublin airport and flew to Bucharest, Romania.  From there we got on a 11 hour bus ride to Viilatechi, Romania.  Our team is partnered with Joholo, a wonderful team and great friends.  We are staying with a wonderful host family.  Life here has been wonderful so far!  The village we are in is a gypsy town full …

Healing

Well, this has been quite a week to be sure. I still can’t quite wrap my mind around everything that has happened. To begin this week, we did a children’s ministry at the Causeway Coast Vineyard. The ministry was wonderful! The children’s pastor, Dave, is a great man of faith. He challenged us to look at this week’s ministry, not as a babysitting opportunity, but as a divine appointment for these children. He taught us that there is no Junior Holy Spirit and that God …

There Came a Time

This past Sunday I had the absolute honor of speaking with the wonderful people of Talking Rock First Baptist about missions.  This was my first time speaking before a congregation that I did not know.  I was a little nervous, to say the least.  While I was sharing my heart about missions, I felt the Lord speaking to me that I would not be a stranger to speaking before crowds of people.  This thought began to terrify me, all I could think was – I’m not ready, and I don’t …
