Is This Really The End?

Our last month of ministry.
That concept was hard enough for me to wrap my mind around when we started ministry in Cambodia.
And now, 30 days later, our month of ministry is now over.
That idea is even harder for me to comprehend.
Not only has our time in Cambodia flown by, but when I think back over this race, it seriously feels like I’ve only been gone a month.

I could not imagine a better way to finish our time of ministry.  We had an excellent placement this month.  We have been …

Good Morning Vietnam

Our month in Vietnam came and went faster than I had wanted.  I still can’t get my mind around the fact that I will be home in 30 days.  I didn’t really know what to expect when we arrived in Vietnam.  My whole squad was stationed right in the middle of Tourist Central, Nam style.  Our hotel was situated between countless souvenir shops, bootleg movie stores, and restaurants promising the best “Western” cuisine.  Stepping out of the hotel I could see countless travelers, all loaded down with their backpacks searching …

Asian Invasion

Our first month in Asia has been absolutely incredible.  I love the culture here.
I really miss Africa, but the Thai people have made me fall in love with this part of the world all over again.  This month we were assigned to a church up north in Thailand.  We worked with a WONDERFUL pastor in his house church all month.  I think this month has for sure been my most fun yet.  Our pastor is an incredible man and he filled our days with tons of great ministry and lots …

Witty Nelson

Do you ever have those people in your life who you know God made to be in your life at the perfect time?  My friend Lindsay is that for me.  About 6 months ago, our teams got changed around and Lindsay and I were put together, along with Martha and Ashley – two of my best friends in the whole world (don’t worry, I’ll be writing about them later this week).

So back to Lindsay.  This girl is the most passionate, exciting, powerful woman I have ever met.  She is such …

Africa Overview, Video Style

Since I spend most of my time behind my Nikon and not a video camera, I thought I would allow the talent of my fellow squad mates speak for me as I wrap up this last African post…
Our African journey started back in December with our longest travel day yet.  Ashley Higgins made this hilarious video about our journey from the Middle East to Kenya.

Life in Africa can be a bit challenging at times to say the least…Team Mosaic made a video about all of the “lessons” we have had …

Three Months-No Snakes!

While I wouldn’t say that not seeing any snakes sums up my African experience…it sure does make me feel a whole lot better!  We have successfully finished our ministry in Africa and are currently in Bangkok, Thailand getting ready for three months of ministry in Southeast Asia.
So what can I say to sum up my three-month journey in Africa?  How could I even begin to sum up my incredible experiences on this wonderful continent?  I think the one word I would use would be Powerful.  I saw God power displayed …

Covered in Dust

I am sitting under the stars in Uganda.
The house we are living in has no power, so they are the clearest I have ever seen them.
It’s nighttime and most of my team is already asleep.
Trying to unwind, I decide to wash my feet.
As I take the wash bucket, I begin to clean off layer after layer of street dirt.
Dirt as red as Georgia clay.
It is a peaceful night and I am at rest after a very hard day of ministry.
No sleep.  Fear.  Power.  Healings.  Demons.  Muslims.  Opposition.  Freedom.  Salvations.
This month …

Iasou Mulungi!

God is Good!!  I came to know this phrase in a whole new way this week.
It was the end of a very long week for us.  I had been leading a team of 12 in the bush and our ministry lasted about 13 hours a day.  It was our last night before a day off and we were all exhausted.  “Just a few more hours” I thought to myself.  We turned the Jesus Film on and expected to have a few hours of rest until prayer time at the end.  …

Breath of Life

At the end of February, both J and K squads gathered in Jinja, Uganda for a few days of rest before Tanzania.  While we were there the most incredible miracle I have ever hear about happened.  Here is the story as written by Marissa Vila, a J squad member.
They met for the first time in the Atlanta, Georgia airport back in May 2009. Matt Patch, Austin Anglea and Dan Snyder: instant brothers with much in common. After training camp the three of them had dreams and visions of the Lord …

Sins of Their Fathers

“For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me…” ~ Deuteronomy 5:9
Does God punish children for the sins for their fathers?
Does this Deuteronomy passage speak only to the Israelites of the Old Testament?  Or is there some string of truth for the world today?
While we were going evangelizing a few days ago, a 10-year-old girl named Flo approached me.  She asked me to pray for her baby brother.  …
