The Surge From Taipei’s Point of View

YWAM Montana is partnering with YWAM Taipei in an initiative called “The Surge”. We are partnering with YWAM Taipei’s vision to pioneer YWAM locations in 3 of the least-reached areas of Taiwan. We’re also working together towards three God-sized goals. We want to see 500 Disciples. YWAM Taipei is defining this as “new believers who are receiving ongoing discipleship”. […]

Why Do I Dance?

Our dance company recently returned from a tour across the southern United States. While in the South we quickly realized that self-expression isn’t as prevalent in southern churches and Christian communities as some of the other places that we’ve traveled.  However, we knew that dance was on God’s heart, so we obediently stepped out. We reminded ourselves that it’s not about […]

Knowing Vs Believing

I will be vulnerable and honestly say this past month has been hard for me. Our ministry here in Nepal has been spirit led, the team has continually grown, and we have had the privilege to see God moving in Nepal. In spite of all of this, this past month has still been a struggle. This is the […]

Teach Me to Love

It been a long three weeks, but I have really loved Thailand. A lot has gone on, from spending time with some people in prison to hanging out in a remote village on the border of Myanmar to teaching English to so many students of different ages. Even with all that going on, I haven’t […]

Planting Seeds and Trusting God

God totally blew my mind the other day.  Here’s the story. One of the temples in Chiang Mai does something called Monk Chat.  Basically, a tourist can sit down with a monk and ask questions about Buddhism and what it’s like to be a monk. We use this as a ministry opportunity.  It’s a cool […]

The Gospel Brings Hope

So wat di, khap! (hello in Thai) We’ve been in Thailand for about a week now. It seems crazy because it feels much longer than that. In America, there’s a saying that says ‘there’s a church on every street corner’. Imagine that, but instead of churches it’s Buddhist temples, and I would say that there […]

What’s The Point?

I couldn’t understand what she was saying, but I could feel the pain in her heart.  Her mouth showed signs of drug abuse, with stained and missing teeth.  As my friend from YWAM Cheb asked her a question in Czech I picked out and understood one word of her answer. Pět. Five. It was the […]

Bringing Hope to the Darkest Places

While watching mopeds zip by on one of Chiang Rai’s busiest streets, I wait to meet Kelli at a café. Kelli is the founder of Ezekiel Rain, a ministry committed to bringing restoration to children rescued from sex trafficking. Kelli walks through the door, we order coffee, and before getting into the details of her […]

Hidden with Christ

January 3rd, I woke up early on a Friday morning and took a train from Michigan to Montana. The train ride lasted over forty hours which gave me plenty of time to question what the heck I was doing. I quit a job I had held for too long, sold a vehicle I loved, and […]
