Can WE change lives?

Reaching out. In the past 6 months, I’ve seen this phrase play out in Scripture repeatedly. In Luke chapter 8 Jesus was on his way to the ruler of the Synagogue’s house to heal the ruler’s deathly ill daughter. As they rushed through the crowded streets to reach the young girl, there was a woman […]

Is Perfectionism Hindering You From Sharing the Gospel?

About halfway through my Discipleship Training School outreach, my team spent a week in a Cambodian village (during Khmer New Year). It’s a week I won’t forget. In the mornings, we usually walked to houses in the village, visiting and talking with people. If we visited with Christians, we prayed and encouraged them. If we […]

What Have You Placed Your Hope In?

On EDTS outreach in 2016, my team spent most our time in mountainside villages sharing the gospel and distributing Bibles. We hiked from one place to the next; gathering those who were willing to listen. One morning, we were asked to visit a woman who was considered “crazy” by her community. Her husband requested we […]

Are You Willing to Take the Leap This Spring?

I walked into the office of the grocery store I worked at and turned in my two week notice not knowing exactly what I would be doing after those two weeks ran out. I had started an application to attend the Discipleship Training School (DTS) run by Youth With A Mission (YWAM) that started on […]

Are you looking for more than the American Dream?

The American Dream.  You know the one.  Get good grades. Go to college. Get a good paying job. Fall in love. Get married. Get the giant house with the white picket fence. Have kids. And continue the life to ensure that your kids can live the American dream too. But what if that American dream […]

You’re Going to Meet Jesus!

“You’re going to go do a DTS? You’re going to meet Jesus!” A stranger looked at me with tears in his eyes, as this shocking statement hit my heart. Meet Jesus? I already have! I was not sure what this statement meant, but it was the third time that someone had leaned over a table […]

“Have you Discovered Your Calling?”

THIS IS OUR CALLING. We go into the world to bring the love of Jesus to those living in fear, to those who are orphaned, to the lost and hurting world. We do this because He said to go. There is no option to stay. We desire what He desires: that all should know him. […]

It Is Worth It!

Hello, Taiwan, it’s nice to finally meet. This plane touching down, this is a year and a half of praying and dreaming. This is seven months of raising support and fighting fidgeting nerves. This is three months of dedication, self-sacrifice, self-discovery, and preparation. But, oh, wait. I’ve been here once before, haven’t I? That’s right, I’ve lived here for […]
