East Asia: Better than expected

STUDENT MISSONS BLOG: A few days before Christmas, I had the opportunity to host a Christmas party here in East Asia.

Four months invested

STUDENT MISSIONS BLOG: As I leave the city where I’ve served for four months, I can't help but be excited to return home with my family and friends. But it also saddens me to leave the life I have semi-built here in East Asia and the relationships I have formed.

Cost of discipleship

STUDENT MISSIONS BLOG: I have seen God work in a very different way in the lives of the students—differently than I have ever seen or experienced before.

Frustration

For a couple of weeks, I've been having long conversations with a friend of mine who is a Buddhist.

Learning about love

Lately, I've been learning a lot about love and what it truly looks like to love others the way that God loves.

Beauty covered in grime

The Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and French fries—that’s about all I knew about Paris before I went there. 

Let God do it

Things have been kind of hard here lately. We've been here for more than two months, and we've done a lot of good work. But sometimes I wish we could see more fruit.

Faith overcoming doubt

Recently, when we led a a group of East Asian students in a lesson about the birth of Jesus, we posed three questions: What does this teach you about God? What does this teach you about mankind? How should this influence you to change your life?

Similar but different

Where I’m serving in East Asia, the culture is quite similar to America in some ways and very different in others.

Change in London

I’m beginning to understand what the Apostle Paul meant in 1 Corinthians 9: 22-23.

Authenticity

The other day I was able to talk to my mom on Skype, which is always great since I've been away from my family for about a month and a half now.
