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.
       

Preparing the field

The other day, a student asked me about the burning bush.
       

Finding joy in God’s timing

I’ve learned that whenever we cannot rely on anything or anyone but that Father, that is when God will speak.
       

Struggles and blessings

After a couple of weeks of settling in, we are starting to make friends with students in the area.
       

What is the truth?

Recently, I was given the opportunity to visit a mosque. This was the first time I'd ever been to a mosque, and I didn't know what to expect.
       

You are loved

The lecture for the day was about love. I decided to use the opportunity to talk about my Father and about how much he loves me. We sat in a circle in the field, and it was time for me to open up.
       

Going beyond

After a heart-wrenching goodbye at the airport, I sat and wrote in my journal before boarding the plane.
