Colliding particles

Life is a lot like matter. Matter is a lot like life.

Saying ‘goodbye’ is the hardest

I felt like something was tugging in my heart, pulling me a certain direction. I had the opportunity to teach English, but I was uncertain. Maybe Asia is where I'm supposed to be, but I don't know. I wish I had a clear answer.

Plentiful harvest

The area of South Asia where I served has the highest concentration of spiritual lostness in the world, but don’t let that statement scare you. While the country is covered in darkness, God’s light is shining brighter than ever.

Flooded by love

I woke up and looked around my room at two empty beds where two great people had been.

Lessons learned

It is not a question whether this summer was challenging. At moments it was flat-out difficult. 

Bringing peace to a heavy heart

Among our other tasks, our team visited people in Puebla, Mexico.

Comfortable surroundings

One thing I have found really awesome since arriving in East Asia is that it is not so different from home. We are living in a very nice westernized apartment that has pretty much everything I could want—minus Internet, so far.

From tears to joy

For most of my time in Asia, I felt a lot spiritual warfare happening.

Rain or shine

When we had our last block party of the summer, it underscored the sad realization that we only had a few short weeks left in Philly. 

Sharing our dreams

My three-week trip to East Asia included two camps—one for college students and the second one where I volunteered to serve poor children.

Counting blessings

I know the Lord blessed me greatly by placing me at Texas Baptist Children’s Home this summer.

Answered prayer

God is so good, and I am beyond excited about all his work with Elevation Church in Loveland, Colorado.

Seeing the hand of God

Our last destination for our summer mission was Puebla, Mexico. Even though we were only there for eight days, it felt that we had been there a whole month. During those days, Eunice and I worked with five churches in five towns—San Luis Ajajalpan, San Luis, Sab Pablo, Tepeaca and Yehualtepec. This meant we were only with a church for 24 hours or 48 hours maximum, making our time in Puebla extremely busy and hectic.

Opportunity of a lifetime

When I think about my dreams, I get emotional. I have experience putting my dreams aside to accommodate others.

Embracing Moldova

Moldova teamDuring the amazing 11 days our mission team spent in Moldova this summer, God showed me how to build relationships with my community to show the love of Christ with others.
