Learning from children

I expected that the adults at Mission Denton—not the children we work with—would have an impact on my life. I have been surprised.

Building a bridge

As I seek to establish meaningful relationships with people in East Asia, it’s like building a bridge. Or maybe it’s more like building a pyramid, one layer at a time.

Thailand: A special place in my heart

Students ThailandGod is so faithful. There is a girl I recently met here in Bangkok whom I absolutely love. She really relates to us well, and she's just precious.

London: Tough questions at tea time

Bowman in LondonIn London, my Monday morning was spent inside a church, serving coffee and tea to people coming in off the streets.

And so it begins

For the past few days, I lived in a room with three empty beds. But now, I am sleeping in a room where two beds are filled with my new roommates, Alfred and Ryan.

“I” trouble

I knew I had a package arriving from home. I decided to check the mail a little early, even though I was pretty sure it wouldn’t be here yet.

God gives strength

I struggle to find the words to express the amazing week I had watching sixth graders build relationships and share their faith with kids right here in Arlington.

Passionate Portland

In the time I’ve spent in Portland, Ore., one thing I’ve noticed about the people is that they are all passionate about something.

So similar

The One Brothel Ministry that I work with here in East Asia has given me so many opportunities to share and to care for so many hurting girls.

Cultural differences

In orientation, we learned how to interact with people here in East Asia.

Field trip to remember

I was chosen from among the summer missionaries to go with a group of kids to a museum for a field trip.

Least of the least

I was holding Alice. She is one of the cutest little girls I’ve ever seen—huge brown eyes, gorgeous skin and a smile that would melt anyone’s heart. As we were laughing and playing, it’s as if I heard God whisper to me, “The least of these.”

Immediate culture shock

As Americans, we often complain about our living arrangements—especially college students, myself included. But think about how great we have it. We don't stop to think that we're so fortunate to live in a country where we are pampered and have become spoiled.

Prayers for Cuba

Looking back, my three weeks in Cuba were filled with immense blessings and time to be used by God.

Holy Spirit at work in Thailand

God is really at work. Just about every day, we head over to Chulalongkorn University where we have appointments with students.
