Ministering to deaf refugees

I never thought God would use my American Sign Language skills in a summer missions experience with refugees in Fort Worth, but the Lord has a way of bringing things together.

Mission Denton: Making Disciples

Mission DentonMy first impressions of Mission Denton were not what I had imagined. It actually turned out to be much more intensive than I had originally thought—which is great!

God's hand on hearts

 I have seen God's hands in every aspect of Mission Arlington.

Spiritual warfare

I was excited to return this summer to the ministry in East Asia that I had worked with over Christmas break.

Opened eyes

When I first received my assignment to serve in Philadelphia, I had feelings of excitement, nervousness and wonder. 

Beauty from the ashes

The Colorado fires have had a huge effect on the community here in Fort Collins. However, instead of tearing it apart it has brought people together. There is a sense of purpose and camaraderie, even in the face of immeasurable loss.

I was at the pool at Give Kids the World, watching and passing out towels.

I’m in third week here in Round Rock at the Texas Baptist Children’s Home. It certainly has been an eye-opening experience—even though it’s only 20 minutes away from home.

Uncomfortable and loving it

Saturday night at Fun Spot was insanely busy, so when I saw the smiling faces of the other missionaries coming to visit us at work, I was beyond thrilled.

A piece of my heart

Two weeks ago, I boarded a plane for Grand Goave, Haiti, not knowing what to expect — except that God was about to do something radical within my heart. Did he ever!
