Missions close to home

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!

The Lord added to their number

The Scripture passage for a daily Bible study seemed to summarize what my summer in South Korea should be all about.

 

The blessing of a pillow

After a full week in big-city Philadelphia, things are beginning to feel more comfortable.

Fast-paced life in Philly

Since the team and I have been in Philadelphia, we have seen God do amazing things.

Conquering fear

I didn’t really expect to encounter problems before I even arrived on the field for my summer missions assignment. 

A God-shaken snow globe

I am a missions freak. Ever since I was 13 and sensed God calling me to the mission field, I have felt a pull toward missions that I can't fight.

Haiti? Indescribable

Haiti missionsEvery time I try to write about my experience in Haiti building homes from rubble, I don’t even know where to start. Words fail me.

Serving behind a curtain

My first week of summer missions was spent learning how to be a puppeteer—learning the puppet show and songs.

Preparing spiritually

As I leave for Colorado, I have to say: “Goodbye, Texas heat. I won’t miss you.”  I have the opportunity to serve the next two months through Go Now Missions as a summer missionary in Fort Collins/Loveland, Colo., where I will work with several church planters.

 

Greater than my comprehension

My prayer before I went to Haiti on a medical mission was for God to show me more of who he is and how he loves. It was not until Sunday morning that I realized how all-knowing God is.

Learning lessons along the way

God began working on me, teaching me lessons even before I arrived at my missions assignment in Florida.

Learning about putting an end to hunger

Hunger FarmMorning began with a visit to the World Hunger Relief farm near Waco. We learned what the Farm Bill is and how it applies to the issue of food distribution.

Reading John’s Gospel with Peter

I went to the apartment complexes and ran into Peter, a friend from the soccer fields. A few weeks back, I spent two days explaining the gospel to him and answering several of his questions about Christianity, but I hadn't seen him for long enough since then to continue our conversation.
