Genuine trumps polite

I have been incredibly humbled to be in this great city of Philadelphia. I came into this ready to be shut down, intimidated and in fear of the people. Making assumptions is never a positive start, and I learned the error of my ways pretty soon.

Culture shock in Cuba

The humid warm weather, palm trees and dark red dirt captured my attention as we left the airport upon our arrival in Havava.

Making friends in Thailand

My first time in a Thai church made a deep impression on me.

God still moves

It’s a joy to be able to take a group of girls from Texas Baptist Children’s Home to camp at Glorieta, N.M.

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.

A Father's Love

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

Learning from children at sports camp

Olivia RodriguezSports Camp only lasted four days, but it felt longer because I bonded with the girls and saw their improvement. I know God put me there because he knew I would learn from the girls more than I could teach them.

In love with Colorado

It's crazy how when God calls you to a country, state, city or people group, the connection is immediate.

Planting seeds in Washington State

Stephanie GibsonMy fellow team members Kyle and Jake were walking around the grocery store sharing a Bible verse with each person they happened to pass in the aisles.

Seeking guidance

I’m underneath the grayest, gloomiest clouds that have ever existed, and it’s just a matter of time before rain starts to drizzle. Occasionally a beam of sunshine can be seen, but only for a few minutes before being swallowed by the sky full of depressed clouds.
