Tell the stories of God's faithfulness

My time in Colorado as a student missionary came to a close, and I have reluctantly returned to the stifling heat of Texas.

Just passing through

As I sat on the airplane returning to Texas from Venezuela I thought about how foreign I felt all summer.

Under attack

I currently am preparing for a missionary journey to East Asia where I will serve five months, with the prayer and vision to start a disciple-making church. I knew spiritual warfare takes place prior to these trips. But when I officially signed up for this trip back in February, only God could have prepared me for what I was about to go through.

Seeing neighbors come to Christ

Within the first two weeks of arriving in Venezuela, we developed strong friendships with our neighbors.
