Greetings from Bangkok, Thailand, and from the newly-certified graduate of the Teaching English as a Foreign Language program! I spent most of February studying and practice teaching in a TEFL course, from which I graduated on February 27. I have been wanting to take the course for so many years, but time and finances and… Continue reading Certifiable!
Bangkok. Wow, it’s different. Chiang Mai was a “small” city of three million people, or at least that’s how I came to view it after living there for nearly three years. Bangkok. Not so much. Everything you read about Bangkok is true. It’s big. It’s busy. It’s really warm. Wait. It’s monstrous. It’s crazy. It’s… Continue reading Braving Bangkok: Reporting for Duty
I’d be lying if I said the last few months have been easy. After Discipleship Training School and two months in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, I hit a bit of a lull, and I’ve been trying to get out of the funk ever since. I hardly realized for the last 12 weeks what has been… Continue reading Miracles Never Cease

Boundaries communicate value." - Danny Lee Silk It makes sense… Continue reading Fenceless Gardens are Fruitless
We left behind many things during our recent mission trip down the Mekong River. Many of those things include mostly shoes, namely one grey flip-flop, a pair of black flip-flops, and a pair of plaid tennis shoes. I also lost a pair of Thai pants that ripped all the way down the leg after I'd… Continue reading Smooth Sailing Down Mekong; What’s Next?
Hello Friends and Church Families! I am reporting from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where God is present and Jesus is alive! Our journey began four weeks ago, and the time has gone by so quickly. I cannot tell you how many seeds we have seen planted along the Mekong in Southeast Asia. Our adventures have been… Continue reading Down the Mekong – Halfway There!
Please cover us in prayer. Dear Friends and Church Families, In two weeks we will leave for a two-month outreach to some very hard places. The enemy is up to his tricks and is attempting to put up barriers that will hinder our journey. We know he doesn't want us to shine light in the… Continue reading Please Cover Us In Prayer

I wanted to share some photos from our outreach to Issan in northeastern Thailand. This was the first mission trip many of our students have ever taken. It was a great week with a full schedule, and I was honored to see our students step out and step up to share the Gospel. God was… Continue reading Our Week in Udon Thani
