Miracles Never Cease

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

100% Funded Challenge

 When you’re on the mission field, it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day of ministry and work and doing what God calls us to do.

I remember well the pain of developing that callus. When we first started learning penmanship, our teacher handed… Continue reading Some Things Should Not Be Erased

Smooth Sailing Down Mekong; What’s Next?

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?

Down the Mekong – Halfway There!

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

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

Our Week in Udon Thani

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
