Jul 19 Relationships and a heart of humility

Costa Rica Team Member

One of the things I wanted to learn by coming to Costa Rica was the commonalities and differences between my own Mexican culture and the Tican culture. There are words and phrases that they use that I don’t normally use, and vice versa! But there is a common value that I believe both Latino cultures… More

Jul 17 Trusting God in Costa Rica

Costa Rica Team Member

For almost a year I got to look forward to going on this Exposure Trip to Costa Rica, and now it’s finally here! I did not know what to expect going into this trip. I had no idea what my host family was going to be like, the food I was going to be eating, or what God wanted to teach me while I… More

Jul 16 God’s Heart for All Nations

China Team Member

My time in China was over in the blink of an eye, but I experienced so much in that short time. Our team was constantly on the move, traveling by foot, planes, vans, taxis, subways, bullet trains, and even motorcycles! The beautiful scenery and culture we witnessed was enough to keep us… More

Jul 16 Scripture Comes Alive in China

China team member

We visited Old Dali City in China and had the opportunity to converse with locals and tourists about the gospel. We approached people to ask them if they had ever heard of Jesus. When possible, we tried to continue the conversation. I had done this type of evangelism before in the United States, but… More

Jul 15 Cafecito, Water Games & More!

Costa Rica Team Member

On Friday, some of us started the morning at 5:15 by playing volleyball in the middle of the street before breakfast. Our host mom, Ana, made us some interesting pancakes, and at the office, we dove straight into our devotionals, which talked about Cain and Abel, Enoch, and Martha and Mary. After… More

Jul 14 The Beautiful and Ugly in Costa Rica

Costa Rica Team Member

Wednesday in Costa Rica really threw us right smack dab into a perfect mixture of the beautiful and the ugly (in my opinion). It was our first day at our mission sites, but a very unique first day. This week the kids are on their last week of their mid-school-year break. So groups got to accompany… More

Jul 10 Prayers for the Ukraine Team

Ukraine Team Member

I am so far from my comfort zone. I flew 16 hours and then drive another 12 hours to get here. At the camp, I sleep in a shed where the door does not close, swim in the Black Sea where the jellyfish are many, and the mosquitos are having a tough time finding a spot that hasn’t been bitten, including… More

Jul 10 Recurring Theme in Costa Rica

Costa Rica Team Member

Many of us could only dream of going on an Exposure Trip once in a lifetime; I have been blessed by God to go on to two Exposure Trips! While this is my second Exposure Trip, I was very nervous and excited to see what God was going to teach me. From the start of the trip, I could tell God was… More

Jul 10 Praying for 2 Million Souls in China

China Team Member

The pride I felt as I watched my son eating a chicken head was nothing compared to watching him lay hands on and pray for a man who has struggled with demonic possessions his entire life. Watching that same man, the one who would regularly throw himself into the fire as a boy, watching him put… More

Jul 9 Caring for Orphans in Ukraine

Ukraine Team Member

This is my first international missions trip, a.k.a. Exposure Trip, which perfectly describes what this has been for me! e These Ukrainian orphans have crammed housing spaces, PVC pipe portable showers, and hole-in-the-ground toilets without any form of soap. I always knew orphans existed and that… More
