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 2019 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 2019 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

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

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 2019 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

After over 24 hours and 8,000 miles of travel, we finally arrived at our first destination of ministry in China! One of our big highlights today was meeting three of the local church leaders we’ll be partnering with this week. I can’t share any pictures of them, or their names, or even the… More

Jul 4 2019 Happy 4th of July From the Ukraine Team

Missions Team

During this Exposure Trip, I had been praying that God would open my eyes to the things that I don’t see and that He would break my heart for what breaks His. This morning God really did. As we were doing morning exercises with all the kids, I couldn’t help but notice a few little guys in the… More
