Life in Croatia

Posted on

After coming back from Croatia, the Lord had me in California for over a year.  I’d like to say that the past year was easy and that I loved every second of it but I cant. This past year has been one of crying my heart out to the Lord, questioning His timing, and being […]

Voice of Refugees

Posted on

For the past couple of months, I’ve been asking the Lord to give me a passion to share the Gospel with those who are lost. Though I grew up in the church I never felt like I had sufficient training in the Word of God to share with those who knew nothing about the Bible. […]

His Grace Is Never Ending

Posted on

Have you ever been so overwhelmed that all you wanted to do was escape? For me, the month of June was exactly that. Hence, the reason my June update is going out in July. This past month has been one of those months I thought I wasn’t going to make it through. It started with […]

Becoming More Like Him

Posted on

Have you ever asked the Lord to make you more like Him? It’s a petition that I’ve prayed for over and over again. To be made more like Christ in every way. Yet, I’ve come to the realization that in being made more like Him, there will be times of pain and sorrow. You see […]

A Heart for Croatia

Posted on

Many people, when I first mention Croatia, tend to give me a puzzled look.  “Croatia?” they ask. I’ve had many people say, ‘Oh, the cruise that I took there was beautiful,” or they list the touristy cities in Croatia, which I have never been to or even knew existed. I smile at their comments and […]

He’s in the Waiting

Posted on

The Waiting Period. Also known as the most difficult season in my book. The anticipation of being sent out. The eagerness to get where you’re going. The longing to be where you know the Lord has called you. The yearning, the tears, the prayers that are lifted up, the crying out to God. I wish […]

A Day in a Roma Village

Posted on

I’ve had a lot of people ask recently what a Roma village is and what takes place in the village. Many people when I say that I’ll be working with gypsy’s (otherwise known as Roma), they ask me one question: “Are they like that show on TLC, you know the gypsy one?” I chuckle because […]

What’s Next?

Posted on

Since coming back home in December, the number one question that I’ve been asked is “What’s next?”  Two words, which for me at the time, were filled with so much uncertainty. I didn’t know what came next. I didn’t even know where to begin. One thing I’ve realized over the past couple of months is that I’m […]

Inadequacy

Posted on

I’ve talked to a lot of people back home recently and the number one question is ‘How’s it going?’ My initial response is always ‘good.’ However, the truth is most of my time here I feel completely inadequate. Inadequate (adj): lacking the quality or quantity required; insufficient for a purpose. The honest truth is that there […]
