92%

You know when you are downloading an app or updating your phone and the status bar slowly climbs until it reaches the 90s then it stops... Well that is what it has felt like trying to fund raise from the field for these past 7 months. Those long periods of waiting and praying just to get 1% more. It takes a lot to be grateful for that 1%, especially when there is a larger percentage to raise. One of the hardest lessons I have had to learn on the race is never to get involved in a land war in

Exposure - Guest Blog

Hey friends and family!   I know that we have been pretty quiet on here. There are no excuses really... we are just tired, and always on the go in ministry or travel it seems.    Since we last updated, we are far over half way done with the race. We only have 3 and a half more months! Which is crazy to think about!   In Bosnia and Kosovo, we went through what they call the "halfway slump", which is where this life has become all too normal! The honeymoon stage is l

Spain: "Buen Camino"

I've started typing about 20 different things trying to figure out what I wanted to share with you about our journey so far. An experience that, try as I might, I don't know if I can communicate without just saying "come with me!". El Camino de Santiago has a culture of it's own. When you step foot on this terrestrially diverse trail, marked with yellow arrows, shells, and fellow pilgrims, you're entering a community. A community marked by amicability, respect, generosity and a general sense of

Up a Level

Once again, I am a little late writing this blog post. Training camp was over a month ago, and I was so set on cranking another post out within a week of it ending. As you can see, that didn’t happen...but I like to believe that the Lord has the best timing.  On July 10thI headed to Gainesville, Georgia for training camp. I could write a whole post about my daily life there, or what it was like to take bucket showers and eat crazy food for 10 days. But honestly, I would rather write

Are you even making a difference?

“How can you make an impact if you’re only at a place for a short period of time?” Is the question often heard amongst World racers and or other short-term mission volunteers. If I’m to be honest, it was a question that was on my mind and my heart at the beginning of this thing. It is now month 8 of 11 of the world race and here I am in the middle of a small village somewhere in Cambodia. Surrounded by rice fields, coconut trees, dirt roads, cows, chickens, and a populat

Ethiopia: My Hardest Goodbye Yet

  I was not expecting to love Ethiopia so much, but it has captured my heart forever. We made such good friends and experienced amazing things as a team. It wasn't all a breeze - our squad went through some challenges, there was civil unrest that one of our teams was caught up in, housing was difficult to procure, etc. - and as a squad leader team, we had to make some hard decisions and really bind together to work for the good of our squad. Despite these challenges, we were blessed to

Where Asian American Pastors Gather Together

I believe in the value of gathering pastors and leaders gathering together for robust discussions, the iron sharpening iron kind of dialogue.

There is some value in sharing a meal for fellowship and encouragement. In many localities, cities or regions, I’ve participated in and have known of pastor’s fellowships that met monthly or quarterly.

I don’t have a list or calendar of where and when these groups meetup currently. Previous groups have connected in cities like Washington DC, New York City, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles; maybe Seattle, Dallas, Houston. This is very doable, really, just 2 or 3 can gather, Jesus in the midst, and invite a couple of others, and then meet regularly.

Video Blog #8 - Month 7 in India

Video blog number 8 is uploaded and it's maybe my favourite video yet :)     https://youtu.be/qIx2A265Xfg    Love, Chloe xo

discovery of language

Eve stared at the tree again. Rubbed her eyes, and then with trembling fingers reached out and took hold of the fruit. Had it been like this before? Had it been...so...? The skin was shriveled and soft, (covered by black tundra so fine it was like black powder that fell on her skin in alarming patterns of spot and hair, so that her mere touch made it peel away from the flesh which was almost liquid beneath. It smelled of something that choked off her breath when it presented itself to the

Jaco, CR Ministry Update

God sure knew what He was doing when He asked me to stay in Jaco, Costa Rica! I couldn't have chosen a better place to end the race. Much of my race has looked like street evangelism, kids ministry, preaching, teaching,  etc... As fun as all that is, I really just wanted a good month of practical work  where I could get my hands dirty and sweat a little. Oceans Edge ministry came through with that and so much more. A normal day runs at about 85 degrees with 85% humidity, so the swea

Answers to the Questions

Here are the questions YOU all asked as well as my answers to said questions.   Are you glad it is almost over? Yes, I am glad it is almost over. I have definitely enjoyed the last 11 months and have learned so much in this time, but sometimes it’s good to have things come to an end. It is bittersweet, but it’s also time for the next step in life.   What one thing will most likely have the most impact on your life?          

11 things I learned in 11 months

Hi everyone! This will be my last blog of the World Race. It is, as the title suggests, 11 things I have learned these past 11 months. It's a mix of serious and funny; Enjoy!  1. I’m an extrovert Apparently I’m the only one who didn’t know this about me. I gravitate towards people, whether we are in conversation or not, because I like company. I’ve really not had the chance to be wholly and truly alone this past year. I have be with at least one other person when I

Hotel Transylvania

And just like that we’re on to the next location; Romania. Part of the Balkans and Transylvania it’s famous for being the home country of Dracula’s castle so that’s pretty interesting! We’re not really staying at a hotel here in Transylvania but it feels a bit like it; we’re paired up with another world race team this month and all 12 of us are sleeping on the floor of our hosts church. Our hosts, a married couple Christian and Cami are amazing! They started

" Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" - 2 Corinthians 5:17

Hello to my dearest friends and family! As some of you might already know, I recently made the decision to embark on a spiritual journey across the world for 11 months, where my team and I will serve daily at the hands and feet of Christ! We will be travelling to Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Morocco, Ethiopia, Djibouti, India, Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, and Indonesia, serving in each country for one month each. I will be the first to say that I NEVER anticipated God would lead me into depth
