Meditation Monday – Say Yes To What is Life Giving

by Christine Sine

Last week I talked about Canadian thanksgiving and my usual practice of starting Advent a week early with a time of gratitude. This week I realized that I don’t just want a week of gratitude, I want a whole season. Canadian and American Thanksgiving frame this beautifully for me.

Hopped off the plane in Johannesburg with my pack and my mandolin.

Hello all!! It’s been a while, but with limited WiFi and zero service it’s been pretty hard to post. Thanks to the Lord’s unfailing provision and my supporters generosity, I am in Nsoko, Swaziland. It has been wonderful!!! Here’s a little insight on my race so far, because in just a month I already have so many amazing things to share. So, here are some of the many good times I’ve had since I left home. Last lunch in the US of A with my dawgz. (Yea of course it was

When I'm unfaithful, God is always faithful

Part one of a two part blog... It's a good one, don't let the my long-winded posts turn you away!   God preformed a miracle in a Starbucks. The same Starbucks my squad and I visited daily for two weeks while in Lima, Perú. Every day we were greeted by the same sweet smiles of these familiar baristas. 30 gringos can be overwhelming but they tried their very best to speak english and even had immense patience for our not-so-great spanish (taking ownership for this one). I

Month 1: PHILIPPINES

I just wanted to give you an update on where me and my team are and what the Lord has put on my heart. We made it safely on Thursday to Manila, which is the capital of the Philippines. We are so blessed to have such an amazing place to stay for our first month of ministry. While we are here we will be working with Kids International Ministries also known as KIM. Some of the needs here at KIM include: Working at the children’s home- While the children are in school we have the opportunity

When money doesnt matter

Ok. Money is a big deal. But what happens when people act like it isnt in order that you have what you need? . When i started off to leave for the race i had no money.I left for the airport and my aunt stuffed 120 bucks in my pocket and thats what i had for the race. Disclaimer:«beside $500 in my account that wasnt supposed to be spent on anything less than for an emergency if and in case anything happened!» For off days, for treating myself, for buying souvenires (i decided i

Comparison is a Thief of Identity

For the past week, I have been in Baños, Ecuador for a squad debrief of month one of our race. During this time, we have rested, adventured, discussed, processed, and learned. Something that really resonated with me was a teaching on comparison. This lesson was based around scripture that pretty much blew my mind.  14 “Even so, the body is not made up of one part but of many.15 Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,&r

Yellow Daffodils

Daffodils represent forgiveness, new beginnings and a rebirth. Daffodils are grown from bulbs and readily return each spring, signifying the end of winter and a new season beginning. They also represent happiness and are meant to be given in a bouquet, as giving a single daffodil denotes misfortune. To tell someone "I'm sorry" or "Please forgive me," give them a bouquet of daffodils. In doing so, you are telling them that you wish to put away the past and begin a new season that is full of happi

Just one of my cool squadmates :)

This is Victoria.  She walks in wisdom and confidence in who she is and who the Father has made her to be. Every time she speaks, she teaches me something new. She is just one of those people you want to be around. She has the best laugh. She is joyful and pursues others around her the way the Father pursues her. She has shown me so much love since being on the Race. I am so grateful I get to call her a friend, but also a sister.  I asked her if we could sit down and just talk abou

OFF WE GO! Colombia

HI!! I was finally able to get WiFi! This is the 5th day of ministry but these were my thoughts from the airport before arriving in Colombia.   Have you ever gone on a trip or done something that made your stomach have these tight, excited, butterfly knots that leave you feeling who knows what way? Have you ever anticipated something for so long that once you finally get there you can’t really believe it’s true? That’s where I’m at. For the PAST 11 mont

Finding a Balance in the Busyness

This season of my life consists of a lot of waiting, which I am very thankful for. I am not in school right now and I don’t leave on my trip until the end of January. In some ways it feels like my real life has been put on hold as I watch my friends experience their first year of college. I don’t mind postponing the life of dorm rooms, dining hall food, and stressing over midterms. In a lot of ways I am relieved to get this very long break from school, and it has made me genuinely mo
