Training Camp: Am I a Special Snowflake?

"How was training camp?” Training camp was a lot of things. I met my squad, we worshipped together, we camped together, and we learned alongside each other. While camp was a radical experience I really want to share about a personal journey God took me on that week, it was the process of him pulling out a thorn I'd grown accustomed to, a change of heart. During camp we did a lot of self reflection as we learned from our speakers regarding topics including: the false self, forgiveness, ack

1. I Want To Tell A Story

I think that’s the main reason for me wanting to go on the World Race. I want to tell a story. I want to be able to share the things I do, see, and experience so vividly that it feels like you are right there alongside of me. When I feel the overwhelming anxiety of fundrasing blossom into the joy of meeting and exceeding my goals, I want you to experience with me. When I accept the fact that I cannot be the savior to every hurting person I meet, I want you to feel the same agony I feel, an

My ultimate goal

So training camp takes off in just 22 days. In order to be able to go on the World Race in January 2017, I need to attend training camp. In order to attend training camp, I need all of my gear and to be funded at $5,000. So far I only have 10% of my gear and I am funded at $190. I am not worried, nor do I feel discouraged. With God, nothing is impossible. If God wants me to go to training camp, I will go. If He doesn't, I won't. My ultimate goal isn't to be able to buy all of my gear and raise

not your average blog post

  I didn’t cry. While I was preparing for WR, I didn’t shed a single tear until the night before my launch when I said goodbye to my best friends. I was at peace. People would ask me all the time if I was nervous, and I was able to so truthfully tell them that, no I wasn’t nervous at all, just excited for the journey ahead. I had been preparing for months and months and months, so to be nervous seemed silly. I knew that this is where God was calling me, so if I was followi

God Can't Help Me

When your team spends 5 days around 41 teenagers, one of you is bound to get sick. I happened to be the chosen one this time around, and came out of camp week with a cold. It started out slow, but by the time I got to church Sunday night, I felt awful. I was waiting and waiting for the service to be over so I could go upstairs and lay down. Finally, the moment came and I was about to head up when the teenagers all invited us to go to City Center with them. I wanted to go so badly, but my body wa

Listening to the life of Jesus: Who Am I?

Andy Wade – Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you […]

WARNING: This blog will be lengthy. This blog will be graphic. This blog contains 13 months of the parts of my heart and journey I refused to share with all of you along the way. Reader's discretion is advised ;)      The excitement I had in my heart to step out into the unknown and trust the Lord in new ways was uncontrollable.
