Your Heart is Sacred

    God is on a hunt. He’s not concerned with your ability to follow rules or regulations. He doesn’t care about the way that you dress or how many people think you’re great. He doesn’t want your money, your works, your fame or anything you build with your hands to prove yourself.   He wants your heart.   So many of us are hiding inside of ourselves. We have great boundaries. We have great friendships.. but when we sleep and receed into the depth

Never Satisfied

         I have somewhat of a sickness. Yesterday I woke up at 2:50 A.M. to run 26.2 miles. No, I am not a paid athlete. My income is not based on my performance. The fact that I willingly run these distances and I pay good amounts of money to put my body through pain and suffering makes me some type of nut job. I wake up at ungodly hours to train and it is hard for me to explain why. I am a running addict. Many people think I am crazy and I confess it does tak

My Team

"Devon Kester!"  I heard chanted loudly from one of the group of leaders in front of me. All of the sudden I was in a dark tunnel and my walk from where I was standing to the person who had called my name seemed like miles long. It was hot and the sun was beating down on the pine-straw below me. The brown straws shifted as I walked. They existed like lifeless corpses just to provide an illusion and expectation of soft ground. "Don't have any expectations." I remember Adventur

A Story Worth Telling

    Today we were escorted by our hosts around Cape Town. We saw Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for many years. We drove around Table Mountain, one of the great wonders of the world. We visited a vintage craft market to see and buy beautiful African art, jewelry, and clothing pieces from local artists. We gazed in amazement at a spectacular sunset over Sunset Beach. All in all, We experienced a wonderful day of great company and sight seeing in beautiful South Afri

The day I prayed for rain to stop....

In Nepal, it is monsoon season. For those who don't receive much rain, it means it rains EVERYday several times a day or all day. Most of the time we are prepared with rain jackets or inside when the rain hits. 

One day we were interceding at a Hindu temple when the rain started. It rained for awhile so we prayed some more and heard more of our translators testimony. Finally, it was getting close to time for children's ministry; our translator suggested we pray for the rain to ST

Faithful in prayer


A lot of our time here is spent in prayer. We pray for the Hindu communities, the Buddhist areas, the valley, healing for people in the church and like you read in my last blog, for it to stop raining.

I do not think I have ever prayed so much in my life. We often pray 'Nepali' style or what some call warrior prayer: everyone prays out-loud at the same time. I listen to the Nepali people around me and am astounded at their prayers. I can't understand them, but I can feel


Albania, is a beautiful country. It took us 21 hours to get to Tirana the capital city. We left Romania bright and early Tuesday July 1 st around 5 am. As we drove through the country side we passed out of Romania, into Bulgaria, then into Serbia, then to Macedonia where we winded between and through the mountains that cover the country to finally enter Albania, where we continued through mountains for a couple hours.We finally reached the capital city of Tirana at 2:30 am. 2 am where our driver

MSA Is A Happening Place

MSA Is A Happening Place There is so much happening at Mustard Seed Associates at the moment that it is hard to keep track. This is turning into a very busy but fulfilling season and I thought you might appreciate knowing about some of the things that keep me busy. Last week I sat at my(...)

The Night

  It was a quiet room, but so loud. I sat with two of my best friends on the race, Lindsey and Patrick, and we talked. We shared stories of our month and how God had changed us so much. Tears flowed from my eyes speaking of the kids and the relationships that were formed. We watched the video I made and the video Patrick made. It was such a needed time with friends. Even now, words fail to explain that night and that moment.   We ended our night in the dark hallway praying for India

An Update of Sorts

Aforementioned, training camp is where you get to put faces to Facebook pictures, and to get to know the people on your squad. To fill you in more on the terminology, your squad consists of all the racers going on the same route. We may not necessarily be in the same location together, but we will be in the same country. I'm blessed to be a part of 3rd generation iSquad! iSquad is made up of some pretty amazing people from all over the United States and Canada. There are about 40 racers, and we
