Helping People is Hard

One thing I've realized, and come to embrace this month, is that helping people isn't easy.  It started with a one night stay in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras.  The extremely generous man who let us stay with him, Aven, has a ministry in Tegucigalpa that works with street kids.  Basically, he talks to them, feeds them, tries to give them opportunities, ect.  He was telling us about his work.  He had some really cool stories but he said his favorite was one of the

Get Your Bibles Out

My thoughts today mainly consisted of the Yezidi and Christian women and children that are being displaced by ISIS. Girls as young as 9 years of age being sold for $170 to these ISIS pigs. They are being beaten and forced into sex slavery and then having an operation to “”restore” her virginity” for their next owner. What kind of person does such a thing? ISIS legitimately believe that they have a religious right to take these “Infidel” little girls as sexua

The day I declared love for myself!

So last month in Vietnam I wrote this in a message to a friend about the day I shared in ministry with two teammates and by the end of the day was shocked bc I openly came to a point where I confessed the love that I have for myself and by how amazing God is! April 7 2015 … Josh Rick and I have been talking about how we all feel like this month will be a BIG month for growth and we are trying to SEE God in all that we do. So yesterday we got to see what growth looked like with gardenin

Get up and Run

During my time in the Army I did alot of running, you kind of had too. Especially in my job as a Infantry man. When other men's life's are in your hands you can't afford to not be in shape. When I got out of the Army I broke my leg and used that as a excuse  not to run after it healed, because I was starting back at square one and I was too lazy to start over. Then I came on The World Race and was blessed to have some amazing women on my squad that love to run and pushed me to run as well.

Let’s Get Creative With Pentecost.

How are you planning to celebrate Pentecost his year?   I mentioned yesterday that one of my concerns about this celebration is that often everything happens inside the church. As the Holy Spirit fell on the disciples, the barriers of language and culture were broken down – not so that everyone thought and looked the […]

I Am God's Mouthpiece

I have discovered something about myself. I love going to church in Spanish. I mean, obviously I have a passion for the language (Why else would I be on the All-Spanish Route?), but there's just something special about a Spanish-speaking church. It's like every time I walk through the doors for a service, God transcends the little English box I tend to keep Him in, and I get to see how His Church reaches further than I could ever imagine. This isn't exactly a new idea for me, though. I'd say it

I Won't Miss the Real Thing

I absolutely love weddings. No, I’ve got to be honest here: I cry during weddings. Like a blubbering babe. I love weddings so much because like invitations to another ceremony, they point so powerfully beyond themselves to eternity—to the marriage of Christ and His bride, the Church. One of the things I knew I’d be surrendering to the Lord as I committed to the Race was missing the weddings of three of my best friends—Taylor Klopatek (today), Tyler Weavers (June), and

Spend a Day With ME!

16,273.00. That is a lot of money right there. It is a staggering price for a mission trip. I know you are all thinking it. I was thinking it too, until I learned what all the money for this trip is going towards. This money covers most of my expenses for close to a year! It includes: 

Plane Tickets: Plane tickets to and from 3 different continents!  

Other Transportation costs: I can't tell you what that is going to be. But I am sure it will include tra
