Nerf guns for breakfast

About two weeks ago all of the Area Contacts for Life Teen came to Covecrest for their annual retreat. I was excited for the weekend because we were going to be eating really good food, sleep in, and my youth minister was coming, triple bonus. I was on breakfast duty one day during the week […]

Palm Sunday: Haitian Style!

 All of the missionaries at Covecrest were blessed with the opportunity to go to Haiti. We spent the week about 60 miles southwest of Port Au Prince at an orphanage run by a Catholic organization called Moving with the Spirit. One of the biggest blessings from the trip was being able to spend Palm Sunday […]

Your life belongs to God!

It’s funny how much your life can change in a year, a month, a week, or even a day. If you told me a year ago that I’d be a missionary this year I probably would’ve laughed in your face. I knew I wanted to eventually go into missions but I was going to do […]

Being a Christian is NOT safe!

I’m afraid of very few things in this world; but, the one thing that I seem to fear above all else is becoming the person who God is calling me to be. I fear this so much because I have no idea what God will call me to do next. Becoming this person isn’t safe, […]

God is Here!

Mass is a big part of missionary life! We try to go to Mass as much as possible. Here in Germany, that’s not always easy. We live in a small village on the German/Dutch border and there’s only one church in each village. These churches might have Mass once a week, if they’re lucky. Oftentimes, they’ll have […]

“Reach for the Sky!”

Earlier today I went to a shopping plaza in another village with the rest of my missionary brothers and sisters. We had a few things that we all had to get and since I didn’t need anything I thought I’d accompany my missionary sister Pam as she went store to store getting her various needs. […]

You’re Going to Meet My Mother!

Last week, I was kind of frustrated, so I decided to take a bike ride. I was riding around for a little bit, when I remembered seeing this old chapel that I wanted to check out. This chapel is from the 1800’s and sits in the middle of a wide open field, between three trees, […]

God talks to me through Disney Movies and Superheroes, say what?

This past Monday, the Life Teen Covecrest and Atlanta communities came together for a day of prayer to discern the Lord’s will for the future of the three Life Teen mission bases.  We spent about eight hours in prayer, stopping only to eat lunch and take pictures for our blogs. We started the day off […]

Peanut Butter, Dance Parties, Sardines, Oh My!

Missionary blogs are supposed to be a place where the missionaries can share with everyone what’s going on in their lives and how the Lord is moving in their hearts. Well, a random fun fact about me is that I can only do so much sharing about the seriousness of my heart before my heart […]
