October 10th marked the one year anniversary of our mission team moving to Haiti and beginning mission here at the John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization! I can’t believe it has been a year, but I am blessed and encouraged by all that God has done in these […]
“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few. . .” This is the beginning of one of my favorite scriptures. Even though I love this scripture, it can also be difficult and challenging. It saddens me because I have seen the reality that the “laborers for the harvest” (Christians […]
A couple weeks ago, I found out something difficult about one of our teenagers. It is a problem that you would not often find in America, but one that I suspect is common here in Haiti. One of the teens that comes to our mission base almost every day, Taina […]
Being a missionary is hard. Actually, just being a Christian is hard. I feel like I should understand that by now. But even though I have been following the Lord for a little while, I am still surprised when struggles come along. I think, “Why, Lord? When will this end? […]

I was running today – huffing and puffing up and down hills, past people and their dogs, with a dry mouth, looking awkward and wishing that I still lived in Florida where I could run on flat ground. I don’t run because I’m great at it. It takes me about […]
Lately, I have had the desire to run all over the world on mission and bring Jesus to people who may have never heard His name. In my imagination, lots of people would be converted, I would be a saint, and the Church would be renewed. Huge, glorious, wonderful things […]
