Prayer Works.

For the past three months, I lived at a Life Teen camp in Arizona called Camp Tepeyac. I was the prayer coordinator. That meant that for six weeks my role was to simply pray, pray for camp. When the power went out, my role was to pray. To pray that […]

Fleeing from Fear

I’m afraid of walking past where the bear lives at summer camp. I’m afraid of walking anywhere in the dark. I’m afraid of never finding my vocation. I’m afraid of white water rafting. I’m afraid of large quantities of mayonnaise and sliced yellow cheese. So what do I do to […]

Summer Cleaning

Summer’s here! You know what that means? Ice cream, baseball games, trips to the beach and…cleaning. Okay, maybe that last one’s not on your summer list, but as a missionary, it’s definitely been on mine. I am serving at a Life Teen Camp in Arizona, Camp Tepeyac. Campers don’t actually […]

Ache Like Christ

Jesus loves us. I hope that’s not new information to you. He loves us immensely. The cross, we know as Christians, is the greatest act of love in history. I think a lot of people get lost thinking they have to love Christ back in some huge way. All He really […]

The War

I had a dream a few nights ago that was so vivid and terrifying it ingrained itself in my heart and it breaks because of it. In this dream I was looking at this screen of a computer and I could see people from all over watching the same thing. On screen […]

I’m Sinking

Do you ever feel like you’re sinking and can’t rise to the surface? I know I do, and I was praying about Gods help in these times. I really got to think about it, and I think I get it now. We’re sunk into our troubles, doubts, fears, and sins. […]

The Blessed Life

There’s the good life, the rich life, a bad life, heck even that show “The Buried Life”; but I’ve found one even better. It’s the blessed life. A life so beautifully sweet, I kneel at the ground of Christ’s saving feet. A life so simple, it has let me realize […]

Finding Peace in the Dark

Imagine one day, you’re doing great. Nothing could be better. Maybe you’re chillin with friends, catching some waves, or teaching teens how to climb things. It’s going great until you are told something that fills you with doubt, fear, and sorrow. Finding your fears to be true, feeling like your […]

Spirit Break Out

Last week we were all out together playing a game of soccer. Before I go much further, know that I’m not very good at soccer, but I love defense. No matter the sport, put me on defense, and I’m good to go. So automatically, I stayed back and waited for […]

No Place Like Home

I miss home. I miss sleeping in my room on Long Island. I haven’t been there since January and I won’t return until half way through August. I miss hearing my sister’s crazy music blasting from her room. I miss the air compressor going on and off in my dad’s […]
