Fearless Victory

Victory: A superior position achieved against any opponent, opposition, or difficulty. A triumph; the ultimate decisive superiority in any battle or contest. That is the definition of victory, and I’ll tell ya: I get so pumped up just reading that little blurb. Why? Because we’re all a part of the most important victory of all […]

Clinging to Jesus

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? Is it ever going to […]

Working For A Living

One of my favorite parts about life as a missionary is doing work projects. In work projects, we get to build, fix, and maintain this beautiful camp we call home. I’ve always loved getting dirty and using my hands whether it be through sports or hard work. So every Tuesday when we get ready for a day […]

These Boots Weren’t Made for Walking!

Before you read any further, you have to know something about me. In the past four years, I have fallen in love with boots. I generally don’t like shoes but I would wear boots all day, everyday. They are just confortable, and easy to wear and they match almost anything! In fact, within two weeks […]

Praying with Coffee

I enjoy a good cup of coffee – even though it’s more like milk with coffee. Every morning, I wake up at 6:30am and start that coffee maker! There’s a “mysterious” ingredient in coffee that gives me the energy I need to get through my day without falling asleep during prayer or even getting tired. […]

“Behold Your Mother” – John 19:26-27

“The Virgin Mary. . . is acknowledged and honored as being truly the Mother of God and of the redeemer. . . She is ‘clearly the mother of the members of Christ’ . . .” – CCC 963 I have recently recommitted for about the 20th time in my journey with Christ to pray a […]

Beaten and Tortured

From now on, when I hear about Jesus’ death, whether it’s someone talking about it, during mass, or while reading scripture, I want to pause and really reflect on what that means for me. I want to take it more seriously, to be moved with pity for those who took part in crucifying Jesus, and to realize how much I am loved. Jesus would have done what He did if you and I were the only people on earth. He even did it for those who killed Him!

The Giant Present From God

By: Chuck Taylor During Jesus’s life here on earth, the center of the Jewish faith was the temple in Jerusalem. The temple was on a hill in the center of the city. In the middle of the temple was an even more special place, the Holy of Holies: the place where God lived. The Holy […]

“I thirst for you!”

Well, hello! First, let me introduce myself. My name is Elske Antonissen. I’m 26 years old and I’m from the Netherlands, sometimes better known as Holland. I came here last week to be a Covecrest missionary in Tiger, Georgia, for a whole year. It’s unbelievable to be here, in this heavenly place, full of love […]
