I Choose to Trust – One Year in Haiti

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 past twelve months. I have […]

Will Work For Free

The first real, check-paying job I had as a teen was babysitting in the childcare area of a Jazzercise center. I watched Finding Nemo on repeat while moms (and the occasional dad) sweat it out next door to pop music. The work wasn’t especially difficult and the money was good. Really good. I loved that job, […]

Mission Glasgow

IDENTITY CONFIRM…. Just receive an Intel about a missionary that will be off the grid of Atlanta for 168 hours. About over a year ago on October 2011, we believe a parish in the country of United State of America has adopted one of our Life Teen missionaries. Evidence have confirm that the youth minister […]

God is Faithful (Part 2)

My missionary formation year at Covecrest (in Tiger, Georgia) was the greatest year of my life. And although I was hesitant to go because of my desire to only serve in Haiti, I can now say that full-time missions in Haiti would not be possible without the formation, healing, rhythm of prayer, and community that […]

Trusting in God’s Promises

Do you ever question God or fail to trust Him completely? I wish I could say that I don’t, but even as a missionary, I’m still human, and I still question God sometimes… A little over a month ago, Life Teen started a new mission base in Houston, Texas, and I am one of five […]

My Way or the Lord’s Way?

I wish the Lord would just come out and blatantly shout out to me what it is that He wants me to do. I’m sure I’m not the only one that would really appreciate something like that. Coming into this mission year here at Covecrest, I was thinking that it was going to be a […]

Does Ketchup Make an Elephant Taste Better?

By: Chuck Taylor Okay, we’ve heard this before, right? “How do you eat an elephant?” “One bite at a time” is the age-old answer. It is this rather worn out illustration, though, that has been my view of Life Teen Mission –Germany. This coming Wednesday will mark only our first month in Germany, yet I […]

An Invitation To Serve: Life Teen Ghana Mission 2012

“They left everything and followed Him.” Luke 5:11 The first time we went to Ghana, I met a young girl named Rosemary. She was very shy at first and kept her distance. When she would see us come back each day from the village, she would sheepishly wave and then run back to her house. Her little […]

One Church

I believe in the Catholic Church. I believe it what it means to be truly “catholic”.  In fact, as I say every week in Mass, I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. I don’t think I ever really understood what it meant for the Church to be one until I went on foreign […]

Come Together – Haiti Mission 2011!

Two weeks ago, I went on a mission trip to Haiti with thirteen other missionaries, most of whom I live with here at Covecrest. It was an incredibly blessed trip from start to finish! As I started writing this blog, I was listening to a song written by Michael W. Smith shortly after the earthquake […]
