There are people in the world who haven’t heard of the name of Jesus. In fact, there are people in your schools, your towns, and your workplaces, even family members and friends who don’t know the love of Christ. Sure, going to a foreign country on mission is beautiful, but foreign mission isn’t everyone’s calling. Start being missionary today, wherever you are. Christ’s Church needs you. Lost souls need you.


I have finished my first two months of missions!

Let me tell you: it has been an experience unlike anything I could have ever imagined. Since day one, we’ve hit the ground running in our new lives as missionaries, which entailed most of our clothes to remain in our suitcases for a while. Not wasting a minute, we dove into formation and began what was to be our “normal” routine.

Soon I would realize that there is nothing very normal about being here…

Do You Love Me?

As I was in the process of discerning whether the Lord was calling me back to school to pursue a Master’s Degree or to become a full-time missionary with Life Teen, I traveled to West Palm Beach, Florida to visit my sister, my brother-in-law, and my precious niece and nephew. […]

Do You Want to Work for the Gospel?

“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 […]

Prayers of Insanity?

What’s insane? Missionaries. For the past month some of the male missionaries at Covecrest have been getting up early and working out with a program called Insanity. Now, when I say early I mean 5 in the morning. For a guy straight from the west coast who was used to getting home […]

Live Simply So Others May Simply Live

As missionaries have always tried to live simply, but as with anything, over time (especially while living in the U.S.) we become more and more comfortable, and it is easy to justify extras. Soon our conviction to live in solidarity with the poor is compromised by settling with a lifestyle that is just a little more simple than that of the others around us . . . not exactly the definition of Gospel poverty!

Blessed Am I Among Women: 2012 Life Teen Ghana Mission

So what have I learned? I have learned that the initial excitement and feeling of adventure of foreign missions has faded for me. But the good news is my intentions have been purified. I realized that a major motivation to go on foreign missions was selfishly motivated by what I got out of them. I now have a greater understanding of “It is better to give, than to receive.”

A Few Good Men For Ghana

This summer Life Teen Missionaries are going back to Ghana, Africa and we need a few good men.  We currently have filled all our slots for women, but we could still use a few more men.  We are looking for college aged students or recent grads who are looking to […]
