I GIVE YOU MY PENNIES KNOWING THAT YOU CAN MAKE IT RAIN!

I’ve been a full time missionary going on three months now here at Covecrest, and I love it. Our time is filled with formation, prayers, and hosting and working retreats with an ultimate goal of furthering God’s kingdom in the ways we love, disciple, and live. If you noticed: none of those last three subjects are visible. Much like this mission here, I’m learning to walk by faith daily…

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!
