Hey everyone; it’s been super crazy around here with camp getting under full swing, which explains my lack of blogging for a while! So a quick update and then it’s off to bed! Camp is going GREAT so far! Everything’s running more or less smoothly, the weather is nice (although […]
As I’ve spent the last couple days getting ready to fly out to Germany, it’s been difficult to suppress my very human reaction of fear. I found myself kneeling in Adoration a couple nights ago, thinking, “Oh, God, what am I getting myself into now?” I found myself questioning my […]
God has been moving in very powerful, very tangible ways the last couple of weeks. It’s almost unreal, actually; just when I start thinking that the Lord has stopped, He shows me that there is always more! Recently, I have been struggling with my identity; I realized I was buying […]

These last few days have been full of emotion for me; so much so that I feel a little drained, actually. Thankfully, the other missionaries have been very gracious and supportive during the multiple times I’ve cried over the course of this last week. I think they understand that part […]
Sometimes it’s the simplest things in life we forget about. But when God shows you that simple thing in a new light, it can make a huge difference in your walk to Him. God has really been re-revealing some things to me over the past couple days; things that are […]
So here’s what I’m discovering about missionary work: it involves doing a whole bunch of stuff that other people just don’t want to do, but is really necessary. If you’re ever wandering around Covecrest and you’re wondering who changes out the toilet paper, or who cleaned the sheets you’re sleeping […]
