As missionaries, we often talk about the Scripture verse Acts 4:20: “It is impossible for us not to speak about what we have seen and heard.” The Apostles said this boldly as the rulers and elders told them not to speak or teach about Jesus. They were confident about who […]
Easter day seemed a little more special for me this year. I’m not entirely sure why, but I think it’s mostly because of the ways that I’ve drawn closer to the Lord this year as a missionary, especially in prayer. It hasn’t been the easiest year of my life, but […]
God speaks clearly. Does He really? Just last night I had a conversation with one of my missionary sisters about this. We talked about how sometimes we wish that God would just speak more clearly: that He would tell us exactly what He wants of us, what He’s calling us […]
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 not perfect. Surprising? No, but it’s not generally something I love to go around telling every person I meet. As Life Teen missionaries, an image we commonly use is that living in community is like holding up a mirror to all of our faults. As we live and pray […]

As I mentioned before, part of our outreach to the local community is running the youth groups at the two local parishes: St. Helena’s and St. Mark’s. When the missionaries returned from Christmas break, we had to create the schedule of topics for St. Mark’s youth group: every Sunday night […]
Last week, I really felt in prayer that God was telling me, “Behold, I make all things new” (Revelation 21:5). Since then, He has really shown me the truth of this statement in a number of ways. The first and most tangible way came in the form of snow – […]
I think it’s been a few years since I’ve climbed a tree, but it’s something that I definitely enjoyed as a kid. I can remember specific instances were I climbed a tree to put up Christmas lights with my dad and the fun I had climbing a particular tree at […]
In addition to serving at Covecrest, the missionaries and staff are also involved in outreach to the local community. This year, we are helping to coordinate youth groups for the two local Catholic parishes: St. Helena and St. Mark. Last Sunday, the topic for Life Night at St. Mark’s was […]
