a new beginning

IM BACK!!  Never in my wildest dreams did i believe that i would be back blogging about another global journey trip.  It is truly the will of the Lord that I am back here once again.

Last summer my perspective on life and others cultures was radically changed as I came to encounter many people from all areas of life.  We traveled to China, India, Uganda, France, and Costa Rica.  It was a summer of growth, intimacy with Jesus, and adventure.  I learned much about how BIG our God is.  Jesus has a global purpose and when we talk about how He has a plan for our lives we are by no means incorrect but what is even more exciting is contemplating how he has a plan for the entire earth.  He is working out our lives to be just one part of the massive plan to bring about his glory unto all the nations.

Psalm 46:10-11 says,

Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

I have been learning that he delights in us taking a break from the business of life and learning against Him to rest; however, the point of these verses is to exclaim the fame of the Lord Almighty!  He is might to be praised!  Not only here but all over the world!  Modern christianity has taken away the best part of this verse and that is the praising of the Lord to the ends of the earth.

I am excited to be learning as I travel with a team of 10.  It will be an eye opening experience to be in a leadership position co-leading with Sarah Rinn.  I know that without the Lord guiding me I will fall flat on my face but with Him the possibilities are limitless.

God will do some big things this summer.  I am excited and expecting this because He has never let me down and he never gives up on us.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
(Romans 1:16-17 ESV)

I need prayers this summer and would love to know to know you are praying for me if you decide to do so.  Thank you so much everyone who has supported me in the call so far.

Eternally His,
