Let me give you a few highlights from the past few weeks. I’m in Thailand (which means about 80-90 degree temp change;) at our annual retreat with all the CT as well as Target folks (most of these long-termers from our parent org work with UPG’s, or Unreached People Groups in Asia). It’s been an [...]

Runnin’ Strong I’m currently racking my brain for what occurred before our time in Thailand … It’s fuzzy, but it’s coming back to me now. The day before we left for Bangkok, I kept a busy schedule: I met with a friend to discuss what God put on her heart about reaching prostitutes in the [...]
“Why are people standing outside and not going in?” I said as I neared my apartment. I looked inside and saw at least 30 Asian students already packed into my little apartment for a Christmas party. In total I think we squeezed about 45 people in. It was fun, we sang some songs, decorated cookies [...]
My buddy Frankie got saved! It was absolutely amazing. There were two short-term guys staying at my place getting the Asia experience so they came with me to meet with Frankie on that day. It was really great to see how God has really touched his heart since I first met him not so long ago. When we first met, Frankie was a Buddhist. Not only was he that, but he was very quick to mention this and let me know that he defined himself as such
Just wanted to let ya’ll know that our candy outreach activity went AMAZING! Here are some highlights: 1. We divided up into two groups, and split up to cover more area.

We stopped and sat down in some grass and talked. Atlas shared his own testimony and I told her how God had been providing for me in so many areas in my life.

decided to become a Christian right then and there! So amazing. Tea, whom we had only met for the second time, is now a citizen of
What is it that makes living for God so special? Well for me, it’s that you just never know what is going to happen next.
Have you ever stumbled on an idea that’s so good, so exciting, and makes so much sense that you can’t help but wonder, “Why haven’t I ever done this before?” Recently, my sister and friend Amy shared her personal testimony at our Christmas party. In it, she had mentioned the significance of seeing Christians [...]

Finals are over! Wooh Hooh! We made it! The five of us successfully completed our first semester enrolled in a University! Looking back to four and a half months ago, I couldn’t even read an entire sentence in the local language. And now, wow, the progress that I have made is truly a gift. It’s [...]
