Life as a Missionary

I really wish I could sit here and tell you that living a life as a missionary is pretty simple, but the reality of it is that not everybody can do this.  Not everybody is willing to give up their comforts of life and walk by faith into the unknown, having to fully trust God…

Not “I” But “US”

Trust Him Always

When I read the book of Acts, I get a taste of an amazing church that worked together to further the Kingdom of God through everything that they had.  If one person was on hard times, another would sell their possessions to help out.  If a person was looking for a place to stay they…
