    I’m finally sitting down to write a post-trip update.  My last update was the night before the last day of the retreat.  On that final day I ended up getting a solid half-day of work in and was well enough rested to give me energy for not only the mo...

Mission Trips

  • What a journey. I can not believe the week is almost over. It’s been a very busy week. Very hard to find quiet time to write. I came on this journey not knowing what to expect other than new emotions.  I signed up for the trip not knowing what conditions would be like or really even where I was going except that it was Africa. Â God clearly told me to go and I could not turn back.

    I have been going through the week wondering when the emotions would set in. Well I have my answer.  Today, Friday, our third day of service was the day the tears came. The day started off as normal.  Breakfast at 7 ...

  • To be honest, the first couple of days we were here, I was really having a hard time. I was ready to go home. Â I was tired and I wanted to drink clean water without all the bottled water issues. But then meeting and talking to the missionary family’s and seeing how much they gave up to share the Gospel here has been eye opening for me.

  • In my brief time here, I’ve observed that this part of Africa is a bit of a puzzle. I’ve seen beautiful tea plantations just a few minutes from a slum. Unattractive walls built from concrete blocks and razor wire attempt to conceal the beauty of colorful and lush plants. It’s a picture of what’s going on here. I’ve met people who are busy working to loosen the grip of darkness on this part of the world–and we know they don’t work in vain.  It’s been a blessing to get a bigger picture of God’s kingdom.

  • It's Wednesday night and we are at Brackenhurst. We left Hibiscus this morning after breakfast and got here in time for lunch. It feels very much like when I was a girl and every summer I would go to Camp Wintaka that feeling of excitement when you see the first sign of camp, and then the bus turns down the lane that leads to camp, and then you drive through the gates! Yea!

    In case you don't know, this is my fourth year at SIM-SLC. I have seen many old friends and have met a few new ones, too. It is so good to reconnect, especially with the women that I have gotten to know over the years. Sand...
