The Itch


Exactly one week from this exact moment, I will be somewhere over the Atlantic. I have mixed emotions about this fact.  On one hand, I’m sad to be leaving Tanzania early.  The people who work for World Vision here are completely amazing.  I have felt so loved and cared for while I’ve been here, and […]

On Being Single: Part Doi (that’s 2 in Romanian)


My last post on singleness got a huge response.  A lot of great conversations happened as a result of that post, and there is so much more that could be said.  However, one of the things I’ve been thinking about recently is what I would be willing to give up (or not give up, as […]

American Missionary Remix


For those of you who have been reading this blog for the past couple of months, you may remember me posting a couple of videos from AmericanMissionary.tv which feature Krivoy Rog.  Well, this evening, I watched a few of the episodes I hadn’t seen yet.  Having now met Gregg and having spent time with Amanda […]

One Touch


Both during the trip and in the days that have followed, I have been reflecting on a number of different aspects of my own faith, and how my beliefs apply in what seems to be a very broken world.  There are many aspects of Christianity which are easy to believe when you have lived a […]
