What it’s like Receiving a Team As a Full Time Missionary

God molded my heart and revealed a passion for serving and loving people internationally on short term mission trips. This is probably why receiving a short-term trip was so exciting for me (plus Nadia did most of the work) and I want to share a few highlights!

PAGE FOUR: STREET OUTREACH (5.22.2017)

If you have ever been to a third world countryyou have witnessed poverty. The overwhelming fact of the matter is there isn’t any food, people are trying to survive and can barely pay for their one room home in the slum community. Showers are not expected and clothes have holes everywhere. Shoes are not always […]
