My Letter to Future Goers

Featured story By on Track: Teaching Region: Asia - South East

Hey future Goers! After serving overseas for two years and choosing to stay long term, I have some thoughts I’d love to share with you. Hopefully you can learn from some of my mistakes and be inspired by how God can use anyone--especially those who feel weak.    Support raising: Don’t be scared!!! Raising support is a joy and God can provide for you in ways you never thought possible. During the first few weeks of connecting with people, support poured in like a flood--emotionally, spiritually, and financially. When my husband and I first decided to work globally, I hated the idea… Read more >>

Not Home Yet

By on Track: Teaching Region: Asia - South East

I’ve been thinking a lot about “home” since moving overseas. In some ways it feels like I have gained two homes--which is a beautiful thing.  There are people I dearly love in both places, so part of my heart will always be elsewhere. Yet even though we still feel very “at home” with our families in the States, it feels strange coming back. What we’ve learned and experienced overseas alienates us from others. I’ve found myself struggling to participate in “normal” conversation because I feel like I have nothing to offer--I don’t belong here anymore in the same way that I used to. Yet at… Read more >>

Old Roots in New Soil

By on Track: Teaching Region: Asia - South East

This week my husband and I went on a prayer retreat for a few days and the Lord spoke in clear, powerful ways. One thing He impressed on my heart was to think and pray about how my faith has changed since the time I came to faith. Over the last couple years my faith has felt challenged in new ways, and at times it feels difficult and complicated to integrate everything I’ve seen and experienced into my biblical worldview. As I live out my faith in a new place with people who see the world very differently than I do, my theology has been challenged. Difficult theological issues have arisen… Read more >>

Who You Say I Am

By on Track: Teaching Region: Asia - South East

The following notes were recently taken during a study on our identity in Christ. I hope it encourages you in the same way that it encouraged me!  What does it mean to be in Christ? To be in Christ is to be adopted into God’s family. We are children of God (John 1:12), accepted by Christ (Romans 15:7), united with Him in spirit (1 Cor 6:17), no longer slaves to sin (Romans 6:6), made in God’s image (Gen 1), known by God in a personal way, part of the body of Christ (the Church, His bride). We were bought with a price and deeply loved by Him (1 Cor 6:19, 1 John 3:1). Ephesians 2:10… Read more >>

For the Healing of the Nations

By on Track: Teaching Region: Asia - South East

Our time in America has now stretched one month longer than originally planned as we wait on our new visas, but the Lord knew all along how we would need and use this time. We have decided to stay overseas for the long haul, and while we are back we are using this time to tie up loose ends and prepare to launch out long-term. It has been a joy, blessing, and encouragement to see friends while we are back, and last night was no exception. We visited a family who is extremely passionate about God’s global work and desire to see His Kingdom come around the world.    Towards the end of… Read more >>
