This Is My Neighborhood

By on Track: Ministry Region: United States

Hi Friends, Compared to last month, this month in Phoenix has definitely been a lot better as I’m getting to know my team more and also my apartment complex. As I’ve been plugging into community here more, I’m extremely grateful for this place I get to live, serve, and represent the gospel in. It’s one of the most diverse and unique places I’ve seen, and the mind-blowing thing is that it’s all right here in Arizona! To give you an idea of what my neighborhood is like, here are some unique aspects of the apartment complex I live in called 19 Apartments: 19 Apartments has 236 units. GoTEN has… Read more >>

Transitions: They're Hard, But Good

By on Track: Ministry Region: United States

Hi Friends, I’m thankful to share with you that I’m now in Phoenix, Arizona beginning ministry to refugees with my team. It’s humbling to think how far God has brought me up to this point and where He will continue to lead me in this journey. I’ve been here for almost a month and it’s been quite eventful as I’m getting to know my teammates, learning what my role is on the team, and meeting different refugees in the community. Within this month of transition, there have definitely been a lot of highs and lows. I don’t like to admit or show it, but change is really hard for me especially when… Read more >>

Greetings, Friends!         This past month I've been in Union Mills, North Carolina attending missions training before launching to Phoenix. One of the big highlights of the training has been meeting other singles, married couples, and families who are dedicating their lives to share the gospel all over the world. It’s been an amazing privilege to hear the numerous stories of how God has led each of them to the countries and people groups they are serving. When initially looking at the community we’ve built during training, it doesn’t make sense how we’ve been able to build close friendships… Read more >>

Is it worth it? Yes.

Featured story By on Track: Ministry Region: United States

Hi, friends!             I’ve been slowly reading through a book series called The Wingfeather Saga, which is a good ole fantasy, adventure story. In the second book of the series, there is profound quote that constantly comes to my mind as I think more about the transition to Phoenix and full-time ministry these next two years. The context of the quote is a prime character named Janner is reflecting about the adventure he’s been thrown into and how the journey has already impacted him so much.  The journey has stretched and challenged him to the point where he realizes he and his family will… Read more >>

The Journey of Refugees

By on Track: Ministry Region: United States

Hey, friends! As I’ve been sharing with people about going to serve refugees in Phoenix, a question I get asked occasionally is how do refugees even get to the United States? That’s a great question, and recently I’ve come across a couple great articles from different refugee resettlement agencies. They nicely break down the process a refugee goes through to enter the U.S. and also explain the differences between refugees, asylum seekers, immigrants, and migrants. A Refugee's Journey To The U.S. Refugees, Asylum Seekers, Immigrants, and Migrants  I hope these articles provide more insight… Read more >>
