Chapter 9: A New Sister!

By Timothy on June 16, 2018

I got introduced to a local man named Obi through my team leader early in the month and have been meeting with him every month to help him with English, but mainly to study The Word with him. He considers himself 'Muslim' for the sole reason that he lives here. However, he has been searching for the truth for years. Second time I met with him, he mentioned one of his female friends (her name is Ramz) who also has also shown interest in learning more about Jesus. So I met with her that day and shared The Gospel. She listened and took it in. For 3 weeks, I hadn't seen her until she came to a... Read more

Immeasurably More

I would like to start by sharing with you my hate for Houston roads and traffic. Once upon a time, there was a Waco-Abilenian girl who thought she could make it in the big city with just a GPS as her guide. Ladies and gents, please take notes.

It was often casually tucked underneath an average-looking heading among all of the other nitty-gritty details of the job being listed. As soon as those words, or any other phrase resembling them, came into view on my computer scene, my cursor would slowly slink to the the little red exit button in the corner. "Nope! Not for me," I would declare to myself as I searched onwards... Read more

Is it worth it? Yes.

By Dora on August 25, 2018

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...
