The Gesture that Did it

By Esther on January 24, 2017

“For an hour, everyone’s been talking words, words, words, but you showed me a gesture," began Angelino. With deepest sincerity, he continued, "That tells me God MUST be real and that you MUST have a personal relationship with Him.” Angelino was blown away and filled with such joy, by a gesture so simple as giving him a Bible in Pietro’s kitchen at 1:15 in the morning. See, Pietro (a friend from church, name changed) had been hosting a prayer meeting that evening. As we were finishing up around 12am, he noticed his friend Angelino walking outside. Calling out to him from over the balcony to... Read more

So Now What?

By Zack on July 16, 2018

Every summer the Avance team has a theme. Something for us to focus on and be reminded of throughout the summer. For this group, we chose the Jars of Clay passage from 2 Corinthians 4. “But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us”.

I did have a palm to face moment though when I realized... Read more

My Letter to Future Goers

By Alexander on December 19, 2017

      Well my friends, all good things must come to an end. To quote my homeboy Tolkien, “I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.” But alas, here we are at the end of two years after oceans and mountains, laughs and tears, and a whole lot of God doing some pretty neat things (usually in spite me me!).   To my friends, family, and supporters: thank you! This journey was incredible primarily because you were a part of it. Let’s keep this thing up!  To future Goers, I’m sorry. I can’t sum up everything I’d like to say to you in a succinct blog post. I’ll do my best, but if... Read more
