My Letter to Future GOers

By Rosie on April 5, 2022

  Dear Thoughtful Person,                                                                                                                                                                                    April 5th, 2022             If you care to continue reading, I have some words to share with you that may or may not be worth your time. I’d like to share some of the biggest lessons I learned in my time overseas, some things I wish I had known before going overseas, and I’d like to encourage you, if at all possible.             Something I learned overseas: God is a great gift giver.

Immeasurably More

By Abigail on July 7, 2021

 It was a Friday night in May. The people gathered in the audience filled with almost as much anticipation as the students that would soon proceed in alphabetical order. It was graduation day. The music began and the soon-to-be high school graduates of 2016 proceed to their seats. The speaker, a kind preacher of a local church, began to give his speech. He sent us off into the world as proud graduates of 2016. But before he did, he gave us each a souvenir. He gave us each a peso.             At the time that peso did not seem life-changing by any means, just a nice memento from the night I... Read more
