Come With Me

By Abbie on December 8, 2017

Hello Friends, For those of you who are already subscribed to my blog this post will mostly be geared to the seniors/recent grads but you can still read it of course. ;) I wanted to share with you guys a little bit about why you should say YES to going overseas. To do that, I will share a little bit of my story.  A long time ago my parents became missionaries. I was about four years old when we moved across an ocean to live in a whole new part of the world. Little did I know this was where God would truly mark the beginning of my story, because the moment God called my parents to missions was... Read more

My Letter to Future Goers

Stories.

By Tori on January 31, 2016

I’ve had the gift of starting the year “getting to know” people. Seriously, that’s been my job to get to know our work, our team, learn more about Dzaleka refugee camp, and develop relationships. There have absolutely been days when I’m antsy, as I learn to network and live life here, but the days I have spent with new friends, have been beautiful. As friendships begin to develop, I’ve had the honor of sharing conversations about home, life as it is, and dreams of the future. Refugee is a commonly used word, recently, as we hear about the influx of people crossing borders for safety. And,... Read more
