A Journey to Mars

By Ellen on October 5, 2020

On July 30th, NASA launched their Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover. This little rover has an exciting job of exploration and research in front of him. But Perseverance has a long way to go. He won’t actually land on Mars for another 7 months! If rovers have feelings, Perseverance might be feeling a little restless and impatient on his long journey. In many ways, the past 7 months here in Berlin have felt like a journey to Mars. The world has changed from what it was back when I landed in Berlin some of those changes have affected the process of settling into life here. There have been moments... 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!

I’ll do my best, but if... Read more

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

Why Two Years?

By Bekka on June 26, 2016

I chose GoCorps because God told me I needed to give 2 years. I assumed this was an arbitrary number chosen for my sake. It's not an incredibly long time, although it is not an overwhelmingly short time either. In my mind, two years was exactly long enough for me to get a decent taste, and from there I would decide if I wanted to go further and make a real difference. When I hit a rough spot in support raising my coach said "Don't give up, your team is waiting for you! They need you!" I was skeptical. It was not that I thought that God would not use me, I just assumed that two years just wasn... Read more
