Wait Wait Wait....You Want Me to go WHERE?

By Diamond on September 15, 2018

This is the face I made when God told me that I would be going overseas for 2 years. Now if you know me well, this was the last thing that was on my mind. When God made it clear to me that I would be going to Berlin for two years to work with youth, I laughed. I doubted. I shook my head thinking that He had made a mistake -- but God doesn’t make mistakes. He is perfect. You might be slightly curious how I got to this point: So this is the story all about how my life got flipped turned upside down. And I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, I’ll tell you how I became a goer beyond... Read more

A Change of Mindset, and Heart

By Lindsay on September 29, 2017

     When I first started searching for cross-cultural ministry job opportunities after graduating from college, I developed a knack for quickly finding the alarming and unwelcome phrase, "support raising required." 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
