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

So Now What?

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”.

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

Why Walking Is Bad

By Laura on March 18, 2015

              Last week I spent 4 days at an orphanage. Night and day we ate, worked and slept in the building that is home to over 30 disabled children. I had a hard time sleeping at night; partly from my mind spinning from medical and therapy possibilities from the day past and for the day ahead, and partly from hearing crying children left unconsoled in their beds. This trip I was accompanied by a former GoCorps goer who is visiting my team to offer her expertise as an occupational therapist. She has been blessing the foster families and orphanages with her assessments and therapy... Read more
