Immeasurably More

By Danielle on July 7, 2016

I would like to start by sharing with you my hate for Houston roads and traffic. Once upon a time, there was a Waco-Abilenian girl who thought she could make it in the big city with just a GPS as her guide. Ladies and gents, please take notes. Houston does not follow GPS rules because they’re always under construction and always changing their exits on you. They also are little sneakers with their tolls and don’t tell you ahead of time that you must have a toll tag or pay 33 dollars. No mercy for the clueless out-of-towner. None at all. I did have a palm to face moment though when I realized... Read more

So Now What?

By Zack on July 16, 2018

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”.

So if you are in the good company of the many people wondering what keeps my team here, and what causes us to travel into the mountains whenever we can, please listen to this story, and let me know what you think: Like most of our trips, this one was full of driving. We drive from village to village, singing and lifting up the people who live in the houses that we pass by. The weather here is turning from winter to... Read more

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
