Success

By Liz on May 19, 2021

Success. It means something different to everyone you ask. The context, time frame, and end result all depend on the person and the situation. So, what does success look like for me? At the end of my two years serving in North Africa, what will be my definition of success? What would have to happen for me to look back and think “yes, I was successful” in this season? I have been going through different cultural studies with my teammates and the one we are doing right now talks about sojourners. This study has shown me how much grace is truly offered through Jesus. While my human mind tends to... Read more

The Gesture that Did it

By Esther on January 24, 2017

“For an hour, everyone’s been talking words, words, words, but you showed me a gesture," began Angelino. With deepest sincerity, he continued, "That tells me God MUST be real and that you MUST have a personal relationship with Him.” Angelino was blown away and filled with such joy, by a gesture so simple as giving him a Bible in Pietro’s kitchen at 1:15 in the morning.

Calling out to him from over the balcony to... Read more

You don’t know the culture or the language, and at school, the words coming out of your teachers’ and classmates’ mouths sound like gibberish. That sounds rather challenging, doesn’t it? Well, that’s the story of one our students named *Melissa, who entered BridgeWay at the beginning of this school year, not knowing any Spanish or English. When we first met Melissa, my fellow teachers and I were at a loss as to how to communicate... Read more

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
