I Hope You Know You Belong There Too

I Hope You Know You Belong There Too

I came to Africa and these strangers allowed me the privilege to call them family; they gave me a place where I felt I belonged. Through their love, I learned so much more about Christ’s unconditional love, and in His arms I have found the most beautiful sense of belonging. Strangers, friends, family, I hope you know you belong there too.

Community

Community

One of the things so far that has blown my mind is how close everyone feels here. The community here is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. All the neighborhoods are fairly close so that makes a bit of a difference but I think it goes deeper than that. Every time I walk into a room or function I am greeted like an old friend, with loving smiles and hugs that could cure any disease.

Wrapping Up Lesotho

Wrapping Up Lesotho

So, Lesotho, was a time of ups and downs, in every sense. God is working mightily there, and I was both honored and privileged to join in for a time. The work will continue, and I can’t wait to see the beautiful harvest.

If you asked me how my time in Lesotho has been so far, I would say it has been spent in utter amazement and thankfulness. The fact that I get to know the God who created this world on a personal level is surreal, and leaves me humbled. How can one look at the beauty of this Earth and not believe?

Crazy, Beautiful, Love

Crazy, Beautiful, Love

Each day, we wake up in the homes of  families who have graciously opened their doors and hearts to host us. It is quite remarkable to me, the people that I have gotten to know in my life because of the love of Christ being shared among nations.

Trust Hope Faith has been an inspiration to me, and has challenged me in my service. Here in their own backyard, they have found a need and have worked tirelessly to help meet it. Because of this group of individuals, I am more mindful of my daily interactions, and how I can better serve others.

Count it All Joy

Count it All Joy

Some days, I find myself thanking God for the tasks I could so easily find menial, like grading papers or photocopying homework sheets. It’s in the quiet of those moments that I’m able to stand still in the knowledge that nothing is too small for showing the love of God.
