  • “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations...” is found in Matthew 28:19 and is the key reason for all mission work. This Spring Break I was fortunate enough to go half way across the world to spread the gospel to hopeless people who have never heard the name of Jesus. Less than two percent...

  • I walk through the big chestnut double doors, trying to be as quiet as I can so maybe I will be invisible. I hear soft music playing as background fillers, there isn't much commotion. Everyone lost in their own thoughts. I see my family gathered around as I take my first step in. My heart is...

Waking up at 4 a.m., my mother climbed into the passenger seat next to her boyfriend, Steve, while the rest of us sat as comfortably as possible in the back. The twins sat in the...

  • My favorite and most meaningful trip started on June 9th, 2012, my first day of volunteering in Nicaragua. A few months back my friend proposed a plan that her, my father and I took a trip down to Nicaragua to volunteer and experience the culture. In the end, my friend couldn’t make it and I...

  • New York City, a timless city for anyone who visits. It was my first time ever to even the state of New York, and it proved to be one of the best experiences of my life. I woke up extremely early one morning, November 22, 2008 and boarded the local Amtrak station in Charlottesville, on my way to...

  • Everyone is staring at us in our big group hug, half of us sobbing.  But we aren’t sad. We just had the best nine days of our lives in the Caribbean paradise of the Kuna Yala Islands. The Kuna Yala Islands are part of the San Blas Archipelago, located just off the coast of Panama. The Kuna Yala...

  • It all started in June 2008, our tour group sat waiting around Cleveland Airport for a delayed flight to Spain. Upon learning that our flight was too late to make the connection, we went home that night. The next day we took a nonstop flight to Paris, and connected to Madrid where we once again...
