  •   My cell phone rang. My youth pastor anxiously awaiting for me to answer. As he began to tell me that my church was willing to pay for my trip to the Dominican Republic as a missionary, my eyes began to water. I had always dreamt of visiting another place that was less fortunate than I, to not...

  • My trip to China was amazing. I miss China even more now than I did the day I had to leave. I was able to visit 6 different cities, Beijing, Xi'an, Guilin, Shanghai, Wuzhen, and Hangzhou. Shanghai was amazing! Shanghai is the most technologically advanced city in China. I cannot describe how...

  • We are a family who has faced some unusual circumstances, including the premature birth of triplets; myself, a sister and brother in the fall of 1992. So far, it’s been an incredible journey! Growing up in our house, largely because of the health issues we three  faced, our mother gave up her...

  • Excitement, fear, curiosity, fatigue, the want of food and comfort with a side of adrenaline. It was the perfect concoction of uneasiness and restless that kept me yearning for more as I traveled that year. It was the middle of my 8th grade break and my mom got a goup of local students and I...

  • It’s not often that people get married. It’s even rarer when it’s Hari, my Canadian-born cousin marrying Brynn, his college sweetheart. When they announced their engagement, my family was thrilled. We gushed about their wedding for months, fantasizing about the floral arrangements, and the Jordan...

  • At the Royal Lahaina Resort, I wake up with the rising sun and walk out of our cottage to meet the warm sun and a cool breeze.  Plumeria fall from the surrounding trees, painting the ground with pinks, yellows and whites. As I string together the flowers to make a lei, I pick up a perfectly molded...

  • I spent seven days this summer in Lares, Puerto Rico, building an altar for the International Bible Baptist church—a trip sponsored by my church in Warminster, Pennsylvania. We flew out of Philadelphia at 7 a.m. and landed in San Juan at 11:30 that morning. The weather was rainy -- dark clouds...

  • On jolly Christmas Day, two years ago, I opened a rather strange gift. It wasn't wrapped, simply taped shut in an ordinary brown mailing box. I carefully peeled off the tape, wondering what could possibly be inside such a poorly decorated present, and pulled one frilly fuchsia lei from the box. I...

  • Two words. Air. Sickness.  I had attempted to prepare myself for the 14 hour “adventure”, but there is no way of knowing how you will handle your first flight.  I, obviously, was not doing very well.  A ticket mishap had split our family of five into five different seats on five different rows on...
