A Growing Family (Week 9 & 10)

Hey everyone! I’m sorry that it’s been a while since my last blog post, it’s been busy! These past couple of weeks were spent organizing and running the last Program 10 group of the summer. Each of the interns were assigned leadership roles with specific responsibilities and we were left to prepare for the team….

On the Mountain Top (Week 7 and 8 )

HEY GUYS! So, these past couple of weeks we traveled to Lesotho, a small landlocked country in South Africa. To be completely honest, before coming to Africa, I had never heard of Lesotho. Maybe it’s because it’s usually mis-pronounced (the proper pronunciation is Les-oo-too), but most likely because I’m not very good at geography. Let’s…

Breaking the Silence (Week 6)

We’re officially past our half way point of being here in Zambia! It feels like time is flying by, even though we still have 6 weeks left. So I’m trying my best to live in the moment and enjoy every day here, because before we know it, we’ll be on our way back! This week…

Starting With A Beat (Week 5)

We’re going into our 6th week guys. Which means we’re almost HALF WAY THERE! Woah. Also, I have no idea who sees these posts or how many people read them. So, if you’ve even been reading any of my blog posts, kudos to you my friend. Thanks for tagging along with me on this journey….

God’s Heart for Africa (week 4)

We’ve been in Zambia for about a month now!! (Be prepared for me freaking out about how much time we’ve been here at the beginning of every following blog post.) This week was so great. This was our first full week (besides our first week in Choma) that it was just the interns here! Our…

A New Hope (Week 3)

I know what you’re thinking. No, this week had nothing to do with Star Wars. Its incredible how comfortable I feel here now. We’re all getting used to living with 16 other people and interacting with each there every day. We’re all family, on our good and bad days. This week we welcomed the Ransom…

God’s Heart for Missions (week 2)

Guys. Week 2 is finished already! Time is flying by! But at the same time I can’t believe we still have 10 weeks left! So this was our first “normal” week. No 3am wake up calls, or travelling to an unknown location for a week. We welcomed a Program 10 group from Indiana Wesleyan University…

Expect the Unexpected (week 1)

Hello internet world! I am here and alive and in a coffee shop with wifi that doesn’t really work. So if you’re reading this, I guess it uploaded! Anyway, life is good! After a long 2 day journey in the air, we arrived on Sunday evening (May 29th), exhausted but ready to see what the…

Surrendering to Prepare, and Preparing to Surrender.

Hello, it’s me. Welcome to blawg update number 2. I leave for Zambia in less than a week, so in light of this I thought I’d talk a bit about what this process of preparation has been like for me. This internship has been coming up for like half a year, so it’s been a…

Micah 6:8

Well, hello there! Welcome to my blog. Man, I never thought I’d be saying those words, but here we are. First of all, I’m not much of a writer. I don’t know anything about grammar, and my sentences always seem to be too long or too short. Also, I don’t know anything about blogs. (Ha-every…
