His Vessels – An update from the Nicaragua Mission Trip

The following is an update from our Team 5 & Team 6 intern mission trip to Nicaragua. Each intern has written a few sentences about their experience on the trip. We praise the Lord for His work and provision as we served with ABWE missionaries in the Managua area.

CBM Intern – The Wrong Place at the Wrong Time

By CBM National intern, Jordan Mancari Have you ever felt like you’re constantly in the wrong place at the wrong time? For me, this was most of my life; I was constantly asking “What’s next? Where do I go from here?” It wasn’t until I got older that I really began to know the meaning of what I was asking.

CBM Full-time Ministry – Full Abandon

By CBM National Intern, Sarah Pafford This is for all my fellow brothers and sister that are considering full time ministry. Let’s be honest, it is probably the most spiritually rewarding thing you can do with your life, but it comes at a great price and is exhausting. You pour yourself out on a continual basis so you may serve the Lord to the fullest of your capacity. Of course, our Heavenly Father deserves our all.  It’s the least we can give, and it’s so completely worth any sacrifice we may have to make to follow Him. Just look at the disciples, especially ...
