5 Things to do in the Waiting

Written by Jaelynn Woullard   You might be wondering what type of waiting we are talking about. Are you waiting in line for a ride at Disney? Waiting in the line to check out at the grocery store? Waiting to hear from a friend? Waiting in the Chick-Fil-A drive-thru for your 12-count chicken nuggets and medium fries with Chick-Fil-A sauce? There are so many different things that we wait for daily that we usually try to get through quickly. But what can you do when you are waiting on God? I am going to tell you about 5 things that I often do when I am in a period of waiting for God.    Remember that God is in control. ...

Burdened for Others

By Greg Burton   We had a party at our home in London to both celebrate my 50th birthday (no comments please) and also to celebrate our family being in London for 1 year! More than a few times that night I stood back and marveled at the Lord's provision as the room was filled with friends that just one year ago we hadn’t even met! There were neighbors, home school families, guys I coach with, church friends, and others whom, in just one year, we had broken bread with, laughed with, cried with, and built relationships with. But what moves us the most are the friends in our home that night who do not follow Jesus.   In this ...

His Purposes are Great and His Ways Unexpected

By Jaelynn Woullard, Team #11 During high school, I was in the medical academy. I thought that it was the field that I wanted to go into as a career and that I was going to be a nurse. During my senior year I took 2 classes that had to do with the medical field: EKG Technician and Home Health Aid/Phlebotomy.

But I was taking a prescription for migraines and they said that I would have to be off the medication for a year before I could ...

Levels of Flexibility

By Erin Miller, Team #11 For me, being flexible is very important. I didn’t realize it until recently but I am constantly needing to be flexible. I am not talking about when you exercise. I am talking about when your plans change without warning and you have roll with it. Whether it means fixing something for dinner at the last minute or changing plans most of the day, due to a change in weather–all types of flexibility are important and the better you are with change, the better you will be with spur of the moment kind of things. It is just part of being flexible.  I know different people react differently in their ability to be ...

Reality of a Missionary Prayer Life

By Maria VanDerDecker Prayer has been difficult lately. You know, we all have those days when our prayer life isn't what we want it to be. Or those weeks, or months (or, to be honest, a whole year). Me too. Now before you freak out because this is your missionary saying this, let me assure you, I'm a real person too. If we could dispel that “missionaries are super-spiritual” myth, that'd be great. Prayer is hard sometimes for missionaries too. I have a good friend who knows I struggle with prayer sometimes. She does too. And we both encourage each other to keep going, that it is really worth it, that it is hard and we understand, and we ...
