One of the coolest things about going to Greece was all of the history that it holds. Thinking about who has been there, what has happened there, how long ago that was. It’s all sort of over my head. But because of that, it fascinates me. During our debrief, we traveled about 2 hours away… Continue reading hello, Corinth.
Reflecting back on my time in Greece and realizing how God has moved and worked is really cool. If there is one thing that I learned over these 6 weeks, it is that God is faithful. I’m not sure why I ever doubted that, really. There are countless examples of God being faithful in the… Continue reading great is Thy faithfulness.
Legs. Such interesting things they are. They are able to take us places we couldn’t otherwise go. They let us jump, run, walk, dance, skip. They can be broken, but they also know how to heal.

We were taught by a sweet lady who helps the local Agape (Cru) staff learn Greek. It’s such a cool language but oh so very complicated.… Continue reading blossom.
God continues to amaze me. Every single day. The vastness of this city is mind blowing, yet so humbling. As Americans, we tend to have this outlook that we know everything and do everything the right way and the best way and as we come to this other country to “reach the lost” that we… Continue reading how majestic is Your name.
So good news friends! I have arrived in Athens, Greece! We got here around 10pm on the 27th. And oh what a wonderful whirlwind it has been. We have been doing in-country briefing to help us become familiarized with the area and learn more about Greek culture. The term “Cru” isn’t used in Greece… Continue reading welcome to Greece.
Today I leave to meet up with my team in Chicago. I am nervous for the unknowns and excited for what awaits. I’ve anticipated this day for 3 months and it’s finally here! As I sit at the airport, I wanted to share a brief testimony about my heart behind this trip and missions… Continue reading go.
My life is going to be a lot more exciting in a few short days. I will be spending 6 weeks of my summer in Athens, Greece. During my time there, I will be with a team of 16 other people. We will be serving the Greek community, sharing the Good News of Jesus, getting… Continue reading new journey.
