There isn’t a place in the world I wouldn’t want to go, at least once.  I don’t say this in a bragging way, it’s just the way I feel.  Not sure why.  I guess I like the idea of seeing new places and meeting new people.  With this in mind, I was happy to make my first ever trip to Asia a few weeks ago.

The way I tend to do travel, and decide where to go, is probably not that unusual, tho I haven’t discussed it at length with others, and didn’t get the idea from observing some other person.  It’s on the basis of relationships that I decide where to go.  Clearly the Lord can prompt us to go to places where we don’t know anyone.  For the most part, that hasn’t been the way it’s worked with me.

Six weeks after returning from Nicaragua for the FX Missions Young Leaders Intensive, it feels like a wonderful dream that was too good to be real Continue reading “Nicaragua Young Leaders Intensive Trip Report by Kate Nevarez”

Nicaragua Dec2015 Trip Report by Alisha Joy Tomsen

This story really starts on the fourth of July, because that was the day that my friend dropped me off at the airport and I left the life I had spent the past few years building. Friends, mentors, small children I adored-I left them all behind. After two and half years of working as a missionary in Mexico, I was headed home for good, all because I felt God tugging at my heart and telling me it was time to go.

Even with the prompting of the Holy Spirit, it felt a little like failure. I felt like a missionary that just couldn’t Continue reading “Nicaragua Dec2015 Trip Report by Alisha Joy Tomsen”
