NO Accident

Psalm 139:13-16 " For you created my inmost being; you knit me in my mothers womb. I praise you because i am fearfully and wonderfully made, your works are wonderful, i know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when i was made in hte secret place. when i was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." Just like these verses say that God knew everyday before i was even born. He knew that my team was going to be in the tribe of Tangi Tatu sharing with the...

Surrender

Training Camp has been a great place to meet my team and getting to know more about there life and the things that they have been through. Also the reason that God has brought them here and has brought us all together on this adventure to Kenya and share the Gospel with there.  Like the rich young ruler who asked the Lord what he must do to have eternal life. God has shown me through and activity that everyone did. That there were things in my life that i needed to surrender to him. I couldn't  take them on this trip with me since He needed my time, thought and full attention in...

Is it seriously September 1st?

I cannot believe that it is the first of September. Tomorrow I will be introduced to my team and this experience which I've worked for and been anxiously awaiting for is here.  Six months ago I was sitting in church when I felt a tug at my heart. My family was going through some pretty heavy issues that were eating away at me. I was graduating high school and praying that God would help me find a purpose and lead me to what he wants me to do. That's what brought me to AIM. After sending out support letters, getting numerous shots, ordering a passport, packing, praying, praying,...

A Gift From God

Last week we did door-to-door ministry. We broke up into groups of 2-3 people, each group with a translator, and we were released into the town of Mpeketoni. My door-to-door group consisted of myself and Jenna, and our translator, Moses. Our first attempt at door-to-door ministry was probably one of the most awkward experiences of my life. The woman we tried to talk to wouldn't look at us and she got up and walked off while we were mid-sentence so she could go get her cell phone. Needless to say, when Jenna, Moses, and I left there, we were feeling rejected and a very discouraged. BUT,...

Eyes Wide Open

Every Tuesday morning we go and visit the hospital in town to visit and pray for the sick. The hospital is like no hospital in the states. The walls are covered in filth, the beds reek of vomit and urine, there is no privacy for any of the patients doesn’t matter what sickness they have. As you look around you see minimal supplies, and used syringes laying about the hospital.   On this particular morning as we were going around from bed to bed praying for people and we came across this three week old baby. The little baby was in the hospital fighting off Malaria since she was...

God’s An Electrician?

On Wednesday night, just before we were supposed to start our second revival meeting, there was a storm and we lost power. The following is an excerpt from journal before I went to bed: "Bishop asked us to go to the church and pray for power to return. He said that if it did, he wanted us to continue with service, and if not then to go back to the house. Well, we went. and we prayed. In the church. In the dark. At first nothing happened. The Lord laid it on my heart to sing "The Heart of Worship." The first two lines say "When the music fades and all is stripped away / And...
