Season of life

Update on the University of the Nations Maritime Academy During the last few weeks of 2018, leading up to New Years, I was really pushing to see what God had envisioned for 2019.  This year will definitely have a different flavor to the one we just saw. In 2018, we traveled around the world (twice), planting seeds about more efficiently equipping those called to serve the forgotten people […]

I am still The Clueless Disciple

Not knowing what the next step is, is honestly, stressful. “When I first heard The Lord speak to me about going into the mission field, I wanted to know exactly what His long-term plans were.  My desire to understand what was in store for me soon blinded me from His desire for spontaneity.  It took […]

Quick Updates

Based off of my current busyness with serving as Purser on the s/y Next Wave, co-founding new training programs through YWAM’s University of the Nations for the ships ministries: brining hope and healing to the forgotten coastlines and island of the world, and coordinating and staffing the School of Navigation and Seamanship and the Bluewater (Sailing) Discipleship Training School (DTS), I have […]

I’m back!

Twenty-nine days at sea really makes you appreciate the life of a landlubber. The sweet feel of stable ground beneath your feet.  The plethora of food options.  The aroma of nature. These everyday things can be sorely missed when you are isolated on a ship in the middle of the ocean!   The YWAM Ship, […]

We’re knot all in the same boat…

Well, this was the last week of the School of Navigation and Seamanship, which means lots of “see you later” and “goodbyes.”  In YWAM though, it is rarely a forever goodbye.  The relationships I have made here, I believe, will stay with me for the rest of my life.  I am so excited to see where the […]
