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 […]

Seeing the fruit

“When predictability is high, impact is low. In other words, when the audience thinks they know what you’re going to say, and you go ahead and say it, your words make very little impact. On the other hand, when an audience is surprised or intrigued, they will think long and hard about what they’ve heard…. […]

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 […]

A full schedule

Life is complicated, busy, and there are too many opportunities to even think about merely doing one!  I absolutely love what I am doing, and it helps that I have an amazing boss; Jesus! As mentioned below, I am pretty busy, but there are always things that I would still love to do, but there […]

Rescuing locals from a volcano

Our muscles were tense as the ocean spray hit, causing our clothes to become damper than we intended when we dressed that morning.  The perpetual bobbing of the watercraft nearly caused the lifejackets to take flight in the wind.  We were soaked.  How were we to know that we would be wading up to our […]

Serving God in the Pacific

The ways God works never ceases to amaze me.  He orchestrated the YWAM ship the Pacific Hope to be moved to the Caribbean months ago, and now there is a huge need for hurricane relief in the same area where ship is going. Through the continuation of developing the new ministry for training missionaries to […]

One year later….

It has been nearly 365 days since I have left the United States of America!  The Lord is so good, and His presence in my life is overwhelming!  I have travelled 27,000 miles, personally seen over 60 people healed, ministered in 9 different countries, pastored or preached at over 18 churches, and seen around 125 […]

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 […]
