Looking back, I can see how that weekend clearly impacted the direction of the year that followed. It was on this weekend from May 2018 … Continue reading A group who get’s me
For a long time, I struggled with this question: how do you know what you’re meant to do? That's a big question! It would have been much easier if I knew I was called to be a fireman or an astronaut. But it never came that easy or that clearly. Instead, I’ve had to find … Continue reading Practically showing Jesus’ love.
I want to know what I should be doing with my life, and to be able to do it right now, without making mistakes or doing things that aren't my ultimate purpose.

I've haven’t posted on my blog for a couple of weeks as I've been away for more nights than I've been home. Because I was curious, I counted it. For the first 6 weeks of this year I've slept in my own bed for 15 nights. Fifteen. Only 15 times! Fourteen of those nights I … Continue reading A remarkable start to the year.
It's been about 3 months now since I got back from a STOMP in East Timor. What in the world is a STOMP?!? They are WEC's Short Term Overseas Mission Programs, through going on one of these trips it gives you a taste of what mission is like in the field. They can be for … Continue reading Stomping in East Timor
You know that feeling before you do something out of your comfort zone, and you know everything will change. Well maybe not everything, but at the time it feels like everything. This is what I imagine it's like to launch a rocket. And that's what starting a blog feels like. This is the hardest thing … Continue reading Rockets are go
As the year comes to an end I've been reflecting on what God has taught me. Firstly, His timing is perfect! In November of last year I began praying "God I'm willing to do whatever you want me to do, but you need to show me what that is." For about four months this was … Continue reading Things I learnt in 2018
I shared a little bit in an earlier post about my heart for missions and why I’m writing this blog and what I hope you as the reader might take away from it.

I feel most alive and passionate when helping … Continue reading This is me
