Where I am right now

At this moment I am sitting on the edge of the Nooksack River in Everson my home town. Here for a few short weeks visiting my family during the time of my brother Josh's graduation from highschool. An event, that for me, happened four years ago. At the time, I believe as I walked across the platform they announced that I was "undecided" about my post highschool plans. It is unbelievable to me what I have experienced in the years since! After all I did make some directing decisions, mostly I decided to go, and that I have.. time and again!

It is my desire to try and at least share my experiences with the creation of this blog.
"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." - Jesus Christ
I must admit that in someways I have been overwhelmed by the troubles of this world, but I really want to be someone who can "take heart," and know the joys of life. Looking at the world today there are some major problems that require no less than a move of God to restore justice. What does Jesus mean that he has "overcome the world?" What does that look like? May our eyes be open to see the meaning of this.

So today, I hope I can begin to make record of this rich story as it unfolds in my life. I soon fly back to Germany where I will continue on as volunteer staff at the YWAM base in Herrnhut. The time here at home has been refreshing, to feel again the support of friends and family. I look at how things worked out, the many people I was able to see, the way God can richly bless a short visit by arraigning meetings with friends I have not seen in a long time.

God is good.
