Dear Friends and Family,

My Journey continues. As many of you know, I have spent the last year living in north Georgia serving as a full time missionary for Life Teen. During my time as a missionary I have seen the Lord work in beautiful and amazing ways in the lives of teens. Many of the ways that I have seen the Lord work is through what I like to call “ah-ha” moments. Moments when a teen encounters the Love of Christ in a significant way and it suddenly clicks. One of these moments was when I served at our middle school summer camp and I met a young girl named Emily. We were closing out our session with prayer and I saw Emily sitting by herself just outside of where the other teens were. I walked over and sat next to her and asked her simple questions like what was her name, how old she was, how she was enjoying camp. She looked a little frustrated so I asked if she was ok, and she responded “I just don’t understand why God allows bad things to happen to my friends.” I spoke to her about God’s love for us, how that the trials we face on earth are ways of allowing us to lean into Christ more, and that He will never abandon His children. Emily looked up at me and asked if I thought God loved her, I was nearly speechless because I realized in that moment that she had never been told that Jesus loves her. I shared with her a verse from Isaiah, and told her the depths of Christ’s love for her. She was overwhelmed, her face lit up in a huge smile. At that moment she experienced camp with a whole new perspective, everything was different for her now, in that moment she realized she was the daughter of our Lord.

Emily is just one of thousands of teens that experience Christ through the ministry of Life Teen. It has been one of the greatest blessings of my life to serve in this ministry and witness the impact of Christ love.

I would like to thank everyone who has supported me through your prayers and donations. I truly believe that Jesus magnifies every generous effort towards furthering His Kingdom. As I enter my second year I ask for your continued prayers and support. Every donation is greatly appreciated. What is especially needed would be a monthly commitment. Thank you again for all of your prayers and support as I continue this incredible journey.

If you would prefer to write a check, please make it payable to Life Teen with my name written in the memo line and send to
