5 Minutes of My Day: Picking Thorns

We have just arrived in Haiti and we’ve booked it to Manze Marie, a mountainside village just outside of the city of Jacmel. We’ve just spent the past 45 minutes driving one of the roughest (if not the roughest) road I’ve ever driven. But now, here I am, standing at the church, overlooking the beautiful […]

5 Minutes of My Day: Barriers of the Heart

Eric and I are sitting in the car at the airport. We’re in the middle of our trip-leading season, mid June. It’s hot, humid and the country is full-to-the-brim with people, missionaries, relatives visiting, tourists and adventurers alike. The airport is a mess, people walking on top of one another it’s so packed. We are […]

Haiti 2014 Summer (photo blog)

Earlier, I shared some of the videos I took for Bethany while in country this summer. Continuing that thought, I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures from the summer. A lot of these pictures are me with our PPM staff, a group of people who worked endlessly alongside me throughout the summer. When you […]

5 Minutes of My Day: Dancing Mama

When the house mothers danced their way into the middle of our circle and led us in worship, we danced until we couldn’t any longer. In sweet unity we breathed in the fullness of Christ and grasped tightly to the moment, so full of life.

The Truth Burden – Post-Mission Responsibility

But what will those back home learn from my time gone? Only what I tell them. What will my parents think of Haiti? Only what they hear from me. They trust me, they know me, they’ll take my word for it.

Guest Post: Hi, My Name Is Brittni.

What They Don’t Tell You About Being a Missionary

My Missionary Dream I remember my 11 year old self, adamantly claiming the future title of “Medical Missionary” at the dinner table, resulting in the teary-eyed admiration of my mother, eye rolls of my brothers and protective-worry-eyebrow-furrow of my father. I remember my thoughts of what that would look like, traveling all over the world, saving […]
