Mission to Chinatown

I recently went on a mission trip to Chinatown; at my college we call it “Missions on the Shoestring. In which our college reaches out to other communities like Philadelphia, Manhattan, and the Bronx, I have never been on a mission trip so I took this opportunity to go to Chinatown, it wasn’t overseas but it was similar. Some of the students and I stayed at Chinese church and from than on the trip was amazing. I learn so much about the Chinese culture. I saw many Buddhist temples that unbelievers worship their god, we ate their traditional food (ducks feet, chicken feet, noodles, and many more I can’t name them all). We had the opportunity to reach out the people of Chinatown; it was pretty hard to talk to them because many of them did not speak English, but we did not give up. We prayed for them and ask that the Lord would give us more chances to reach out to them. We prayed that the Lord will draw Himself nearer to them and save them. This mission trip has shown me the importance of reaching the people about the Gospel and to never give up. I pray that the Lord will give me the boldness to reach people from all backgrounds about Gospel.

Godly Women From the Past (Gladys Aylward Part 2)

Quotes from Gladys Aylward
"I wasn't God's first choice for what I've done for China…I don't know who it was…It must have been a man…a well-educated man. I don't know what happened. Perhaps he died. Perhaps he wasn't willing…and God looked down…and saw Gladys Aylward…And God said - "Well, she's willing."
“If God has called you to China or any other place and you are sure in your own heart, let nothing deter you….Remember, it is God who has called you and it is the same as when He
called Moses or Samuel.”

"My heart is full of praise that one so insignificant, uneducated, and ordinary in every way could be used to His glory for the blessing of His people in poor persecuted China."

Malawi Mission Trip 2016

Its been two weeks since I have been back in America after being in Africa. I was able to go on a mission trip to Malawi. Since being back, I am still speechless. I can't find the words to explain my experience of being in Africa. The land is beautiful. The people are beautiful. The food is amazing. Some of the things I can take away from being in Malawi:

1) To be grateful. There were days that we went without running water (could not take showers). I thought to myself that the Malawi people go through this all the time and I still see them praising God. 2) To Pray, Worship and Rejoice always. I need to make up my mind daily to not let the world fill me up. I saw people walking for hours to get to church and while in church service praising God. I need to daily sit at the Lords feet and be with Him praying.  3) I can live without social media. During the trip we did not have much internet and we were okay. Since being home, I have found myself sitting in silence and meditating on …

Journal Entry #14 - Free me up, from the Fear of Rejection

Abba I pray for peace in my heart and mind. I no longer want to believe in the lies that I am worthless, ugly, and slow. I need (want) you to remind me of who I am in you. When I look at my past I see a girl that has been hurt. A girl that was lonely and invisible. Show me Your love for me. Show me that I belong to you

The pain from being rejected still haunts me. My mind is filled with memories of being rejected. There were many times I was called ugly, monkey, slow, made fun of because of my weight and height, I notice that sometimes I would isolate myself from others because I was afraid of being rejected by my peers. What others thought of me, consumed me. I placed more value on what others have said and thought about me then what God says about me, as his child. The Lord has shown me His love and everyday I am learning to lay down the fear of rejection.
