El Sal ’16 | Day 3

Day three was particularly exciting because we were going to host the “Love and Justice” women’s conference at the Iglesia Central!! We all had been hard at work preparing songs, lessons, testimonies, etc for this special day. Women from MCA churches came from all over for this “training” and it was a blessing and an…

El Sal ’16 | Day 2 | Parte Dos

After our morning church service, we had some time for quick visit with our friends at Roca Eterna (formerly Torre Fuerte) and we got to spend some time with them singing and praying together! We couldn’t stay long though, because we were headed to Paco’s church! We were so excited because when we were there…

Dominican Republic ’17 | Intro

I know I haven’t finished writing my last ES trip, but I just got back from the Dominican Republic, so I’m eager to share! At a women’s team meeting earlier this year, Carmen mentioned that they would be taking a leadership visionary trip to Dominican Republic with a few women from the team, and although…

El Sal ’16 | Day 2 | Parte Uno

It was Sunday, and our first stop for this trip was a place that we hadn’t visited before, a church called En Hacore in the city. I’m not entirely sure of the connection, but Nicole and Carmen were telling us about some partners back at home who had helped to support and build that church…

El Sal ’16 | Day 1

Lauren and her dad picked me up at my house a little before noon. We drove to the church and were met by Pam and Keith, and Amber. It took some work to get all the bags taken care of and we ended up distributing suits and adding dresses to our cargo. Soon we were…

Prague | Day 5

We woke up on our last day in Prague and we were sad! I really love this city, and we still had so much to see! We made our across the Charles Bridge, which is full of musicians, artists and performers. Another reason I love the bridge! Our first stop for the day was the…

Prague | Day 4

Day four was another day for exploring! We got up and ready to explore new parts of the city! The first landmark we went to was the Fred and Ginger Building! I LOVE this thing! Trying to figure out where to go next.. This one makes me laugh… We found a place for lunch, but…

Prague | Day 3

Happy New Year! (10 months ago) It was January 1st, 2016 and we resolved to not be very ambitious. We hung around our apartment for most of the morning and then walked to lunch (a much longer walk than anticipated) to a cute little pizza placed called Pizza Nuveou. We were all a little tired…

Prague | Day 2

The cool thing about our time in Prague was that everything was so laid back. We never woke up too early or rushed around to get places. We took our dear sweet time to get up on our first morning in Prague – December 31st! I spent some time that morning taking in our awesome…

El Sal ’16 | Intro

This trip came and went SO fast. I have obviously been wanting to go back ever since I returned home the last time and I thought about it almost daily. When the opportunity came up, I grabbed it as fast as I could. And I have to say, although I don’t have what you could…

Pelican Hill Resort, California, USA

On the weekend of my birthday this year, my family and I had the GREAT pleasure of going out to California for my cousin’s wedding!  It was such a phenomenal time, I can’t even begin to tell you! I don’t get to see my extended family a ton, so it’s always a treat to spend…

Prague Day 1

It was traveling day. We woke up early in Iceland to head to the airport. We gave ourselves plenty of time which was really good, because we realized we were heading to the wrong airport. AH! But we corrected quickly and made it back to KEF in time for our flight. Of course, all of…
