The Master Cleaner

Today, instead of heading to church, we spent the morning at an elderly man’s home where the shrubbery and trees were overgrown and the outside of the home was filled with mildew. I spent the entire morning power washing the house, steps, windows, and gutters of the home. As I sprayed the side of the…

8.12.17

One year. 12 months. 365 days. 8,670 hours. 525,600 minutes. A lot can change in a year. There are times in every life that you can look back, pin point and say, “That day. That hour. It changed me.” August 12th, 2016 will forever be a time in my life, and in so many lives, that…

Kitchen Reveal!

As I prepare to move in (this Sunday!!!), I have been incredibly busy finishing up some last minute projects. I’ve purposefully waited to post pictures of the kitchen, because it has been the biggest transformation. I realize now that I don’t have very many good pictures of the kitchen. We are putting on the pulls…

Fire Check

Guys, so much transformation has been taking place at my little home! I’m so so excited! I was talking with my mom today. I think the biggest reason I’m excited to move in is just because I’m so excited about my house. My house. That’s just still so crazy. It’s been my empty canvas to…

Time Flys

Wow, it’s been awhile. Summers seem to be incredibly busy no matter what stage of life you find yourself. I thought my summers would look a lot different/be slower since I’m now a full-time working adult, but this summer I haven’t stopped. My life has been consumed with work, free-lancing, renovating my new house, shopping…

Transition

Sunday night we left Providence House and all our new friends for the YWAM base to join the youth group.  We spent the morning at church with Taylor, Jake, their family, and the Minnesota team. The church service was awesome. Ugandans are so energetic with their worship and just their enthusiasm for Christ. After the…

The Ugandan People 

Eager to serve and always smiling, the Ugandan people are so friendly! Whether you’re walking down Main Street, driving on the back of a boda-boda, loving on kids in the village, or talking to the watchmen, everyone here is so friendly and servant hearted! It’s very different from Kenya. In Kenya many are just out…

Finally back 

After 2 years, I’ve finally arrived back in Africa. This time I’m with my entire family and we are in Uganda. We arrived in entebbe around noon and then made the long trek to Jinja. We arrived at the providence house, where we are staying around 4:30.  Upon arrival, we settled in and then walked…

Abu Dhabi for a Day

Today we landed in Abu Dhabi, UAE! We have an overnight layover so we planned to get settled and then go out and see the city. After checking in, dad and I went to work out. As I played worship music out loud in the hotel “gymnasium”. I couldn’t help but think about the Middle…

Reunited with the Red Dirt Roads

In just 2 days, I’ll head out to Uganda. I’ve been anticipating this day since I left Kenya/Uganda 2 years ago. Missions changes you. It shapes you. I left a large piece of my heart with the people, red dirt, and slow paced life of the Kenyans. I cannot wait to join my sister and…
