Long time no post

February 17

Hey all, sorry I haven’t posted in awhile but I’ve been on an exciting journey! About a month ago I started in the internship program with a group called Convoy of Hope.  It’s three months long and has, and will have, me doing all kinds of fun stuff.  Their ‘mission statement’ is:

“Convoy of Hope is a faith based organization with a driving passion to feed the world through children’s feeding initiatives, community outreach, disaster response and partner resourcing.”

I’ve been doing a lot of training, and a lot of learning.  And I’ve even done some actual work!  I was down in the Dallas area during the time of the Superbowl doing some anti-human trafficking work.  That was some real eye opening stuff.  I’ve also helped out with packaging up food to be sent out to those in need (and helped supervise others to do the same too).

And now, I’m preparing to leave on Monday for the Philippines.  It’s absolutely exciting!  I will be there for about 7 weeks, doing all kinds of different work.  From helping orphanages and churches start gardens and fish ponds, to working with the feeding programs Convoy of Hope has there, to getting to know and minister with the local people – and who knows what else, our schedule is always subject to change, that’s for sure.

Anyways, I wanted to apologize for not updating this blog in awhile – and to let you all know that if you want to follow me on my adventures, I’ve been keeping up on my personal blog at and I’d love for you to take a look and see the journeys of a fellow Red Wing-ite (I’m thinking ‘Red Wing-ite’ is not a word, 😉 but it get’s the point across -right?)

I will probably do a few blogs while I’m still on this journey too, but I’ll pick up doing more regular posts when I get back home to the states in late April.

Take care, and say a prayer for me!

    Oh Lord, I pray that You would use this natural disaster and the memory of it to draw the people of Japan closer to Your Son Jesus. I pray that they would see Your greatness and their weakness, Your majesty and their unworthiness. I pray that they would call upon Your mercy and compassion, and that You would reveal to them their own sin and pride and call them to repentance and humility. I pray for the growth of true Christianity and knowledge of Your saving grace among the people of Japan. I pray that You would lay upon the hearts of Christians everywhere the desire to pray for the people of Japan long after the physical effects of the earthquake and tsunami are but a memory. In Jesus name, Amen
