“She Speaks”

“She speaks.” A vague whisper that I heard in my Spirit as I unpacked the boxes from Africa. One by one I unwrapped the precious collection of items made by the women of South Africa. Items that I was supposed to set up and sell in a “Pop-up” store to benefit one of our global partners, Kwathu Children’s Home in Livingstone, Zambia. I was instantly fascinated. Throws of bright colors…Keep Reading

Be All In. Be All There.

“Wherever you are. Be all there.” – Jim Elliott A few years ago I took a trip to Zambia and I couldn’t ever seem to get all there. Physically I was there. Spiritually, mentally, emotionally I was anywhere and everywhere except for where God had called me. Usually the things that keep me from being fully present is work, insecurities in my abilities and giftings, and missing my sweet Jen…Keep Reading

Gio GO!

“Dear Friends, Something has been stirring in me lately that I should have seen coming, but I never thought I’d feel so strongly about it. Since the first time I heard about mission trips being a thing that people do, I’ve thought “That’s an amazing thing to do! But I’m probably never going to do it.” Every common excuse you could think of has run through my mind by this…Keep Reading

The “Kwathu Change Jar Challenge”

Have you ever wondered just how much change is lying around your house? I know I have! Sometimes I’ll find it between the couch cushions, lying on the table with my keys, or in the dryer after I accidentally leave it in my pocket when I wash my clothes. Sometimes I even find a few pennies, dimes, and quarters on the floor of my car, or just lying on the…Keep Reading

Look what the Lord has done in at Kwathu Children’s Home in…Keep Reading

Word from Yo ‘Mama Beka’

“The last six weeks have been such a blessing. It is still hard at times to even believe that I am here in beautiful Zambia. I have had many wonderful experiences including going to a village church. Though the church was just a small covered room, it was filled with the Spirit and I so enjoyed my time of worship there. On my off days I have been able to…Keep Reading

The Role of a Sender

“While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.” – Acts 13:2-3 “What will you be doing on your mission trip to Zambia?” Last year, when I was preparing to go to Kwathu Children’s Home, that was…Keep Reading

“Mama Beka” headed back to Africa

“A year ago, I was saying goodbye to the wonderful family I had come to know and love at Kwathu Children’s Home in Livingstone, Zambia.

Now, in just a few weeks I will be saying “hello again” to live life with these sweet children, for an entire year. I…Keep Reading
