Everything is a gift.
Not only the things that bring us joy and satisfaction, not only the people that make us feel loved and worthy and important, not only times of peace and confidence and trust. No, EVERYTHING is a gift.
The last few months in Asia, I would say that God grew me exponentially in my faith. And although my time there was filled with much joy and much peace, there were also moments of extreme distress, of heartache, of sadness, and a few times, namely in the northern part of Myanmar, I was so downright scared by the terrible things I saw that I nearly booked a flight back to the USA for the very next day (I didn’t.)
I believe in God's grace through Jesus. I love to learn, in a variety of contexts - reading God's Word, interacting with people from diverse backgrounds around the world, and as a student of Linguistics and Foreign Languages at Western Washington University. Pages of My Passport is dedicated to sharing this journey of learning through written and visual content.
