I am going across the world

to love kids

who I know nothing about.

I don’t know their struggles.

I don’t know their fears.

I don’t know what they have been through.

I don’t have advice.

But I have Jesus.

and he is more than enough.


I have been given many opportunities to step out in boldness lately.

It is exciting.




Exciting doesn’t describe it… it kinda makes me wanna cry and laugh at the same time, shaking my head in disbelief. The disbelief is not in my God, but in how I lived outside his “pushings” for so long. I grieve that. So I forget what lies behind and strain forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize for the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3).

He opens doors for His glory…

and it makes me smile.

Off to prepare for the logistical things (finding a long skirt), and praying he prepares all else.

    Love this Laur…and we are praying you guys through this trip. Was telling Jess at dinner (your Sunday am), that this week may well be one of 3-4 super memorable events for the Ukarumpa highschoolers whole high school career. Many MKs seem to know a lot about God, but don’t know Him 1 on 1….may THIS be the week. You guys are covered, covered in prayer. Under His Wing, K
    ps…LOVE the little PNG flagface boy.
