Fundraiser Dinner

Last night was our team's Fundraiser Dinner. It went really well and the Lord provided so much! It actually went a lot better than I was anticipating. Anthony, Dr. Mooney, Brandon, and Becca spoke about our purpose there, what we're going to do, and how God is providing today. We had a great dinner and one amazing dessert. We raised a good amount of money for the team, and God is continuing to provide!

Anthony speaking...

Brandon talking about what we're going to be doing while in "Southeast Asia"

Becca speaking about what she's learned thus far

My reaction when Anthony forgot my name while he was introducing the team. Thanks bud! :-)

Please keep us in your prayers as we prepare to serve in this country. May God sanctify us as individuals and as a team. I know I definitely need a new perspective to succeed in this endeavor. Also, finals start this week. 'nough said?

I'm in the mood for frozen yogurt...

In Christ Alone

This past week I've been realizing (again?) just how much I must rely on Christ alone. He has reminded me that He is the source of everything. He is the best provider, the best comforter, the best Father, the best friend, etc. I cannot look to man to fulfill these roles. I must instead look to God to meet all my needs.

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my
strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights
of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when
strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in
the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took
on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of
love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to
‘Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath
of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the
ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He
rose again
And as He stands in victory
curse has lost it’s grip on me
For I am His and He is
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of
Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, or scheme of
Could ever pluck me from His hand
‘Till He
returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ
I’ll stand
