.Breathe In, Breathe Out.

I sat down at a local Starbucks and looked up, the scene was so different from where I had found myself for the past 8 months. I had to make an emergency trip to America and found some time between it all to sneak in some meetings with my Pastor. I had seen him the […]

.Our Year from the Inside Out {Part 1}.

This month marks the one-year anniversary of our time here in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It has been a very emotional year, one that has seen mountaintop experiences and deep valley encounters.

.Meet Bethany.

Allow me to introduce you to one of our board members. It is fitting that she is the first board member I introduce to you, as she was the first person I called when we began the process of founding Mercy Branch. I tell Bethany that she is my first adopted daughter. Although that is […]

.My Village.

I don’t know when I first realized how badly I needed it, or how intensely my soul longed for it. But I know when I realized I did not have it. My story is not one in which I turned from shocking sin to intense, unrelenting devotion to God. No, my story is one of […]
