Relationship Gives Life

Relationship Gives Life

We walked into Santiago de Compostela to finish the Camino de Santiago on June 8th. It was a great ending to a long journey. An important journey that left a different impact on each man involved in the pilgrimage. We all learned more about ourselves, about each other and about Jesus. At the end of our journey we made our way into this Cathedral. To me all of these church are the same, the only th...

God Speaking Through a Sparrow

God Speaking Through a Sparrow

I’ve been noticing for a few months how, I’ve honestly felt like, God was using animals to show His love towards me.  Squirrels seeming like they are staring at me, peering into my heart.  Birds hopping all around me while I sit on a park bench; catching myself throwing them a few scraps of food as they come unusually close.  Even dogs, when I need it most, coming up to me and becoming...

Writing for Your Children

Writing for Your Children

Kingdom Journeys is a unique experience because it combines an older generation with a younger generation.  Cross-generational ministry is something that Adventures in Missions has just started doing with The World Race.  Kingdom Journeys has started out with four mentors out on the field with us and it’s been an amazing experience to have them. Seth has been teaching us how Jesus led, fough...

I Can Not Walk

I Can Not Walk

The past week or so I have been struggling with really bad tendinitis that has kept me from walking on the Camino.  My hamstring was healed by Tom praying for it like I explained in a blog a few days ago, but soon after that my ankles started to give me a lot of problems.  It’s been a challenging time for me because I have had to take buses, trains and taxis to catch up with the guys when I ...

Big group of pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago

Buen Camino

We have had the pleasure of walking beside most of these pilgrims since the beginning of our journey on the Camino de Santiago. The Camino is a community of people who become like a family.  We’ve shared our life stories, challenges and many celebrations with this group of pilgrims.  We’ve had dinners together, laughter together and a few tears have been shed along the way. Thank you t...

A Group of 12

A Group of 12

Kingdom Journeys is unique. We have six members, two staff coaches and four mentors on the field right now. Glace, one of the mentors, pointed out the fact that God has brought 12 men together to start Kingdom Journeys. There were 12 tribes of Israel. And, 12 sons of Jacob. At age 12, Jesus first appeared at the temple. Jesus chose 12 disciples. All through out scripture God is foreshadowing and i...

Boundaries are a Boundary

Boundaries are a Boundary

I use boundaries and have them in my life but I’m wondering if they are just something we’ve accepted as a “Christian practice” instead of what Jesus and the Bible tell us how to live.  I’m even wondering if there are healthy boundaries… I’ve been wrestling with the idea that boundaries actually create a boundary from the Holy Spirit moving in our lives.  ...

Praying for Healing on the Camino de Santiago

Praying for Healing on the Camino de Santiago

Today, my leg was healed by Tom from Northern Ireland. The Camino has a unique community about it, one like I haven’t seen very often… If you have been on the World Race, it’s very similar to the way your squad bonds so quickly.  You walk with the same people every day, see them every night and almost all are all caring, serving and preferring others in front of themselves. I have been...

He is Jealous for Me

He is Jealous for Me

We have been walking the Camino de Santiago now for two days, the first day was 19 miles and today was 12 miles in the freezing rain.  It’s been a tough few days walking for an entire day with a big pack on my back, I just assumed the Camino was an easy thing but it’s not. Neil shared something with me today that really hit me to my core and resonated deep in my soul. He is jealous for...

Spain is Rich with Community

Spain is Rich with Community

It’s incredible to me that God brought us to Spain to start Kingdom Journeys.  I’ve just seen so much from the way this culture lives their lives that it makes sense to me that God would want us to begin in such a rich place. This country is rich with community. Dinner here doesn’t start until about 8PM each night for the Spanish people and they want to spend at least 2 hours at ...
