Two Words

One word to describe my life: busy.

Wait, can I have two words? Because that one word doesn't tell the whole story.

My second word to describe my life: blessed.

Busy, but blessed.

Mobilization is now a team. It is at least a duo, a pretty dynamic duo, if I do say so myself.

Meet Trevor Allen. He joins me now in Ecuador as a fellow mobi, straight from Ohio, via Puno, Peru where he worked as a 40/40.


We are seeing so much progress in Ecuador as we cast the Extreme vision. We now have five approved 40/40s following our November 10th interviews. And honestly, we have more candidates than we know what to do with, which, I must say, is the best problem EVER!

We are now gearing up for the next round of interviews, which will take place in Guayaquil December 7th and 8th. It looks like we will have even more candidates to interview this time around!

As a matter of fact, it is worth mentioning that I will be traveling every weekend of December. This weekend, we will be speaking in a church in Riobamba. The following weekend interviews will take place in Guayaquil. The next weekend should take us to Santo Domingo to speak at another church, where one of our 40/40s is coming from. And finally, I will be headed home to the States for Christmas, and traveling to visit friends after. There won't be any dull moments for a while, which is just how I like it!

I love this job. The longer I am in Ecuador, the more I love this beautiful country. I am having the time of my life sharing my passion for missions, and seeing young people step up to follow the Lord, while the church steps up to support them. It really is an amazing privilege to be a part of what God is doing in South America through Extreme.


Last week, the United States celebrated Thanksgiving, and we, too, celebrated here in Ecuador, a small group of expatriate friends gathering together to eat, and be thankful. And I am thankful. I thank God for bringing me here, for providing for me, for placing amazing people in my life, and for blessing me with a call to serve my Lord and Savior forever and always. I am blessed.

And because I am blessed, I want to be a blessing to others, all the days of my life.

God bless you friends, during this holiday season,
