Global Glimpses

Welcome to my first installment of “Global Glimpses” — a new feature in which I will highlight the stories of those who participate in our various international and local initiatives. I hope that these brief testimonies will give you a glimpse of how God is using Kingsland volunteers to advance His purposes around the world. I will post a new installment of Global Glimpses at least once a week. Enjoy.

Who | Kay Smith and my whole family!

What We Did | Traveled on a family mission trip.

Where We Went | We went to Kolkata, India — the place that my daughter and I fell in love with last summer when we traveled there with a Kingsland Student Ministry Team.

Biggest Challenge | Knowing that it was “up to us” and we couldn’t rely on other people to accomplish the tasks that God had given us to do. It was a challenge in that there wasn’t a time that we could just “hope that it got done” — from planning all the way until the end of the trip.

Greatest Blessing | Seeing each other with new eyes and encouraging each other when we were tired. It was also a huge blessing to be able to love on our new friends in India as a family. We have the most wonderful memories.

Where To Next | I will be going back to India in June with Free The Captives!
