Excitement and anticipation surged through my mind as I boarded my flight from Washington D.C. to Miami, where I would meet the rest of the AYC Costa Rica group. I left home with what I thought was great expectation for the miraculous to occur. I came for a new experience, new friendships (I hoped), and powerful services. As I look back on that day, I realize just how little I actually expected from God. He intended it to be so much more.
I applied back in October, but ever since the age of ten, I felt a burden for missions. The opportunity finally opened for me to apply to go on my first AYC trip during the summer of 2018. I felt peace when I applied, and then it hit. Attack after attack came into my mind and my personal walk … Read More »
Reading the story of David, I don’t believe Jesse understood the effect a little cheese and bread would have on the kingdom when he reached into his cupboard and sent David to the front lines of the battlefield. He intended to nourish the soldiers. However, the ripple effect caused a warrior to be birthed that would defeat a nation-crippling enemy. We rarely know the full impact of our actions. We may make one decision to affect one situation. However, we rarely see the whole outcome God intends. It’s God’s ripple effect.

Salama! (Hello!) This past summer I had the privilege to attend an Apostolic Youth Corps trip to Madagascar. We were able to minister alongside missionaries Chris and Sister Paula Richardson. Under the leadership of our chaperones, the Enseys, the Huizars, and Sister Clayton, we witnessed 215 people receive the Holy Ghost, twenty-three healed including two sets of blinded eyes opened and twenty people baptized in saving name of Jesus Christ.
This trip affected me in a way that can’t necessarily be put into words. My bishop used to have a saying, “Change is not a bad thing.” However, this saying always seemed to be followed by a disappointing change. This trip made me realize that change truly is a beautiful thing. If you’re thinking about going on an AYC trip, there are a few things to consider.

My heart is flooded with joy and my eyes with tears as I write this brief account of my AYC trip to Spain and Portugal. Though I don’t believe I could adequately put into words how deeply each individual on our trip was touched, I hope to bring you a brief glimpse into Apostolic Youth Corps.
It’s July 19th and I’m walking off of my plane in Nashville, TN. Currently residing in Murfreesboro, TN, the drive home only takes 45 minutes. But it’s not the drive home that I’m excited about, but rather sharing my week-long experience in Washington, D.C. with some of the coolest people on God’s planet. This is my account of AYC D.C. 2010.
It started off when I was 16 years old with a burden God gave me to see souls won. Throughout the years God has opened many doors for me to grow in ministry; through witnessing, teaching Bible studies, and traveling and preaching, God has taken me places in my 6 years of ministry that many ministers never get to go. It was a Sunday in September, and my pastor’s wife came up to me and mentioned that she had been … Read More »
