Awakening

There comes a point in one’s life, when the mundane, day to day, and same schedule, just doesn’t cut it. The constant striving for success, fear of failure, comparison to others, and selfish desires, runs you into a rut of boredom. In these moments, it is easy to think it is a lame existence that plagues you. 

There is a call of something bigger. Something to live for and fight for. It brings the excitement back into life, adventure into each step, healing from the past, peace for the future, and constant fellowship with a God who is very real and very present. Not just a faith, a relationship. Jesus did not come to die for us to live half-wittedly. He came to set our hearts on fire. He came to make us come alive. He came to free us of our pasts. He came to be our best friend, father, and Lord. 

Would u partner with me today, living life the way its supposed to be lived? Jesus at the center!

Introducing Team India Member: Karina

Hello! My name is Karina Morales and I am a sophomore biochemistry student at Azusa Pacific University. Last year at World Mandate West God spoke to me telling me to go to India. India is the country with the most unreached people groups. With this designation comes a large space to see God work in miraculous ways. Going out on this trip I am expectant to see these ways in which God will work, knowing that as we go to glorify his name many people will encounter the power of his love. Image

Introducing Team India Member: Kevin and Louise

We are a family of 4 who loves science, music, reptiles, books, Legos, teaching but most of all, Jesus! In addition to being involved and blessed by the Azusa Pacific community for the last 7 years, we had the privilege to go on missions trips to Mexico twice and to Thailand last year. We are excited to serve in India this Summer, where many do not know Jesus yet.  It is our prayer that our Lord Jesus Christ be worshipped and adored across that land.Image

Introducing Team India Member: Trinity

sen
Hello! My name is Trinity Williams. My goal on this trip is to mature spiritually by being placed outside of my comfort zone. I believe it is extremely important to have an open mind in spiritual matters, but it is a bit difficult to do that when someone has never been challenged on a new level. I am excited to be traveling with team that the Lord has blessed me with. It would be amazing to know just how powerful it is to work as one unit for the Body of Christ. Through this trip, I pray that I may be a big help in any way possible to the long term missions teams that are already planted. Although I am unsure what the Lord has for us, I know that with the help from the Body of Christ, monumental memories can be made for this life and the life to come. Thank You!
