Lauren Is Beautiful.


I love, love, loved getting to spend time with the lovely Lauren during her HNGR internship while I was in Bolivia.

She is doing an INCREDIBLE job loving on the girls, using her gifts of energy, warmth, "RA-ness", hard work and kindness to brighten their days and light up their lives. They adore her.

And even during times when it was stressful...

(This was us post running the house alone for a full weekend) 

 ...I absolutely LOVED getting to love on these girls with her.


I enjoyed and learned so much from her wisdom, thoughtfulness, desire to serve and strength of faith and character. And she is just really fun, great to stay up late pillow-talking with, and makes me laugh a LOT. It was such an amazing blessing to process stuff with her and be a part of her HNGR journey.

Thank you so much for loving on me and letting me into your time down there, Lo! I love you!

Check out her Cochabamba life and what she is thinking about here.

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
