[Jesus] said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came toward Jesus. - Matthew 14:29 (NRSV)
One summer, I stayed with a family who lived by a lake while I was doing a college internship. When I told them I didn’t know how to water ski, they were determined to teach me. This wasn’t easy for me, not only because I did not have great balance...
Before I can follow Jesus, I have to step out of the boat.

Seeing young people, both men and women, participate in and write their testimonies at The Upper Room daily devotional writers’ workshop in Yangon, 2019, has been a highlight for me. The event and testimonies led to the publication of the first Lenten devotional in the Myanmar language. I truly believe that through The Upper Room ministry, the Lord will continue to equip people in Myanmar to grow and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
