Hi! I’m Cassie. I write curriculum for Staff Development for Mercy Ships – in Lindale, TX. Hard to believe, I know… the world’s largest NGO hospital ship(s – surprise! we’re getting a new ship!) operates from a small town in East Texas, 5 hours from the nearest coast line – and that’s if you’re driving fast.
But here I am, trying my best to live by the 2000 year-old model of Jesus – loving the world’s forgotten poor, by supporting those who are serving them.
Some of you might be wondering why I am writing a blog.
I came from a Christian family. I have done some pretty un-Christian things, and had some pretty un-Christian things done to me. I lost faith. After one (of a few) life changing experience, I am back on the right path – I hope!
So, the purpose for my blog is to share real life struggles, joys, triumphs, and a little about the amazing miracles I witness through my work with Mercy Ships in the hope that they might give someone unknown to me hope. It’s also to prove that we’re all imperfect, and if we just make an effort to shine some light into the dark places we have been, it can only get better.
I believe we all have a history; one that we might not be proud of. We can’t change our pasts, we can only “rethink our thinking,” and change where we are headed.
