Cassie Yoshikawa started a travel blog when she realized that there weren't many resources out there for Christian travelers who want to admire the Creator and not just the creation. That blog has been an inspiration for many of my faith + travel discussions and I am so excited to have her join us this week on the podcast as she shares a new perspective on tourists. She challenges us to admire the tourists as they admire God's handiwork and as they remind us of the awe and wonder in our own backyards!  You can connect with Cassie on her travel blog: Cassie's Compass! There you can find links for Pinterest, Instagram, etc. If you enjoyed todays episode, I encourage you to subscribe to our podcast on your favorite listening platform and to share this episode with a friend.

Have you heard that inner voice of criticism lately? For every decision you make about Covid-19? About every decision you make when you respond to racial tension? For your mental and physical well-being? For how you are treating your family, co-workers, neighbors, and friends? I've heard that voice too. Satan sure loves to tear us down in soo many ways. He loves to point out our failures. So today - we are turning to God and ask Him to show us how to laugh at ourselves. How to no longer be our biggest critiques, but our biggest cheerleaders. How to let what God say about us define us - rather than the criticism that says we are a failure unworthy of love.  For more faith based travel resources please visit www.christiantravelers.net.

We know that God created the world & therefore He created travel - but what does God say about travel? Today we dive into 10 Bible Verses and Stories that mention the word "travel" either in ESV or NIV translation. I then apply some of the lessons learned about travel in Scripture to our lives today. Exodus 13:21 - God travels ahead of them in a pillar of fire or cloud Numbers 21:4 - As they traveled through venomous snakes they had to look up to the bronze snake. Isaiah 33:8 - The cry of people to their gracious God when travel ceases. Matthew 23:25 - Jesus calls out the intentions of the scribes & pharisees when they travel. Acts 9:7 - Saul experiences Christ through a blinding light while traveling to persecute Christians. Acts 8:36 - Eunuch reads the Bible while traveling and gets baptized. Mark 1:39, Luke 8:1, 2 Cor. 8:19 - Jesus and the apostles are traveling to spread the Gospel and grow God's Kingdom on earth. Luke 2:44 - Mary & Joseph travel home and Jesus goes missing. To further explore travel in Scripture - look up these verses, read them in context (surrounding verses, titles, chapters, etc.), and then explore what God was teaching the people then an how it applies to our lives today.

This is one crazy season and if I am being honest... I have fallen behind with the Christian Travelers' Network podcast episodes. But as always, in the midst of this craziness God has been moving and shaking. It has been evident in the little pieces that keep falling into place. So in this episode I share how Covid-19, job transition, wedding plans, job searches, and moving... somehow make it even clearer that God hears our prayers. Even in a season like this.

What does a slave trade location, strawberry milkshakes, and VBS all have in common? They all were part of my time in Ghana, Africa. As we are all social distancing and that is putting a damper on some of our travel fun - I thought I would take this time to share some of my journal entries from a mission trip I took a few years ago. I would like to note, that the Christian Travelers' Network recognize all travel (vacations, commute to work, mission trips, etc) as God please activities that can expand His Kingdom.
