    I am absolutely loving these blogs. As a pretty new and young Nazarene it’s really cool to hear more about the global church and hearing about the vision lived out!

    Melanie, your passion, service, and hopeful attitude is inspiring! Thanks for sharing these exciting stories, as well as your hopes for the Church of the Nazarene. I would love to see the COTN get back to being a “bunch of weirdos” who are all about loving people on the margins!
