Laquaan Malachi and Zach Belton

Laquaan Malachi: Yellowstone - Tower/Roosevelt

Hello all, my name is Malachi! I am currently serving as one of the Ministry Team Leaders at Yellowstone National Park. I am 24 years old and I hold a Bachelors of Arts in History with a minor in Political Science from Francis Marion University in Florence, South Carolina. I currently live in Atlanta, Georgia where I attend Candler School of Theology at Emory University. I love to read, write, and get to know people. I also love hiking and just enjoying Mother Nature in general. I look forward to sharing my wonderful Yellowstone adventures with you!

Zach Belton: Yellowstone - Grant Village

My name is Zach and I'm from a little bit of all over, but I currently call Virginia home. I just graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in Aeronautical Engineering and I love biking, running, painting and music. Growing up, my parents always took my sisters and me to visit the national parks as often as we could, which ultimately instilled in us a sense of wonder and awe at God's creation. God has helped me steward my time this summer with a placement on an ACMNP team at Grant Village in Yellowstone, and I am excited to enter into the ministry He is orchestrating there.

"The simplicity which is in Christ is rarely found among us. In its stead are programs, methods, organizations and a world of nervous activities which occupy time and attention, but can never satisfy the longing of the heart. The shallowness of our inner experience, the hollowness of our worship, and the servile imitation of the world which marks our promotional methods all testify that we, in this day, know God only imperfectly, and the peace of God scarcely at all."

Returning late last night from Colorado, I had several hours of flight to reflect on the encouraging training conference hosted by ACMNP for our summer ministry teams.

Last weekend when I was in Estes Park, Colorado, surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, I understood why Jesus went into the wilderness.

"Coming into this program, I did not realize the need for Christian missionaries within the U.S. This opinion quickly changed upon learning that there are no Christian churches in the area, and we were the closest option for Christian community within about a 45 minute drive."
– Christopher, Zion 2010
