Erika Spitler

writer & missionary


I currently live on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean where I serve as a missionary at Youth With A Mission.

Any attempt to do this life from the wells of my own strength are only weak and broken. I know what it is like to be deep in pain, loneliness, and cynicism – but I have encountered a Love that has set my burdened self free.

My life is being changed by God's faithful pursuit and I long for the world to know His great love. I really enjoy getting to share about the lessons, hope, challenges, and memories I am collecting along the way. 

It sounds fancy, but really I am just a girl who owns a unicycle, likes fermented soybeans, and goes by "Erika from America." 

To know more, you can read my story or see what I love.
