I used to pray, ‘Lord, please do not make me a missionary,’ thinking only of being sent to some foreign country, forced to endure hardship that I couldn’t even imagine. Yet, here I am, returning from a missionary experience that has changed my life completely.
This outreach across the United States and to Colombia has taught me to completely surrender my time, my gifts, my trust, and even my love to God. By surrendering I allow God to use my life to the glory of his Kingdom.
I have seen the power of prayer, I’ve felt the presence of the Holy Spirit, and I’ve experienced the love of God throughout this summer. I’m now very thankful I said yes to the call of God on my life to be a missionary!
