God’s call to mission service is a high calling—one extended to every child of God. Whether in the mission field of our home country or serving overseas, we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus (Romans 10:13-15).
I have been involved in ministry for most of my life, serving God while working at summer camps, ministering in churches and non-religious occupations, and most recently serving overseas.
I have learned through this journey of life that God’s timing and plans are far more significant and better than anything we could ever imagine for ourselves. Following Christ, I have had the privilege to meet people and people groups that I never imagined I would meet. I have enjoyed meals with high-ranking international military officers. I have enjoyed sitting in a mud hut eating with friends that could barely afford to feed themselves.
Through it all, God has shown me that to be a servant to all, we must be willing to go where He has called us to serve. While I miss my friends from the mission field, I am excited to be moving forward in this new chapter of life where God has led.
As a field director, I feel privileged to now serve other missionaries. This responsibility, too, is a high calling. To reach the lost through mentoring, coaching, supervising and supporting other workers is a blessing. I am humbled.
