She was 7 when she first told her parents she would become a missionary doctor. She was 8 when she took back the doctor part, realizing she disliked blood and gore (though she’s currently training herself to get used to those kinds of scenes should God call her to places where there’s war 🙈). She was 10 when she first felt pulled towards a certain country, with other countries along that line following thereafter. She was 18 when she finished university, and while she wanted to attend missions school right after, God said He had others plans for her.
Now 21, her heart still steadily beats for God, the nations, worship, theology, and people. Her ultimate life goal is to go to the lands God has shown her and to share the Gospel there. As much as the specifics, whens, and hows are vague to her, she knows that that desire will never waver.
She reminds herself everyday that the uncertainty is okay. Her God and His promises are certain anyway.
Being a natural planner, she had to accept the fact that the God she loves has a thing for surprises. She has repeatedly found herself plunging headfirst into situations she never would have gone into otherwise; staying and leaving as He tells her and wills. Here, she jots her thoughts and experiences, trying to keep up with all the changes in her and around her as she embraces the mystery and wonder of life.
She considers herself blessed to be called, for she is but of dust and ashes; an imperfect life continually empowered by His grace, completely surrendered to His Lordship and cause.
She welcomes you to take a look into her journey with her Maker.
