You know...the one with Beth Moore, Louie Giglio, David Crowder...well, forget all of that!
We had just finished attending a worship service, and the leader asked everyone to go to a quiet place and seek God. So, I went out to the foyer of the convention center and laid down. I can still feel my face on that gray, cold, concrete floor.
"Alright, Lord. I am all yours. Speak to me."
Then as clear as a bell, the still, small voice said,
"You will travel the world. Not for you, but for me. For a gospel purpose."
The voice was so evident. The instructions so clear.
So, I began researching mission agencies, desperately wanting to travel the next several summers doing mission work. I spent a summer in Vienna, Austria, a summer in Harare, Zimbabwe and a summer in Philadelphia, PA. The first two trips were spent working with kids and churches. The summer in PA was an internship in the recruitment office of a mission agency. The summers were fun, they taught me a lot, and I still keep in touch with many people that I met.
God was still unfolding His plan...
This is my story...
