In August of 2015, God used the people of Haiti to completely transform my life. Prior to my first trip with Healing Haiti, I considered myself a Christian. When I returned, I learned what it means to become a true follower of Christ, seeking Him in everything I do. His undeniable presence completely blew me away during my short time in Haiti, and left my heart longing for the wholeness I only experienced while serving. I hoped God would lead me back some day, but wasn't sure where it would fit into my story.
Since returning from that trip, life has been full of trials for me. Along with these trials, though, has come a closeness to God that has brought me so much peace and joy. I am learning more each day what it means to fully trust Him with the life He has given me. I had plans to return to school this fall to pursue another degree, but what I have learned thus far is that when He reveals His own plan for me, it is always better than anything I could come up with myself. I am excited to surrender and use my gifts to serve His people, because right now I know in my heart that it is exactly where He wants me to be.
When making this decision, I weighed my options. I could have let this opportunity pass and focus on a career, my finances, and all the other earthly things that are of no value to me. Or...I could choose to be brave and love, serve, and grow in Christ. Once I looked at it this way, it became very clear what my next chapter would look like.
Please help support me, so that I can serve :)
You were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
