I am 18 years old from Ontario, Canada. I’ve always grown up knowing of God, but I never had relationship with Him. In my first few years of high school, I was in a dark state of mind and couldn’t find any purpose for my life. It wasn’t until about a year ago where Jesus showed me the true love He has for me and in that moment I had felt a purpose for my life. I knew my purpose was to pursue the life that God has laid out before me, and even though sometimes I ignore his calling on my life, he has still taken me down such a beautiful path and I have been able to grow through Him more than I ever could have imagined.
It didn’t take long before I discovered a powerful gift that God has blessed me with. The power to bring others close to Him and to come to know who He is. I have had many opportunities to speak with people one on one about their relationship with Christ, and I have even had an opportunity to speak in front of different youth groups at not just my church, but churches around my region as well. This is a passion that God has put on my heart and I believe that I can use this gift every day through missions.
I am incredibly excited for this opportunity to spread God’s love in Laos. I understand that there will be struggles and barriers, but I believe that God is calling me to Laos and that He has an amazing journey laid out for me when I get there. Now, my prayer is that God working through me won’t be limited to just Laos, but far beyond that. That I will be able to bring home an incredible testimony that the Lord has placed on my life and that I will have a desire to pursue more of what He has for me.
