My God Story
I came to know Jesus at a young age but started to make my faith my own in middle school. I always dreamed of working overseas as a teacher. However, on an exchange trip in high school, God clearly spoke to me and told me to pursue international aid and development. Little did I know that, partway through my first degree, this would lead into nursing. Through my studies in university, I developed a passion for social justice and a heart for the Middle East. Despite pursuing different opportunities, when I heard about our work with the Y people and others who had been displaced, it was as if a light bulb went off and God was saying, "This is where I want you". I am passionate about maternal care and look forward to using this to open doors with the Y people and others who have been displaced.
"In building relationships with those who have been displaced and traumatized through war, I desire for people to find freedom and hope through Jesus."
"I am currently working to raise my support for my 2-year apprenticeship. When I go to the field, my priorities will be language and cultural learning, looking at ways to support maternal and child health, and discerning how God wants me to be involved long-term, after my apprenticeship."
