Her Story

About ten years ago, the Lord began to impress on my heart that He had a specific purpose for my life. At the same time, I began learning about missions. Previously, I was ignorant and held many misconceptions about missionary work. As I learned more, I realized how much of my interests fit into missions - my adventurous spirit, love for travel, and delight in experiencing other cultures. Thus, I stopped looking for a secular job that contained these interests and pressed more into my relationship with Christ. As I grew in my faith and relationship with God, I continued to pray about His plans for my life. Then, I learned of the IJM. I found all of my interests culminated in this organization, including my passion of justice for the oppressed. Throughout these past years, God has grown my faith, and my skills through my career, to equip me to go on mission with Him in the Philippines as a legal fellow. And, so, I go!
