My life has significantly changed because of short term missions. Not only has my faith in God and relationship with Jesus grown, my eyes have been opened to all the different ways I can serve as the hands and feet of Jesus. I realized I am driven by building relationships and loving people and missions is such a special way to do just that!
On the mission field, I learned and practiced how to be interruptible. One day I was at a coffee shop in Ecuador completing paperwork and a lady sat next to me. I felt led to talk with her and next thing you know, she was going through a hard season, seeking for answers. I was able to share about Jesus and we ended up becoming friends!
