Q: How did you navigate the decision to work for CBM as Global Field Staff?
Since childhood, I have been interested in seeing how God is at work around the world. I have been privileged to be a part of different faith communities that have given me opportunities to grow as I served here in Atlantic Canada and also supported me as I participated in different short-term missions experiences. In university, I started to feel that the Lord was calling me into ministry and as I continued to serve, I came to realize that my passion was for global discipleship. Each opportunity to learn and serve overseas brought more clarity to what I felt God was leading me into. My experiences with CBM’s SENT Intensive program and Kamp Tumaini helped me to grow in a deeper understanding of the work that CBM does. Learning about and seeing their ministry model in action helped me in my discernment process.
Q: What are you looking forward to in your role?
I am looking forward to meeting and working with CBM’s Latin America team and connecting with CBM’s partners in Central America. I am excited to form these relationships and seeing how God has been working in their lives. I love getting to know people and journeying with them. I am also excited about stepping into what God has been placing on my heart and to learn and grow as I continue to serve.
Q: What is one thing God has been revealing to you as you prepare to leave for the field?
God has been teaching me about the kind of heart He is looking for. God has plans and assignments for all of us, no matter our background, occupation, talents, and abilities. I think of Micah 6:8 which says “and what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” It is easy to get caught up in all the things I don’t know how to do yet or the feeling of being unqualified, but I have felt the Lord reminding me that what He is looking for is a heart that is willing, open, and mouldable. If I keep myself in a posture of seeking to love God with all that I am and all that I do, then He has the room to move and equip me for the things He is calling me to.
