INTERVIEW

Q: How did you navigate the decision to work for CBM as Global Field Staff?

My decision to work for CBM came about because of my experience working with CBM previously. Working with Aaron and Erica Kenny, former Field Staff in Africa, helped me understand how Integral Mission works and how word and deed go hand in hand in spreading the gospel. This experience also allowed me to grow in my love of Christ and helped me develop my love of working with people of diverse cultures and origins. CBM also encourages working closely with one another and being mindful of each other’s welfare: socially, spiritually, physically and mentally.

Q: What is one thing God has been revealing to you through your work?

Over the past couple of months, God has been revealing to me the need to set right my relationships; with those around me, those close to me, in my family, my neighbourhood, my church and those I work closely with. God has constantly been reminding me that charity begins at home. I am also learning that I should strive to make those around me feel important, worthy, loved, and appreciated. Through my work in Kenya, I have worked with Muslim communities as well as Christian/ Kenyan communities. This has taught me to appreciate the diversity in our cultures, religion, and demographic differences and appreciate all that each person brings to the table. This is a holistic mindset in terms of appreciating each other’s religion and culture and how we work well together in making our communities thrive.
