I’m a big fan of books, tv, movies and hanging out with friends. To sum it up, I love a good story in any way that I can get it. That is also my favorite part of my job – listening and sharing God stories.
As both a Mobilizer and the Communications Coordinator at United World Mission I have the privilege of hearing God’s stories unfold in a variety of ways. Stories from the lives of people he is calling into missions, stories from people who are serving around the globe to stories where people are seeing God answer prayer, and stories of people who are hearing of Christ’s love for the first time.
A recent story happened as I was working with a young couple who were feeling called into long-term, international missionary service. They had been through the process with another agency but was declined due to potential educational issues with their newly adopted son.
As we went through the mobilization process a few possible places around the world began to seem like good opportunities for them. It was decided that Scotland was where they would like to serve based off their giftings, passions, experiences coupled with the opportunity and needs there. During their interview they shared with the interview team that they are from Tennessee, which the Regional Leaders for Europe also had connections to TN. They quickly discovered that the Regional Leader’s daughter was the social worker in their case for the adoption of their son! What a small world and awesome confirmation from God that He was at work in bringing them into this role with United World Mission.
I love seeing how God weaves stories together. It encourages me to trust Him more and I hope it does for you too!
