People say that you are lucky if you like what you do for a living. For me, it is so much more than that. I was made for this.
In my career, I have had my heart broken so many times, but I would not want it any other way. I have cried with mothers in their darkest hours, after the death of a child. I have held children that have lost their entire family. I have rejoiced with a village that has experienced the life-giving miracle of a water well. I have run with children that have been noursihed after years of hunger. I have prayed with women that have experienced freedom after years of forced slavery.
I am continually amazed at the opportunity I have been given to witness these things. I am grateful to work for Life Outreach International, a ministry that seeks to take the love of Jesus to the hurting in our world. In my role, I have visited 64 countries, and hope that I am just getting started.
"The Spirit of the Lord GOD is on Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and freedom to the prisoners;"
Isaiah 61:1 (HCSB)
