I have been on 9 overseas mission trips, 3 of them being with Youth Missions International. I went to South Korea as a student leader, I spent an entire summer interning with YMI in which I went to Guatemala with a team, and then I returned to South Korea as a team leader. Having filled three completely different roles, I have been changed and poured into by my team leaders, and in turn, was able to pour into the lives of my peers in Guatemala - then as a team leader (S.Korea) into the lives of my team. It has been a life-changing and humbling experience as I have watched God, time after time, change lives and grow His children so that they can learn how to live their faith, and teach the people in their circles how to do the same. It has been confimed in me that the Lord wants me to ultimately be teaching English in the Dominican Republic as my life ministry, for which I am striving towards - and it is through these trips that He has not only revealed that to me...but He has also used them to change me, mold me, and prepare me for what He has ahead in His plan that I am priviledged to join in on. How exciting!
