A short summary of my project:

Hello family and friends!

I have the tremendous opportunity to serve in Yap, Micronesia as a high school Biology teacher at the mission school located on the island. As a teacher there, not only will I be equipping my students with the tools they need to move forward in life, I hope to also inspire them to be the best person they can be in Christ.

Who am I?

I am a B.S. Biology student at Southern Adventist University that has a passion to serve others. I am on the pre-med track because I want to eventually use my medical skills as a medical missionary. During my time at Southern, I have become distracted with keeping good grades and have forgotten the reason why I want to graduate... which is to be equipped to be a medical missionary. While I am in Yap, I will be able to get a taste of the work that I believe God has called me to do.

My story

Ever since childhood, I have had the desire to be a missionary. When listening to the stories of missionaries in the jungles of Brazil or the mountains of Cambodia, I would envision myself doing the same, imagining myself preaching sermons and converting whole villages to Christendom. I now understand that mission work is not all amazing experiences; a lot of blood, sweat and tears go into the selfless work of missions. Because of that, I admire those who spend their life serving others and consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to serve in Yap for a year. My time in Micronesia will be a stepping stone towards my ultimate goal as a medical missionary. Your support on this trip enables me to gain experience that I would have never been able to gain while doing student mission work.

Prayers

Please pray for me while I am in Yap. Pray that God will give me the wisdom that I will need to see the true needs of my students and anyone else that I meet and encounter while I am there.

I have agreed to raise $3,600 for Southern's Student Missions program. The funds we raise will help cover our airfare, visas, insurance training, and care packages. I am excited to serve as a student missionary. Will you help me reach my goal? Whatever you are able to give is greatly appreciate by the 2018-19 student missionaries, the people we will serve, and also myself.
