How is God Transforming me

   I am so happy for the journey God has put me on! Never did I think that I would be where I am in a Spiritual sense. When I got saved, I always had the enemy come and tell me that I would never be spiritual enough to help people like my leaders. Sense day one of M.A.P. God has changed my spiritual sense in a way where I think, hear, and do things differently. 

     God has been challenging me every day with a new assignment to change and mold me into what He wants me to be. I have been praying consistently for God to use me and to give me strength, courage, boldness, and a new anointing every day. He has brought me through many storms the past couple weeks where I have been battling mentally in my mind. I never really had patience before M.A.P. started, because I didn’t know exactly what He has called me to do. I have been open to God through prayer and have been trusting him to do with what he wants to do through me! 

     When God brought me through the storm of my mind, He has been challenging with tasks throughout my church. God has been putting burdens in my heart for me to serve! Throughout my time going from church to service, I have done my best to serve! We went to Georgia, which was our first trip during the M.A.P. program. I was able to Volunteer to help serve everyday and I couldn’t be more blessed to do so. This is still just the beginning for my long road ahead, But I’m excited for what God is going to do in my life and for what’s around me!

Why Did I Chose This Missionary? Why Did He Sacrifice So Much?

Early in his life, George Grenfell heard in Sunday-school class about the works of David Livingstone, one of the greatest African missionaries who ever lived! From that point, Grenfell carried in his heart a burden for Africa. George Grenfell was born on August 21, 1894. He was a pious boy, who attended St. Matthews Anglican Sunday-school. Eventually Grenfell left and started going to a Baptist Sunday-school. Where he heard the stories of livingstone

     When he grew older, in 1873, he gave up his business and went to the Baptist college, at Bristol. He studied of how he could become a foreign missionary. In the following year, he was accepted by the Baptist missionary Society for work in Africa.

     His first missions trip in 1874 was a huge success. From that point on, it changed his life and future ministry! After a couple years, he was finally able to do what he was called to do. Throughout his 30 plus years in Africa, many sacrificed their lives to help George Grenfell, but most importantly, for the Lord. God used him in the Congo like no one could ever imagine! Even after all the tragic loses he suffered, he never let go his God given dream! He passed away where he ministered in a 1906. One of his faithful Christian Servents, write in his Dairy:

    “We put him down into the grave. Then we sang another Hymn. Last of all we closed the grave and replaced the earth. And so the death of Tata was finished.”

I pray to God I can have enough faith to give everything, including my Riches, Hobbies, Home, and even my own family for the Kingdom of God

MAP - God, Why Am I Here?

My first missions trip set a fire in my heart for the world! My heart was crushed when I saw kids with nothing running after me with with pure joy. It opened my eyes not just to what’s out of the country, but how hungry people are in our community and we don’t even realize it! The way God opened my eyes to this world lit my heart on fire!

     If you told me 5 years ago where I would be right now, I probably would have laughed in your face and told you that’s impossible! Truly, I can’t thank the Lord enough for helping me from road that I was once going down. I got saved when I was 13 years old and filled with the Holy Ghost at the age of 15!

     I know God called me to M.A.P. to learn, grow, and to do what He has called me to do! I love this world! I love missions. I love my community. I want to have the strength and faith to accomplish anything the Lord asks of me. My dreams is His dream! The same thing I received is what I want everyone else to receive!
