Why did you choose to go on this mission trip?
"I've always wanted to go on a missions
trip. And this was the first opportunity that had come up. Missions has
always interested me! I'm very excited to see what the missions field is
like and to see God working in another country."
How did you come to know Christ as your savior?
"I grew up in a very loving family. We
went to a Methodist church regularly. I always believed in God and
Heaven. I even thought I was going to Heaven because I was a pretty good
person. When I was a Freshman in High School my sister talked me into
going to Hidden Acres (an E-Free church camp near my house) for Sr. High
camp. It was there that I realized for the first time I was a sinner and
needed to be saved from my sins. For Jesus Christ loved us so much He
died for us on the cross to cover our sins so that we may go to Heaven.
I realized for the fist time that I had never been living for Christ to
begin with. That in order to live for Him I had to ask Him into my life
and give my life completely over to Him! I love the verse (Ephesians
2:8-9) because it tells us we were saved by grace alone and it is
nothing that we ever did to get to Heaven!"
