Be a Part of His story in Order to Make History - Jennifer's Story

Jennifer, who was born and raised in the Dominican Republic, moved to the US at age 10 and felt a calling to go to India years later while at University. When she got to go on her first trip to India she felt loved by the people there and decided that she was going to be a non-resident missionary and has returned two other times since. 

She shares the importance of just saying "yes" when called. You can waste a lot of time wondering why, what's the point, how will you pay, etc. 

It's very natural for people to go on a short-term mission trip to serve the people of the country they but it's not uncommon for trip participants to grow in their personal relationship with Jesus.

Looking back on her mission experience she feels every trip has been different and shaped her into the person she is today.

Jennifer shares about her teenage years. She wanted to be popular out of selfish ambition and was willing to do anything wrong to get people's attention. Even in big crowds, she felt lonely and thought what's the point? It wasn't until high school where her brother accepted Jesus and invited her to YoungLife and she felt like the leaders were authentic and genuinely interested in her. It was at a camp she heard the Gospel and she realized her life had a purpose and was not meaningless. The speaker said "If you want to be a part of history you have to be a part of His Story." and she accepted Jesus and began her journey.

Kevin shares a devotional from the mission field on boldness. What does it take to distract you from the mission? If you want to be bold you need to eliminate distraction. 

"The mission never ends. The trip might be over, but the mission never ends." - Kevin
