Hannah's Story: Overwhelming Need for Jesus

Hannah is married to her husband, Brandon, and they have a 20-month old daughter, Mia. They are actually expecting their second daughter in just a few weeks. Hannah holds a master's in Molecular Diagnostic Science from UNC Chapel Hill and a bachelor's in Biochemistry from Campbell University, both of which are located in North Carolina. She and her husband attend the Summit Church with pastor J D Greear. Hannah has spent several years in the choir and they have obviously participated in several small groups. Hannah is employed at Roche Pharmaceutical Company where she is a Senior Clinical Research Associate. She loves coffee and reading almost as much as she loves Jesus and going to India.

She grew up in a Christian household so she was exposed to Jesus her entire life. But when she went to college, she went through a period where she almost became an atheist. It was a very dark period in her life where she was very depressed and was wrestling with faith because of a number of reasons. One day while she was in her college apartment, she just broke down and found herself crying out to God. Afterwards, she felt a huge calm come over her heart and she asked God to be her savior and to guide her life. Her faith became her own from that moment forward.

Hannah has gone on two mission trips to India. She went to Orissa in 2013 where they took the children and staff of New Life Children’s home on a five-day excursion to the Capitol. She spent the week just loving on the children, getting to know them, and celebrating who they were. Her second trip to India was in 2015 where she led a team. The focus on that trip was to have a five-day discipleship program where they taught the older kids what it meant to be a disciple. They also went to a local village where they did two days worth of vocation Bible school with the kids there.

When asked to describe her missions trip experience in one word, Hannah said “overwhelming”. The mission trips were mostly positive but in itself the sights, smells, sounds, and the number of people in one place just assaulted her senses when she landed there. What were also overwhelming were the color and heart of the people. There is a joy in India that Hannah has never seen anywhere else. She definitely felt the people’s overwhelming sense of need for Jesus.
