Brad's Story: Testing and Growing Faith


Brad is a graduate of Appalachian State University in North Carolina with a degree in Electronic Media and Broadcasting. He attends Hope Community Church with pastor Mike Lee. And he is a professional videographer and photographer. He is actually serving at Sit Means Sit Dog Training where he enjoys combining his love for dogs with his love for photography. This means lots of photos for families and their pets. 


Brad is a one trip alumni of Global Hope India. He shares his mission trip experience where he went to Orissa and stayed at an orphanage with over two hundred children. Before going on the trip, he shares that he was really on the fence about it. He was thinking that a mission trip might not be for him so he started to pray about it. When he did, it became very clear that God was telling him to go. Despite resisting for the longest time and waiting past the deadline to sign up, he still felt like God was pushing him to go. And so he did. 


He further realized that going was the right thing to do the moment he got to the orphanage. The children greeted them and he received a sweet handwritten note from one of the kids. He has kept that note and still has it up to this day. Brad shares how he was able to establish a connection with some of the kids there. He was amazed at how smart and strong the kids were. He believes that they taught him a lot more than he taught them through the way they live their lives. 


When asked how missions have changed Brad’s life, he says that it has given him a different perspective. He shares that this different perspective is multifaceted and not just one particular thing. Going on a mission trip affirmed a lot of things for Brad. He realized that living a life of faith is not easy. He believes that God grows our faith by testing it.
