From Exotic Dancing to Red Light District Missionary:
Becky has been on staff at Hope Community Church for 17 years. She currently is their medical and safety coordinator. She loves reading and jogging. She is recently newlywed and has been a long-time supporter of Global Hope India.
Becky shares that one of the ways missions has changed her life is now she views being joyful as a command and not only a feeling. Seeing the joy of a people with seemingly less than American culture who possess so much joy had an impact on her outlook.
Becky tells her story of going from a rebellious teen to exotic dancing to working on a church staff to missionary. She has also gone to India multiple times and saw God take her story full circle as she ministered to women in the Red Light District of Mumbai. There is a local ministry partner that helps sex workers by providing a safe place for their children while they are working. Becky describes the trip as "Extraordinary, poinent and personal to have it come full circle."
We discuss what a day of ministry in the field really looks like, what it feels like, what you spend your time doing? Is it dangerous? Scary? Heartbreaking?
Becky encourages anyone who has been on a short term mission trip to keep in contact with the organizations so that you can get updates. The work God has started does not stop when we leave and you will want to hear what God is doing!
Each episode will have a short devotional from the field that has been shared with thousands of people on trips and internationals. This episode's topic is surrender.
