Rebecca's Story - A Vacation Turned Mission Trip

Rebecca is one of the founding members of the board for Global Hope India togetehr with her husband. They are currently living in Apex, North Carolina with their two cats. She doesn’t just have a bachelor’s degree but a Master’s and a PhD as well! She and her husband attend Hope Community Church and she is currently employed with the US office of personnel management where she is a performance manager. She’s a very active person with her love for soccer and participating marathons. When she was in high school, she carried the Olympics torch as an escort runner for the torch bearers, carrying the Olympics torch from time to time so it would never drop.

While she had been on a trip to six of the seven continents, her first trip to India was in March of 2011 and she had been to India multiple times since then. Each trip to India has been unique for her with different experiences and people to interact with even when she was visiting the same places.

Rebecca has always had a passion for missions and ever since her first mission trip when she was 14, she had always felt like God called to her for short term missions. Her first mission trip was to the Dominican Republic and, as she grew older, it became harder to find the time to do any mission trips. She prayed to God to give her and her husband a chance to serve God and God answered during the time they had been planning their vacation trip to Australia. The opportunity popped up for a mission trip to India led by our very own Pastor Kevin and they had gotten to know Pastor Kevin throuh the small group ministry which they had gotten involved with because of their trip to the Ukraine. The dates worked out, almost like the same dates they had planned to go to Australia. They prayed on it and decided to go to India and it was there where they found their calling. She hadn’t intended to make India one of the primary locations or countries to visit multiple times. For her and her husband, India was the place where they felt God called them. It wasn’t because it was necessarily a plan to go to India or they ended up falling in love with India and the people there, but God was truly sending them there for a reason.
