15 years…what were you doing 15 years ago? I was 22, a college graduate, and had no idea what was next. Since that time, I have changed careers twice, driven across the U.S. from coast to coast—multiple times—, traveled the world, spent time on 6 out of 7 continents, and lived in a foreign country for almost two years.
As I reflect back, the statement “not all those who wander are lost” comes to mind. Some have said “I don’t know what I want to do when I grow up.” 🙂 However, I like to say, I have followed well in my Master’s footsteps.
So what’s next you ask? I am returning from living overseas and serving as an RN with Wycliffe Bible Translators in Papua New Guinea. As in the past career/life changes, the Lord has used my past experiences to guide and direct me to the next opportunity to serve those in need.
I will continue serving with Wycliffe in the U.S. as a Launch Coordinator. I’ll be based outside of Columbia, SC while I attend Columbia International School to obtain my M.Div in Care & Counseling.
A Launch Coordinator provides proactive support and care for new Wycliffe USA members from the date of their acceptance through the completion of their first term of service. By furthering my education, I will be able to combine Biblical knowledge, with understanding from a missionary perspective, to assist in furthering the life and call of a missionary.
Before I will be able to start my job as a Launch Coordinator, I will have to reach 100% of the budget that Wycliffe has set for me. I have a goal of reaching 100% by August 1st, so that I can start my training as a Launch Coordinator on August 6th. I currently have a deficit of $650/month to reach 100%.
