John 3:16, “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
As a child, we have all been asked at one point or another, what do we want to be when we grow up? To no surprise some of our answers where fantasizing such to be a princess or pirate yet some had a more realistic touch such as wanting to be a doctor. The possibilities are endless for many us living the American dream. We have that opportunity to educate ourselves at the exceptional school, have food placed in our hands by the push of a button, and even have luxury of having our own modes of transportation. These are just a few examples of things we don't think about as we become so accustomed to them being in our daily routines. Sadly, people around the world don't get to have these luxuries. Growing up in a third world country, I have seen the harsh realities many face just to make a living. I’ve learned that what you wear, even where you went to school honestly did not matter. Reality was that for some, school wasn’t an option, clothing may be the same shirt you have worn all week and had to hand wash in the river to get clean. This I would have to say is where my calling began. After hearing about the Young Adult Global Mission program, I felt that this is where I will put my calling into action. I have been blessed with an education where I have developed skills and talent, and I think the best thing I can do with them, is to share them YAGM with others that can not acquire them themselves.
