words from women who’ve done mission with Baptist Women
Honestly, I went in . . . with no specific expectations, except fear of the unknown and a nervous feeling of inadequacy. However, I kept reminding myself that God is in control and if I will only trust him and go, He can use me in whatever way He knows best that will bring glory to His name!
This trip confirmed my thoughts about being able to take part in short-term missions. I feel more confident in helping beginners in a sewing class. As an immigrant myself, I am able to relate to the challenges of new immigrants and share my own experiences.
I returned to Canada knowing that God was knitting together my Trinidad faith (I came to faith as a young teen in Trinidad) and my Toronto/Canada faith. I am being made new!
I dreamed about doing this kind of thing after I retired. When God aligned everything to happen for me – that my love of sewing and my ‘social’ personality could be used and that the trip was affordable – I was beyond thrilled for this opportunity.
The women on the team all felt as if this STM was a ‘retreat,’ and through learning from each other and simply offering to God the little we had, I was so amazed how He worked everything out.
This trip helped me to continue to completely trust, to be more humble and thankful for what God has in store for me even though I don’t think I am good enough.
This trip has inspired me to be less “me” focused and to be more ‘He” focused.
I LOVED how our team all became true ‘sisters’ . . . during this week. All of us came with very different backgrounds and experiences but our love for Jesus united us all to serve Him with all of it.
With each gathering we attended and/or led, I felt more and more, the delight of God in worship that was simple, beautiful and authentic.
This trip confirmed to me that God can use anyone to glorify Him and impact others, even me – the daughter of a nonbeliever, a mother, pastor’s wife, secular-working, non-seminary-student everyday woman.
I often don’t feel overly qualified for many things, but He confirmed that even I could be used!
THANK YOU ALL for this amazing week.
